UFC is back and if you’re an MMA fan then UFC Fight Night 109 promises to be explosive.
If you’re a bit like me, you don’t want to pay over the top prices to stream events like this, after all they can soon add up and become pricey.
Unfortunately, UFC Fight Night 109 between Alexander Gustafsson and Glover Teixeria is a premium fight and so it’ll be shown on paid TV services only.
The good news is though that the fight will be being streamed online for free in Russia and with the help of a small tool called a VPN, you can change your online location and appear as if you’re in Russia. This will allow you to stream the whole fight live no matter where you live in the world.
