Khabib vs McGregor is quite possibly the biggest MMA fight of the year and if you’re as excited to watch this as me then you’ll be counting down the days until the event takes place.
Unfortunately depending on where you are in the world depends on what kind of coverage you’ll get access to.
There are plenty of countries that aren’t showing the fight and in others, it’s reserved for cable networks that you might not have access to.
Never fear though because in this guide I’m going to show you how you can watch essentially for free from any country in the world.

What you’ll need to watch Khabib vs McGregor
The entire Khabib vs McGregor fight and Volkov vs Lewis bout is being shown completely for free on Russian TV network, MatchTV!.
If you’re in Russia it’s simply a case of visiting their site to watch but if you’re outside Russia you’ll be blocked.
To unblock this completely free stream of the fights and watch in any country you’ll need to get yourself a VPN app. A VPN allows you to disguise your location which will unblock the live stream and let you watch anywhere.
The stream is a completely legal stream from Russia, all you’re doing is disguising your location to make you look like you are in Russia.
There are a handful of VPN providers that are suitable for this but I recommend ExpressVPN. They’re one of the fastest which means you won’t suffer any buffering which would ruin your enjoyment of the fight.
However, if you want to shop around then there are a couple of other good options and below are my top choices.
Top 3 VPN services to watch Khabib vs McGregor:
All you need to do is select one of the three providers above and sign up for their service. A VPN service will set you back a couple of dollars or pounds for a 1-month subscription but it’s worth taking it for longer as it’s cheaper.
