UFC 255 live stream: how to watch Figueiredo vs Perez for free

Las Vegas will play host to a thrilling night of MMA at UFC 255 on Saturday, when Brazilian powerhouse Deiveson Figueiredo defends his flyweight title against Alex Perez. The co-featured bout sees Valentina Shevchenko defend her crown against Brazil’s Jennifer Maia. Scotland’s Paul Craig will be in action against ‘Shogun’ Rua, too. Follow our guide below on how to watch a Figueiredo vs Perez UFC 255 live stream.

Those living in Italy, Spain or Germany can watch UFC 255 live and free using DAZN’s 30-day trial. Going to be abroad? You can use a VPN to safely access your preferred streaming service from anywhere. Here is a full list of UFC broadcasters covering the rest of the world.

UFC 255 returns to Sin City this weekend as former hairdresser and sushi chef Deiveson Figueiredo (19-1) defends his flyweight title for the first time. Figueiredo – now better known to fans as “The God of War” – will take on American fighter Alex Perez in what should be the highlight of UFC 255.

The prelims will get underway about 1am GMT. The main card starts around 3am GMT, with Figueiredo vs Perez expected around 5am GMT.

Figueiredo has reigned supreme this year, having twice defeated top UFC fighter Joseph Benavidez. The 32-year-old will be looking to finish the year – and his opponent – in style. If things go his way, he’s nailed-on to win Fighter of the Year.

Alex Perez is no pushover, mind. The ferocious Californian (23-5) has proven he’s a class act, taking out Jussier Formiga with a TKO last time out.

And before Figueiredo and Perez take to the Octagon, there’s the co-main event to look forward to. No-nonsense women’s champion Valentina “The Bullet” Shevchenko will face off against Jennifer Maia in defence of her flyweight crown.

UFC 255 live stream anywhere in the world using a VPN 

Even if you have subscribed to the relevant rights holders, you won’t be able to access these streaming services when outside your own country. The service will know your location based on your IP address, and will automatically block your access.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN or NordVPN.

ExpressVPN three months free with a year-long plan
You can get three months free when you sign up to a year-long plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets. Express also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.View Deal

Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the fight, and pick a server which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming service and you’re in.
