With UFC 230 just around the corner, Kodi users may be scrounging around for effective streaming methods. Are there any Kodi addons that can be used to live stream UFC 230? Yes! In fact, there are two key addons you can use to watch UFC 230 on Kodi, although you will likely need to use a VPN if you want to see all of the undercard matches and even the main event, depending on where you live. If you follow our guide, you may also be able to get most or all of the event for free even if you’re abroad.
Our guide will show you how to watch UFC 230 abroad through Kodi using only official sources, as well as which VPNs will work best with Kodi to access the event.
UFC 230 will begin with a few early preliminary fights, starting at 3:15 PM EST / 8:15 GMT. There will be a preliminary card at 5 PM EST, followed by the main event starting at 7 PM EST. Different countries have different streaming sources, but for those looking to watch for free, you’ll need to sign up to trial accounts for DAZN and UFC Fight Pass. Both of these options have working Kodi addons available.
Kodi addons for Corimer vs. Lewis
As stated, our two recommended addons are DAZN and UFC Fight Pass. However, there are a large number of Kodi addons that might be able to stream Corimer vs. Lewis. Based on what we can tell, you may see some sources recommend the following options:
- Planet MMA
- Supremacy Sports
- Ultra IPTV
- Sublime IPTV
- Other third-party addons not mentioned here
We do not recommend you turn to these or any other addon options not suggested here. The options we’ve recommended are legitimate sources and offer trustworthy streams. Unofficial and potentially pirated streams may carry malicious code and are far less likely to work when you need them. As noted by hijacking events that occurred with addons like Exodus, Bubbles, and Gaia, we do not recommend Kodi users turn to third-party sources for UFC 230.
Warning: Kodi should only be used for content to which you have the legal right to access. Neither the Kodi Foundation nor Comparitech advocates the use of Kodi for piracy.
Warning: Your ISP can see you streaming data through Kodi
The primary sources you’ll want to use for Kodi (DAZN and UFC Fight Pass) use geographic content blocking. As a result, you won’t be able to access as much of the UFC 230 event as you want without a bypass.
Additionally, many ISPs not only throttle streaming video data down to SD quality but can see all of your streaming activity in general. Laws in some countries allow your ISP to collect data on your activities and hand it over to third parties.
A virtual private network, or VPN, will help solve both of those problems. A solid VPN will effectively bypass content blocking and hide your streaming activity from your ISP, making it impossible for their content filters to automatically throttle you or see what sites you’re accessing.
Of the options we’ve tested for Kodi, we find IPVanish to be among the best. Not only is it inexpensive, but it also has extremely fast servers for those looking to stream sports through Kodi. You’ll find IPVanish is a go-to option for Kodi users looking to hide their streaming habits while maintaining a fast connection.
How to watch UFC 230 Cormier vs Lewis on Kodi
UFC 230 Cormier vs Lewis is a Pay-Per-View event in most countries around the world. In the US, you can watch the early prelims for free through UFC Fight Pass, but you’d need access to Fox Sports 1 to watch the prelims, while you need Pay-Per-View access to get to the main event.
Meanwhile, in the UK, the entire event is available through BT Sport.
However, Germany is a key focus here for all Kodi users. German MMA fans will get to watch UFC 230 from start to finish using UFC Fight Pass and DAZN. Both of these services offer free trials which you can cancel after UFC 230 is over.
UFC Fight Pass on Kodi
To get UFC Fight Pass on Kodi, you’ll need to do the following:
- Go to UFC’s website and sign up for a free trial of UFC Fight Pass
- Next, download the UFC Fight Pass Kodi addon (zip file)
- Now, open Kodi and go to Video addons
- Next, click on the Package Symbol on the top left
- Click on Install from zip
- Locate your downloads folder, then click to install the plugin.video.ufcfightpass addon
- Now, return to your Video addons screen and find the Fight Pass addon
- Right-click (or long press on Amazon Firestick) to open the settings. Enter your Fight Pass username and password where required
You will now be able to load UFC Fight Pass streams available to you. Your streams should load, and according to what we’ve seen, all of the UFC 230 events will be available on Kodi through the UFC Fight Pass addon. As stated earlier, the UFC currently says the main event, Cormier vs Lewis, is available for German fight fans. As such, you may need to connect to a German server through IPVanish to get access to the main event.
DAZN on Kodi
You can easily access the DAZN addon directly from the official Kodi addon repository.
- From your Kodi home screen, click on Video addons
- Next, click on Install from repository
- Locate the Kodi addon repository, then click on Video addons
- Find the DAZN addon, then click Install
- You’ll find the DAZN addon from the Kodi home screen > Video addons
- Right-click / long press the DAZN addon to input your username and password
Now you’ll be able to load any available streams from DAZN. The difficulty with DAZN may be that IPVanish won’t work to bypass the German server, however. If you’re having issues getting IPVanish to access the German version of the site through Kodi, we recommend you utilize UFC Fight Pass instead.
How to watch UFC 230 on Firestick
You can download and install Kodi on the Amazon Fire TV, including the Firestick. The app is not available through the Amazon App Store, so you’ll need to sideload Kodi on the Firestick.
Once you have Kodi installed, all of the addons listed above will work, and you can install them onto Kodi using the same steps mentioned.
Additional UFC 230 options
UFC 230 should be available in the US, UK, Australia, Germany, and in more locations abroad. Using a VPN and UFC Fight Pass or DAZN, you should be able to get access to the entire fight, including the prelims.
However, if you’re looking to watch the fight outside of Kodi, there may be a few additional options, especially if you’re in the US. You may want to check out our regular streaming guide for how to watch UFC 230 Cormier vs Lewis for more details on where and how to watch the November 3 event.
