With UFC 232 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 232? Yes! In fact, there are two key addons you can use to watch UFC 232 on Kodi, although you will likely need to use a VPN if you want to see all of the undercard matches and the main event. If you follow our guide, you may also be able to get most of the event for free, even abroad.
Our guide will show you how to watch UFC 232 abroad through Kodi using only official sources, as well as which VPNs will work best with Kodi to access the event.
UFC 232 will begin with several preliminary fights, starting at 6 PM EST / 3 AM GMT. The main fight card starts at 10 PM EST.
Different countries have different streaming sources, but for those looking to watch online, you’ll need to sign up for UFC Fight Pass to get the preliminary matches. And if you’re in Germany, you can watch the main even on DAZN for free using the free trial option. Unfortunately, no legitimate streaming services are carrying the main card events outside of Germany, but a VPN may work for anyone those who want to sign up for DAZN outside of Germany. Otherwise, you’ll need to use a PPV option there. You can find out more here.
Kodi addons for UFC 232 Jones vs. Gustafsson
As stated, our recommended options for UFC 232 on Kodi is to use UFC Fight Pass and DAZN. However, there are a large number of Kodi addons that might be able to stream Jones vs. Gustafsson 2. 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 232.
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 (UFC Fight Pass and DAZN) use geographic content blocking. As a result, you won’t be able to access as much of the UFC 232 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 232 on Kodi
UFC 232 Jones vs. Gustafsson is a Pay-Per-View event in every country around the world. However, in most locations, you can get the early preliminary and preliminary matches without paying a dime, and in Germany, you can get the main event for free through DAZN, or at a low cost.
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 main event is available through BT Sport, while the prelims are available through UFC Fight Pass.
US fans can bypass the Fox Sports requirement by signing up to UFC Fight Pass and connecting to a VPN. You can also sign up to DAZN in the US for free with a one-month free trial and may be able to bypass DAZN’s content blocking to get the German broadcast of the main event, including Jones vs. Gustafsson. There’s no guarantee that a VPN will work with Germany DAZN, however, so you may need to be prepared to pay for PPV access just in case.
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 in high quality, and according to what we’ve seen, all of the UFC 232 preliminary events will be available on Kodi through the UFC Fight Pass addon.
If you’re in the US, you may want to use this option, as UFC Fight Pass carries all of the preliminary matches in countries outside of the US. Considering UFC Fight Pass has a 7-day free trial, that means you can enjoy the preliminary matches for free.
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 the Pay-Per-View options that exist.
How to watch UFC 232 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 232 options
UFC 232 should be available in the US, UK, Australia, Germany, and in more locations abroad. Using a VPN and UFC Fight Pass, 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 232 Jones vs. Gustafsson for more details on where and how to watch the December 29 event.
