Watch UFC 223 On Kodi: Ferguson Vs Khabib Live Streams to Watch Online

Calling all UFC fans: it’s time to start preparing for a massive upcoming match of Ferguson vs Khabib, set to take place in just a few weeks. The US fighter Tony Ferguson will take on Russia’s Khabib Nurmagomedov in April’s biggest fight. With an impressive 25-0-0 record this season, Khabib “The Eagle” Nurmagomedov might look to have the edge, and he’s the current favourite, but don’t discount Tony “El Cucuy” Ferguson who has the superior reach. There’s also the undercard event to look forward to, in which Alex Caceres will take on Artem Lobov.

The event, UFC 223, will take place on Saturday 7th April 2018 in the Brooklyn area of New York, but you can watch the fight live online in a variety of ways. Read on for links and tips on how to watch UFC 223: Ferguson vs Khabib online, including links for Kodi.

Purchase An Official Pay Per View Subscription

If you’re looking for an official stream that has the highest quality and is pretty much gaurenteed to work, then you can get a one-time event pay per view subscription from ufc.tv. This is the official video service from ufc.com, so you can be sure that it’s legit and that it will have all of the information you want and every moment of the fight. To get a pay per view subscription, you can go to https://www.ufc.tv/events and find the event you want, then choose to purchase pay per view in either standard or high definition. This is available to viewers around the world, with payment possible in a big variety of currencies.

The downside to an official subscription is the price: typically a pay per view stream costs $50 or so for high definition, and this only gives you access to that one event. Another option is to take advantage of the special deal which allows you to purchase an SD stream on one event and get 50% a 6 month UTC Fight Pass. A Fight Pass lets you rewatch previous events on demand and access extra bonus content, which is great for big UFC fans.

Also, Android users who have a subscription to the fight can watch using the official UFC app, which is available in the Play Store at https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.neulion.smartphone.ufc.android&feature=search_result.

Watch UFC Fights On Kodi

But what if you don’t have the cash to pay for a pay per view subscription? After all, $50 to watch one match is a pretty steep price tag. In that case, you might want to try a free option like watching the fight through Kodi. Kodi is an open source media centre software which is designed for organising and displaying the media files that you have saved to your hard drive. But you can extend the functionality of the software in all sorts of ways by installing extra pieces of software called add-ons. These add-ons can be used for everything from watching YouTube videos, to listening to podcasts, to watching live sports. And best of all, they are all free for anyone to use.

Naturally, there are some down sides to using free streams of pay per view events. The quality might not be as high as a paid stream, and the stream you’re watching could go down, forcing you to find another stream and hoping you don’t miss any vital action. But overall, it’s great to have free options for streaming as well as paid options so that you can make the choice which is right for you.

Below we’ll introduce you to two add-ons for Kodi that you can use to stream pay per view matches. We’ll show you how to install each one and then how to use it to watch UFC fights like the Ferguson vs Khabib match on the 7th April.

Why Kodi Users Need To Use A VPN

Copyright holders are notoriously litigious against people who access their content illegally, and sports broadcasters especially so. ISPs tend to observer their customers’ activities and may report if you access copyrighted content to the copyright holder. If you are caught using Kodi add-ons to stream pay per view matches illegally, then you could have a fine or even prosecution.

To protect yourself when using Kodi add-ons, you should get a VPN. This works by encrypting all of the data that your Kodi device sends over the internet, so that no one can see whether or not you are streaming. Even your ISP won’t be able to see what websites you are visiting or whether or not you are streaming video.

We Recommend IPVanish

The VPN that we recommend for Kodi users is IPVanish. This is our recommendation based on its lightning fast connection speeds which are perfect for streaming video in high definition. In addition, they offer strong 256-bit encryption and a no logging policy to guarantee your privacy stays protected. They have a large server network of 850 servers in 60 different countries around the world and their software is available for Windows, Mac OS, Android, Linux, iOS, Windows Phone, and many other platforms.

IPVanish offers a 7-day money back guarantee which means you have a week to test it risk-free. Please note that Addictive Tips readers can save a massive 60% here on the IPVanish annual plan, taking the monthly price down to only $4.87/mo.

Once you have a VPN in place to keep you safe, we can move on to installing the Kodi add-ons which will let you watch the big fight live.

Kodi Add-Ons For Streaming UFC

Below we’re going to show you instructions for installing and using two different add-ons, both of which you can use to watch Ferguson vs. Khabib. If you watch lots of other sports as well as URC then you’ll want to check out SportsDevil. Whereas if you want to watch movies, TV shows, and stand up comedy as well as live sports then you should look into UK Turk Playlists.

SportsDevil

SportsDevil is probably the most popular add-on for watching sports in the Kodi community. It has an amazing range of sports, from football and basketball to sports like UFC, WWE, and boxing which is what we are looking for today. Unfortunately, the SportsDevil add-on is no longer available in its home repository as it was taken down last year. But the good news is that you can still download the add-on if you know where to look, and it works just as well as it ever did. This add-on is a must for anyone who loves to watch live sports.

Here’s how to install the SportsDevil add-on to your Kodi system:

  1. Begin on your Kodi home screen
  2. Find the settings icon that looks like a cog and click it, then go to File Manager
  3. Click on Add source
  4. Click where it says <None>
  5. Type in the following URL: http://kdil.co/repo/ Be careful to including the http:// or it won’t work correctly
  6. Name the source something memorable, like kdil

  7. Click OK
  8. Go back to your home screen
  9. Click on Add-ons
  10. Click on the icon that looks like an open box
  11. Click on Install from zip file
  12. Click on kdil, then on kodil.zip

  13. Wait for a moment, then you will see a popup notification once the source is installed
  14. Click on Install from repository
  15. Click on ..Kodil Repository
  16. Click on Video add-ons
  17. Scroll down to SportsDevil (you have to scroll a lot!) and click on it
  18. A screen opens that has details of the add-on. Click Install from the menu at the bottom
  19. Wait for a moment, and you’ll see one more notification that the add-on has been installed

Once you have SportsDevil installed, you can use it to watch UFC matches like Ferguson vs Khabib live:

  1. Start at your Kodi home screen
  2. Go to Add-ons
  3. Go to Video add-ons
  4. Go to SportsDevil
  5. Click on Live Sports

  6. You’ll see a list of channels that show live streams. We’ll use FirstRowSports.eu
  7. Click on Boxing / WWE / UFC

  8. On the day of the fight, April 7th, this section will have links to live streams for you to choose from
  9. Choose any link and click it
  10. Now the stream will begin
  11. If you can’t find a working stream here, you can also try out the other link providers in SportsDevil. Providers like Dimsports.eu, LiveTV.ru, and SportsStream365 are all good options for watching UTF matches

UK Turk Playlists

Another very popular add-on for Kodi is UK Turk Playlists. Don’t be fooled by the name – although it started off as a source for British and Turkish content, this add-on has grown to encompass all sorts of things and now has a ton of content including movies, TV shows, and sports. The sports are what we’re here for, so you’ll be happy to hear that UK Turk Playlists gives you access to an absolutely massive number of live sports channels from all over the world, including some paid channels.

In Britain, the Ferguson vs. Khabib fight is going to be shown on the BT Sports channel. And fortunately, UK Turk Playlists includes links so you can watch that channel live and for free. Just follow these instructions to install the add-on and you can use it to watch BT Sports and enjoy the fight on match day:

  1. Begin on your Kodi home screen
  2. Find the settings icon that looks like a cog and click it, then go to File Manager
  3. Click on Add source
  4. Click where it says <None>
  5. Type in the following URL: https://addoncloud.org/ukturk/install Be careful to including the http:// or it won’t work correctly
  6. Name the source something memorable, like ukturk
  7. Click OK
  8. Go back to your home screen
  9. Click on Add-ons
  10. Click on the icon that looks like an open box

Conclusion

We’ve shown you a number of ways that you can watch the Ferguson vs. Khabib match on April 7th. If you’re a big UFC fan and you’ve been really looking forward to this fight, then you might want to invest in an official pay per view subscription for the evening so that you can watch the match live and in the best quality. The subscription costs around $50 though, so that is pricey for one evening’s viewing. Still, if you’re planning to have lots of friends round to watch together and to make a big evening of it then it might be worth you paying for the best of quality.

Alternatively, if you want to watch the match but don’t want to shell out that much cash, then there are free options you can try. With Kodi, you can install either the SportsDevil add-on or the UK Turk Playlists add-on to watch the match. For sports fans who want to regularly watch games from sports like football, basketball, hockey, and baseball as well as boxing, WWE, and UFC, then SportsDevil is a must-have add-on. Or for those who want to watch lots of movies and TV shows as well as live sports, then UK Turk Playlists is a great choice.
