VPNs are essential if you want to watch MMA fights from around the world. Sometimes you prefer to watch a particular country's broadcast, sometimes you're in a region where streaming services are blocked, or perhaps it's another reason.

Whatever the reason you're here, we've got everything you need to know about how to use a VPN to watch the UFC.

What is a VPN?

First, we need to explain what a VPN even is. VPN stands for Virtual Private Network and is a "mechanism for creating a secure connection between a computing device and a computer network, or between two networks, using an insecure communication medium such as the public Internet."

VPN's are used normally to connect with a location you are not in. For example, if you are in the United States but want to stream a TV show that only airs in the United Kingdom, you'd connect to a UK VPN to "trick" the internet into thinking you are there.
