What we have tonight is a decent card for a free televised event, with Mark Hunt vs. Frank Mir in the headlining spot and Hector Lombard vs. Neil Magny in the co-main slot. Other interesting fights tonight include Steve Bosse vs. James Te Huna, Seo Hee Ham vs. Bec Rawlings, Alan Jouban vs. Brendan O’Reilly, Rin Nakai vs. Leslie Smith, and Chad Laprise vs. Ross Pearson.
UFC Fight Night 85 begins at 7 PM ET on UFC Fight Pass with two preliminary fights, then the action shifts over to television for the remainder of the card with the prelims at 8 PM ET with four fights and the main card at 10 PM ET with six fights.
If you’re a cable cutter like me and you don’t have cable or satellite access, there is a way to bypass the UFC’s blackout of tonight’s event if you live in an area where the UFC has a television deal. With Unlocator, you can be configured and live streaming the fights that would otherwise be blacked out.
Unlocator works by making it look like you live somewhere in the world where the UFC has no television deals, allowing you to live stream tonight’s entire event through your Fight Pass account. Unlocator also works with Netflix to stream the libraries of other countries, or to access Hulu or Sling TV from outside the USA.
