Here’s everything you need to know to live stream and how to watch UFC Fight Night Denver Fox 23, the first Fight Night in 2017.

Watch UFC Fight Night Denver Main Card: Fox
The Main Card featuring the Shevchenko v Peña fight kicks off at 8pm ET / 5pm PT. You can watch UFC Fight Night Denver’s Main Card, the first UFC Fight Night of 2017 in two ways without cable.
- Sling TV Blue Package: the same live streaming option that gives you the prelim fights, may also give you the main event. With its 20+ channels, Sling TV Blue gives you access to cable networks, including Fox Sports 1 and in some cases, the Fox broadcast channel. The big catch here is that the local Fox channel is only available in select markets, including: Atlanta, Austin, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas/Fort Worth, Detroit, Gainesville, Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis/Saint Paul, New York City, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Francisco/Oakland, Tampa/Saint Petersburg, Washington DC. If you live in one of these cities then you can stream the fight. The great thing about Sling is that if you’re new to Sling, they’re offering a 7-day free trial. That means you can stream the fight for free tonight if you don’t have Sling. After that, it’s $25 per month for the Blue package.
- Digital Antenna. A digital antenna is a great option if you don’t live in one of the areas where you can stream the Fox channel on Sling TV. A relatively inexpensive digital antenna will allow you to watch the Valentina Shevchenko vs. Julianna Peña Main Card in HD for free.
