UFC is absolutely massive and the recent Mayweather v McGregor fight has only increased its popularity.
Saturday, November 4th is going to see two of the biggest brawlers in UFC go head-to-head in a fight unlike anything else and fortunately if you’re the proud owner of a Kodi device you can watch this epic UFC middleweight battle-royale for free!
There’s definitely no love lost between these two and the rivalry has been heating up to be an explosive battle. Quite frankly, this fight has the chance to be a show-stealer if St-Pierre just tries to avoid Michael Bisping and win on points
Kodi is all about the add-ons & luckily for you, there is one for UFC, in fact, it was actually called UFC Finest earlier, but it’s now known as Planet MMA.

Very Important Step: Get a VPN
Before you install or use the recommended kodi add-ons, it is essential that you get aVPN. This will highly increase your chances of find a working stream. There are a couple of reasons to use a VPN but two of the biggest are:
- Security – VPNs create a tunnel between your device and the server that is streaming the content you are interested in. This tunnel blocks any outside observers from monitoring your activity and with the recent rulings that allows ISPs to block Kodi streams of sports matches, this is your only safe way of ensuring you are protected and your stream won’t be blocked. A secure VPN will also help you not get a DMCA or copyright infringement notice from your ISP or copyright protection agencies.
- Geolocation – UFC has a massive following around the world, but it is only aired in certain countries and only on certain channels which are often not available globally. This means that unless you live in one of those countries, you’re pretty much out of luck and will be unable to view the fight regardless of the add-on you’re using. The only way around this block is to ensure that you are viewing the content with a VPN as the VPN can mask your location making it seem like you’re in a different country.
We recommend IPVanish to all of our readers – not only is it extremely easy to setup and configure, it won’t slow down your streaming experience at all. Even better –we’ve arranged an EXCLUSIVE deal with Ipvanish to give our readers 20% discount. Just click on this link

Setting up Planet MMA on Kodi
Planet MMA is really easy to setup and install on your Kodi. Here are the basic instructions that you will need to follow:
Step 1 – Ares Repository
I’ve talked about this before but as a reminder, with Kodi there are two steps whenever you install a new add-on. The first is finding the repository and the second is installing the file itself from the zip file stored in the repository. For Planet MMA you need to install the Ares repository.
- Launch Kodi and go to system > file manager and then select add source and tap the “none”
- On the next screen enter – http://ares-repo.eu/ and then give it the name “ares” so that you can find it easily later and click on
- On the home screen, go to the addons section and click on install from zip file and select the ares folder that we had previously created.
- Select the zip file and wait for the add-on installed notification to appear on your screen.
- Go back one step and then select install from repository and select ares project. Go to program add-ons and select ares wizard and then click on the install button and once again wait for the installation complete notification to appear.
Step 2 – Installing Planet MMA
Now that you’ve installed the repository, the next step is to install the add-on.
- Go to add-ons and click on ares wizard to launch it and then click on browse add-ons on the Ares Wizard home screen.
- Select video addons and then choose planet mma from the list of available add-ons. Click on install and then wait for it to download and install.
