Rounding out the PPV. is ‘Jéssica Andrade vs. Yan Xiaonan’, ‘Movsar Evloev vs. Diego Lopes’, and Kron Gracie returning to take on Charles Jourdain.
Our Bloody Elbow expert fight analysts, Zane Simon and his cohort, Eddie Mercado will be throwing hot takes, possible next fights, results and reactions to the overall event out at you, immediately after the main event concludes, in our Live Stream 6th Round Post-Fight Show on the Bloody Elbow YouTube Channel.
The UFC 288 Main PPV (Pay-Per-View) card begins on Saturday, May 6th., at 10/7PM ETPT on ESPN+ PPV. Our Live Stream PBP ‘Watch Party’ will start on the BE YT around 7/4PM ETPT, so we can cover some Featured Prelims and get fired up for the main card to come.
We approximate this start time, and will update the Live Stream posts here and on YT throughout the event for you. We will have a ‘leniently moderated’ Live Chat for our YT Channel subscribers during the show as well.
Man, I Can’t Make It Saturday Night
Don’t sweat it, we’ve got you covered. On Sunday, May 7th., we will additionally be broadcasting an AUDIO version of the show on our BloodyElbowPodcast.Substack.com page; which will go out to our entire Bloody Elbow Podcast Network. And the live rebroadcast will remain up on the Bloody Elbow YouTube Channel for you to catch the video (as well as the replay of the Live Chat) on Sunday, as well.
While the actual UFC 288 ESPN+ PPV itself would set you back $79.99 for current ESPN+ subscribers. New subscribers are offered a bundle price of $124.98 for the PPV with an annual subscription to ESPN+ (with the monthly ESPN+ option running $9.99 a month vs. $99.99 a year).
In addition to those whopping rates, they are also trying to entice you with the Disney+/Hulu/ESPN+ “Bundle Deal”; the ad-supported version of that package is precisely $13.99… no-ads drives it up to $19.99, that’s monthly.
HOWEVER — FORGET ALL THAT NONSENSE…
