UFC Fight Pass is a subscription-based video streaming service owned by the mixed martial arts promotion Ultimate Fighting Championship. The UFC Fight Pass showcases live UFC, MMA, submission grappling, kickboxing, boxing and Thai boxing events plus a 24-hour linear streaming channel and on-demand programming from a library of over 16,000 fights from over 35 promotions. Fight Pass launched in December 2013 with UFC president Dana White saying it would become "Netflix for fight fans."

In March 2014 the libraries of PRIDE FC, WEC, Strikeforce, Affliction, WFA and EliteXC were added to the FIGHT PASS Library. In September 2014 Invicta FC began live-streaming events on Fight Pass and over the next three years over a dozen promotions from MMA, kickboxing, grappling and boxing have live-steamed events on the Fight Pass service.

UFC Fight Pass claims to have over 16,000 historical fights available 24-7, including the libraries of PRIDE FC, WEC, Strikeforce, Affliction, WFA and EliteXC, Invicta FC, King of the Cage, Pancrase, Shooto and UCMMA [7]

As of 2016, viewers worldwide can access live UFC fights and fight replays on their subscription network UFC Fight Pass at a cost of $7.99–$9.99 USD per month via devices like Apple TV, iPhone, Android, Xbox, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Chromecast[8].

Although subscription sites experience quite a bit of what is known in the industry as "churn" (constant fluctuations in the number of total subscribers), UFC Fight Pass is believed to have approximately 450,000 subscribers globally.[9]
