HEADLINED BY THE meeting of Louis Smolka and Irish flyweight Paddy Holohan, UFC Fight Night 76 takes place this evening at Dublin’s 3Arena.

If you were unable to get your hands on a ticket, we want to make sure that you still don’t miss a second of the action from the 10 fights on the bill, so here’s all the essential viewing information you’ll need.

The good news is that the four fights on the main card will be available to watch live on free-to-air TV in Ireland. The bad news is that the six-bout preliminary card is only available on Fight Pass — the UFC’s online broadcast platform — which requires a subscription.

The prelims

There’s Irish interest in two of the six fights on the preliminary card, with Dublin duo Cathal Pendred and Aisling Daly both looking to return to winning ways.

The prelims will start at 6.15pm and they’re only available to watch on Access to Fight Pass costs €7.99 per month but you can opt to start a free seven-day trial which can be cancelled before you’re charged.
