The UFC App
We couldn’t make a list like this without starting with the obvious one; The UFC app. Receive news and updates, check upcoming fights and their start times and look up stats on your favourite UFC stars all in one place. The UFC subscription service, Fight Pass, is also integrated into their app, allowing your to access the full UFC fight library, stream PPV’s and watch other linked promotions, such as Invicta FC and Glory Kickboxing. If you follow the UFC, the app should definitely be on your phone.
The ‘Bellator MMA’ App
Similar to the UFC app Bellator MMA provides news and information about all the fighters on their roster and the ability to stream events live on their phone. You can also go back through all of Bellator’s previous fights, to access results, highlights and another videos. Overall it’s a well rounded app that is perfect for any Bellator MMA fan.
Just like the MMAJunkie website their app provides you with the latest MMA news on the go, as and when you want them. Considering the MMAJunkie reporters have reporters at all the big MMA events you get fight reports, rumours about fighters and organisations and additional features on top fighters – while there are many MMA news websites out there, MMAJunkie are one of the best, and their app is a great go-to for anyone looking for MMA news.
If you’ve been an MMA fan for a while you’re definitely going to have heard of the MMA Underground. One of the biggest MMA discussion forums on the internet it’s had some big names posting on its boards in the past. Now it offers even more great content; another great source for the latest news and updates, records of all MMA fights and fighters and viral MMA videos all packaged into a well designed and easy to use app. If you haven’t already used the MMA Underground make sure you take advantage of their great app.
The biggest martial arts organisation you may have only just heard about, ONE Championship is massive across Asia and has recently starting hiring big names from western MMA and Muay Thai to fight for their organisation. Their app is the easiest way to access their fights, offering live notifications not just for their events but for individual fights, and another huge library of their previous cards and highlights. The only disappointing thing is that the app doesn’t currently support iPad compatibility, but you can still use the iPhone app on the larger screen.
Fill your phone with these five apps and we guarantee you’ll have all the latest news and the best highlight moments at your fingertips for the foreseeable future.
