The Ultimate Fighting Championship is often credited with being the greatest stage for mixed martial arts. The organization operates with a dragon-esque avarice, hoarding its gold content away from free viewership. If you are too broke or causal to buy Fight Pass, the UFC’s host for content, and stand-up specials, then you have come to the right place. Don’t say MMASucka hasn’t done anything for you as we list the best free UFC fights on YouTube. Forewarning, not every country will have access to all videos due to licensing issues. Also, most of these are coming from the UFC’s Spanish channel, because that channel has way more free fights on it for some reason.

Number 5: Ferguson vs Barboza
Former lightweight contender Tony Ferguson (25-5) has had a rough go of it lately. If you love violence then Ferguson is someone that you should be a fan of. So why not relive his second or third best performance ever against the permanently dangerous Edson Barboza (21-9). Ferguson lives up to his boogeyman name as he chases Barboza around the cage attempting to inflict as much damage as he possibly can. The fight is fairly back and forth although the momentum is consistently held by the American. It has everything an MMA fan could want, reckless aggression, elbows, blood, spinning techniques, and strangulation. Get your violence fix with Ferguson vs Barboza.
Number 4: Johnson vs Gaethje
While we are on the topic of infinite violence let’s continue this ride by discussing the debut of one of the most chaotic individuals in the Lightweight division. Justin Gaethje (22-3) vs Michael Johnson (19-16) is everything anyone could ask for in an MMA fight. Namely lots of punches and kicks being thrown. Both men put their bodies on the line for the victory, and unfortunately for Johnson, he was unable to eat his feces that day. Instead, Gaethje forced him to face an onslaught. The fight is utter madness and is completely free on YouTube right now.
Number 3: Cejudo vs Moraes
Henry Cejudo (16-2) vs Marlon Moraes (23-8-1) was one of the most unexpected title fights in recent history. Both men had done enough to secure their spot. Moraes beat 4 contenders in a row, three of them by KO in the first round. Cejudo just came off a victory against TJ Dillashaw (16-4), former champion of bantamweight, for the flyweight title before moving up to challenge for the bantamweight title. Dillashaw had fallen on the battlefield of public expectation and tested positive for EPO, a performance-enhancing drug.
While the circumstances around the fight were bizarre, to say the least, the fight itself is a banger. Moraes showed why he was such a dangerous contender and Cejudo displayed what it means to have the heart of a champion. Both men put their health on the line and deliver one of the most amazing performances you will ever see. If you are a fan of technical wars, this is the fight for you.
Number 2: Luque vs Barberena
Vicente Luque (19-7-1) and Bryan Barberena (15-7) put on one of the most underrated performances in UFC history. Barberena is best known for strangling Sage Northcutt (11-3) while Luque is most known for permanently altering Mike Perry’s (14-7) face. Both welterweights put their health on the line to bring one of the most dynamic and exciting fights you could ever see. The fight has everything an MMA fan could want, and by everything I mean lots of punches. Like a lot of punches. Both men are chin checked frequently in this chaotic ballet of violence. Probably the first time someone has compared Barberena with ballet but it’s deserved in this instance. So, do yourself a favor and check out this cult classic in violence.
Number 1: Jose Aldo vs Chad Mendes 2
Now I would probably be asked to turn in my MMA hipster license if this fight wasn’t at the number one spot. Jose Aldo (29-7) and Chad Mendes (18-5) put on a display of violence unlike much else. If you’re a fan of feints, counter combinations, pivots, and amazing head movement this fight is for you. Not only that but one gets to see the best counter-wrestler take on a legitimate division one athlete. Honestly, if you have not seen this fight you are obligated to watch some of the best Mixed Martial Arts you might ever see. Mendes took it to the reigning champion in a way few had seen since Aldo fought Mark Hominick (20-12). Both men took years off their careers and lifespans in a blood and guts battle. Mendes puts in a performance that proves he’s probably the best competitor to have never won a UFC title. If you have a free half an hour then you owe it to yourself to watch this all-time classic.
