Apart from the Interim Championship fight, we have a Bantamweight fight between Jose Aldo vs Pedro Munhoz. Also, we have an exciting match in our hands between Micheal Chiesa vs Vicente Luque.
In this guide, I will be discussing how to watch UFC 265 Lewis vs Gane on FireStick. I will be discussing both the premium method and the free method (recommended).
Important: If you’re likely watching a free method, make sure you first subscribe and install a VPN (such as Surfshark) to hide your IP address and online identity. Failing to do so will likely expose your IP address and you will face legal troubles.
The free method works from anywhere and on any device including FireStick. But for your own online protection, get yourself a VPN at an affordable price ($2.49/month)

UFC 265 Predictions
Derrick Lewis and Ciryl Gane will be fighting for the Interim Heavyweight Championship and that comes at a time when Francis Ngannou became champion 4 months ago.
There was another title fight between Amanda Nunes vs Pena but that was cancelled because Nunes caught COVID. Derrick Lewis is a powerful hitter but Ciryl Gane is an all-round fighter.
Ciryl Gane is undefeated and he’s coming off a win against JDS, but Derrick Lewis has 4 fight win streak as well so it will be a cracker of a match.
Even though Ciryl Gane will dominate Derrick Lewis everywhere, but we believe Derrick Lewis will put out Ciryl Gane in the 3rd round KO. In the co-main event, we believe Jose Aldo will TKO Pedro Munhoz in the 2nd Round.
This UFC 265 PPV will be a great event because it will be for the Interim Heavyweight Championship fight between Lewis vs Gane. We will also see if Jose Aldo will be able to win against Pedro Munhoz.
Also, we will finally see Micheal Chiesa back in action against the dangerous Vicente Luque. The fight will happen on August 7th, Saturday Night.
I have discussed both the free method and paid method so you can select anyone that you like. But if you’re viewing through the free method then get yourself a VPN (such as Surfshark) as it will keep your online identity private while streaming.
