How to watch Bellator 214: Fedor vs. Bader



Chris, a UK-born media connoisseur, is an expert in watching international TV. Known as "The Global Screen Wanderer", he has travelled extensively across the globe with long stints away from home. With over 10 years of experience he has become the go-to guru for streaming content from home and abroad.

Fedor vs Bader is one of the biggest MMA events of the year so far and if you want to watch all the action live this is the guide for you.

In this guide I’ll be showing you how you can watch the Russian take on the American in this Heavyweight Grand Prix Finale.

If you’re an MMA fan and you like watching the big guys slug it out then this is one not to miss. Bellator 214 will see either Russian Fedor Emelianenko or American Ryan Bader take the vacant heavyweight title.

If you’ve already searched the net to find a place to watch you’ll be inundated with sketchy illegal streams. There’s no need to risk these when you can watch an official stream for free and below I’ll show you how.

Step 1: Choose a VPN app

Although Bellator 214: Fedor vs Bader is being shown on expensive cable networks in most countries there are a few countries showing the event completely for free.

These are restricted to viewing from within their country but by using a VPN app you can unblock these official live streams of Bellator 214 and watch anywhere in the world.

The benefit of this is you get to watch a good quality stream of the fight without buffering and it’s a completely legal stream, not some sketchy website that will fill your device full of viruses.

For this you’ll need a VPN app. I recommend using ExpressVPN but there are a few others that work well. My top 3 VPN choices to watch Bellator 214 are:

  1. ExpressVPN – Highly recommended
  2. NordVPN
  3. VyprVPN

A VPN service will cost you a couple of dollars but it’s still much cheaper than going to Bellator 214 or even the PPV price charged by most networks.
