There are two good reasons to go out to watch the UFC: pay TV is expensive and you can't get that electric crowd energy at home. That's why you should make tracks for these Sydney bars and pubs for the UFC 196, where American Nate Diaz is pitted against the crowd favourite, Irishman Conor McGregor.

Following an injury to Rafael dos Anjos, Diaz will step in as a replacement against McGregor for the Lightweight Championship. UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Holly Holm (yep, the one who kicked Ronda Rousey in the neck) will also be headlining the event and defending her title against Miesha Tate. Grab a beer and watch the big fight at these bars showing the UFC live and loud from the MGM Grand:

Sydney's best sports bars

When there’s a bite in the air that makes sitting in the garden a little too chilly for comfort, there’s no better way to spend an afternoon that posting up on one of the bar stools and watching the footy over a jug of beer and a Courty burger.

As one of the closest public bars to the SCG, this well-worn local is the next best thing to being at the game when the Swans are playing. Plus, once the full-time horn blows you can sit smugly on your bar stool while people try and cram into the pub to discuss the outcome over a schooner.

They love their sport so much at this Paddo/Woolahra borderlands hotel that we’ve seen them turn every seat in the house to face the big screen like it was a cinema, and they still post the televised sport schedule online so you never miss a match, whatever your code.

Dick's Hotel

This is a pub that’s sticking to its old-school guns. Inside you’ve got a hard-wearing, dark wooden bar, walls decked out in sports memorabilia, TVs tuned to the footy and stubby holders that you can buy on the spot. Over the massive beer garden there’s a huge domed roof protecting one half of the paved courtyard from inclement weather, and if you’ve got a faithful friend of the four-legged variety that’s AOK: dogs are welcome in the open-air section.
