Configuring the Addon
Fights on Demand works right out of the box with its default settings. But adjusting a few options can improve performance:
- Go to Tools > Cache Controls within the addon
- Clear both Function Cache and Image Cache
- Increase cache expiration to 60 days
- In Tools > Scraper Settings, disable underperforming scrapers
- Enable torrent scraping for higher quality links
- Enable parallel scraping in Tools > General
- Use 5 or more scraper threads
With caching optimized, scrapers configured, and multithreading enabled, you‘ll get faster streams and more reliable sources.
Addon Features and Usage
Now that it‘s set up, let‘s explore key features and how to use Fights on Demand:
- MMA Replays – Relive classic UFC fights or the latest Bellator events
- Wrestling Replays – Missed WWE Raw or AEW Dynamite? Catch up here
- Boxing Archives – Legends like Ali, Tyson, De La Hoya and more
- Fight Night – Links to tonight‘s scheduled live boxing and MMA cards
- Wrestling PPV – Get the biggest WWE and other wrestling pay-per-views
- MMA PPV – UFC numbered events and other MMA megacards
There are typically multiple links for any given event or fight:
- Torrents – 1080p quality from torrent scraping
- Direct streams – Typically 720p depending on source
- Acestream/Sopcast – Requires additional addon but high quality
- YouTube – Legal public domain fights or highlight clips
I recommend testing different links to find the best balance of quality and stability.
- Search – Find specific fights or fighters across all categories
- Account – Link Real-Debrid for premium filehosts
- Cache Controls – Clear caches and adjust expiration time
Take advantage of search and Real-Debrid integration to maximize the addon‘s potential.
With this arsenal of replays, current fights, tools and configurable settings, Fights on Demand provides an exceptional free portal into the world of combat sports streaming on Kodi!
Is It Legal? Streaming Responsibly
When using third-party addons like Fights on Demand, the legality question inevitably comes up. The addon itself is simply open-source software, which is perfectly legal. However, some of the streaming sources it pulls from could be unlicensed pirated content.
As a general rule, you should avoid streaming the following types of copyrighted content without permission:
- Pay-per-views – Events that normally require paid access
- Premium cable channels – HBO boxing, Showtime fights, etc.
- Latest theatrical releases – Brand new movies still in theaters
However, the addon also sources many legal public domain streams including:
- Past fights – Beyond standard copyright terms
- YouTube – Posted for public streaming access
- Promotional content – Free previews consented by content owners
When in doubt, its best to err on the side of caution and avoid any unauthorized copyrighted content. A VPN like IPVanish will keep your streaming activities private and secure.
Now let‘s look at some common issues and solutions.
|Add-on not installing||Double check Unknown Sources is enabled, re-enter source URL correctly.|
|Streams not loading||Clear caches in addon Tools menu, enable Real-Debrid account.|
|Error playing Acestream links||Ensure you have Ace Player or equivalent installed.|
|Can‘t find certain fight||Use addon search bar to search across all categories.|
|Buffering or lag||Try switching to a different stream link, enable multithreaded scraping.|
