I just read that online.  Does this mean that bars will not have it?

Appears commercial selling of PPV's will remain the same. So bar business for it will remain the same it seems. Also, from what reporters are saying on twitter, PPV price will drop 5 dollars as well through ESPN+. For the most part now, if you want to watch any UFC fights in a timely manner, you have to do it through ESPN+.

I will say this, it doesn't say exactly what the resolution for bars will be. It just says the "UFC will continue to sell its ppv events to commercial establishments." 

If they are selling it to bars through ESPN+ they really better have a quality stream and the bar better have great WIFI or that could be a disaster.

Also, while the PPV price is going down 5 bucks, since you are paying for the ESPN+ service monthly I guess it's a wash really. But better then paying 5 bucks and the previous ppv price.
