Here is a script to pull M3u8 from UFC.TV videos. You can stream ufc 202.
Script is in Python3
#!/usr/bin/env python3
  A simple little script for getting at the m3u8 for videos
  For free and ethical stream viewing free from proprietary players
  Doesn’t circumvent geo-blocks or login requirements
  You can get around the geo blocks via DNS proxies
  I have this saved as ufctv in a bin dir on my $PATH, so I can call it from wherever
  To login, run: ufctv login
  That will begin an interactive login prompt
  The login details themselves aren’t saved, just the cookies for the session
  And the active session is reset any time you login with the “Keep Me Signed In” box anywhere else
  To get a video’s m3u8: ufctv m3u8 $UFCTV-URL
  So for example if I want to go back and watch Belfort vs Hendo 3
  % ufctv m3u8
  From there you an do what you wish with the m3u8!
  You may wish to pipe the result direct to mpv (which lets you seek around and switch between qualities)
  % ufctv m3u8 | xargs mpv
  Or start ripping with livestreamer
  % ufctv m3u8 | xargs -I M3U8 livestreamer hlsvariant://M3U8 best -o belf-vs-hend.ts
  You can also rip the stream with ffmpeg, though I’ve found livestreamer does it a bit cleaner
  You may also wish to expand the program to add commands to do this for you instead of via shell piping
