UFC President Dana White released a statement on Tuesday evening regarding the issues surrounding those who ordered the Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather fight through the UFC app.
The Statement reads…
We always try to put on the biggest and most exciting fights. We want our own fans to have the best experience when watching our events. Unfortunately we didn’t deliver the way we wanted to on Saturday because of NeuLion’s technical issues on UFC.TV. As usual, we always take care of our fans and will fix this. We have started processing refunds immediately for anyone that could not access the fight after purchase.
It is unknown how many exactly were effected by the issue utilizing the UFC.TV option, as other traditional cable and digital outlets suffered outages causing the delay of the main event by 20 minutes this past Saturday night. It is also unknown if the UFC, NeuLion, or potentially an insurance premium would pay out those unable to watch the “Money fight.”
