Mayweather-McGregor Live Stream Suit Settled
Following massive issues with the live stream of 2017’s Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather fight, a class action lawsuit was brought against the UFC and its streaming partner NeuLion.
On Tuesday, the UFC and NeuLion are near a settlement for any issues resulting from fans being unable to watch the event in its entirety.
The settlement, has met preliminary approval from a federal judge in Nevada, and will feature structured refunds to fans depending on how much of the event they were unable to watch due to technical difficulties.
Fans who missed over 5 minutes of the Mayweather vs. McGregor main event will get a full refund of the $99.99 purchase price, while those who missed less than 5 minutes of the main event will get $50, while those who missed only preliminary bouts will get $25.
Fans who also were out money for food and beverage bought for viewing parties will get a choice of one to three months of free access to UFC Fight Pass or a $5 payment.
The settlement will move toward final approval with a fairness hearing scheduled for July 20th.
