This is a nice gesture by the UFC, and the proper thing to do. But they’re not the only ones dealing with fallout from streaming problems. A fan has filed a class-action suit against Showtime over the poor quality of the stream for the pay-per-view bout.
The amount of buys for the fight has not been publicized yet, but UFC boss Dana White had said prior to the event that the fight was tracking to be a record-setter.
