Angry Mayweather-McGregor viewers voice complaints over streaming service failures

Floyd Mayweather conor Mcgregor

With an event as big as the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight Saturday night in Las Vegas, you’d expect every entity involved — especially the broadcasters — to be on its A game. Months of preparation were poured into this fight.

As the undercard began and proceeded, however, it became clear there were quite a few angry viewers out there. ESPN is reporting the fight has been delayed to account for broadcasting issues.

UFC Fight Pass caught the most heat. The streaming service, which cost $100, was overloaded. It couldn’t handle the influx, and many viewers were blocked from watching the fights.

Legendary ESPN broadcaster Dick Vitale went on a rant about his service — or the lack thereof — from Frontier.

Needless to say, there are going to be some refunds after this fight is over.
