Showtime delays main event due to pay-per-view issues

Floyd Mayweather Conor McGregor

The Conor McGregor-Floyd Mayweather fight was expected to get underway shortly after 11 p.m. EST Saturday. It was expected that the undercard would take a good chunk of time — but no one expected quite the delay that’s unfolded.

Showtime, the official television broadcaster, has pushed back the start of the main event following outages and other streaming service issues.

Reporters in Las Vegas stated they’ve been told the fighters will come out to the ring at approximately 12:15 a.m. EST, with the fight beginning shortly thereafter.

Viewers have voiced their complaints with broadcasters on social media. Many people who paid for the fight have not been able to view it. UFC Fight Pass in particular, which offered a package for $100, has drawn the wrath of viewers.
