UFC facing possible class-action lawsuit for failed Mayweather vs McGregor Fight Pass streams

Many fans who chose to buy the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Conor McGregor fight on UFC Fight Pass were met with sheer dissatisfaction on Saturday night. Because of the “overwhelming traffic” the site crashed multiple times, and even some fighters were not spared of the hassle.

The UFC and its streaming partner NeuLion have yet to specifically address the issue about giving a refund to those who paid $100 for the fight. But according to Phoenix Litigator Hart Robinovitch, a class-action lawsuit can actually be filed against the company.

“I’ve already spoken to one person who is frustrated about the situation,” Robinovitch told USA TODAY Sports. “The people who paid $100 and then bought food and beer had their night ruined. The main thing you have to consider is what are they going to do for these people?”

The main event was actually forced to be delayed due to “scattered outages” on several pay-per-view broadcasts, but the UFC Fight Pass stream crash was deemed as an isolated case since the root of the problem was being pointed to the app itself, which ran across different platforms.

Robinovitch adds that the lawsuit might be the only way for the people
