Back in 2017, UFC superstar Conor McGregor made his big professional boxing debut. The Irish native pulled together the attention of most of the combat sports world as he made his way to the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. on Aug. 26 to face undefeated boxing legend Floyd Mayweather Jr. inside the squared circle.
The highly anticipated boxing match became one of the biggest pay-per-view events in the sport’s history, offering both competitors massive paydays. In the end, “Money” Mayweather earned a TKO victory over his opponent in the tenth round.
The popularity of the pay-per-view lead to a few disgruntled fight fans, however. The PPV was being offered through the UFC’s streaming service UFC Fight Pass.
But, the service crashed for a mass of viewers, leaving fans unable to watch the exciting night of fights. Fight fan Cameron Park would go on to start a class-action lawsuit back in October, claiming the UFC and Neulion violated state consumer protection laws.
The settlement will soon reach final approval, as it is set to undergo a comment period and a fairness hearing on July 20. Fans that missed out on five minutes or more of the PPV’s main event will receive a total refund of $99.99.
Fans that missed than five minutes of the main event will receive $50. A total of $25 will be offered to those that missed preliminary bouts.
