The UFC Will Offer Refunds For Those Who Couldn’t Watch Mayweather vs McGregor

The UFC Will Offer Refunds For Those Who Couldn’t Watch Mayweather vs McGregor


It was to be the biggest fight of the century. MMA’s double-belt poster boy strutting into the Octagon against Floyd Mayweather, the king of boxing. It was a fight that you could throw in “record-breaking” before anything you said about it and you could be right. There was one big problem though, a ton of people were not able to see it. Those that heeded the usual warning to buy early may have been on the right track. Floods of messages, tweets, and e-mails came crashing into UFC, Showtime, and the spectator’s cable providers about not being able to order or having their feed crash. Today, the UFC is trying to make it up to customers by offering full refunds.

“We always try to put on the biggest and most exciting fights. We want our fans to have the best experience when watching our events. Unfortunately, we didn’t deliver the way we wanted on Saturday because of NeuLion’s technical issues on UFC.tv. As usual, we always take care of our fans and we will fix this. We have started processing refunds immediately for anyone who could not access the fight after purchase.”
Offering refunds was a good move by the UFC, considering Oregon customers have already filed class action lawsuits. Even UFC fighters themselves were tweeting on Saturday night that they weren’t able to access the fight or the stream crashed on them. It’s no surprise learning that an estimated 2.9 million people illegally pirated Mayweather vs McGregor. It’s hard to remember a fight that caused so many problems, it turns out May/Mac may have been even bigger than people thought.

F <"k You: Dana White to Jason Aldean

mmamania.com:   Dana White slams Jason Aldean for blowing off UFC 216 invitation - ‘F*ck you, stay out of Las Vegas’
Last weekend, a madman opened fire from he 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada at unsuspecting concert-goers who were enjoying some of Jason Aldean’s greatest hits, killing over 50 people and injuring nearly 500 more.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) did its part to honor victims, families and first responders who were all affected by the horrific event, donating $1 million to the cause and hosting over 1,500 of those people at last night’s (Sat., Oct. 7, 2017) UFC 216 event in “Sin City.”
UFC president Dana White, though, wanted Aldean to perform the National Anthem at the event, but was denied by the country music singer’s management, citing that Jason was shook up by the shooting and wasn’t sure if he’d be performing live anytime soon, if ever. However, Aldean did perform, but not at UFC 216, but on Saturday Night Live in New York…

Boxer kisses Boxer!

Boxer kisses her opponent during very intimate faceoff By Michael Blaustein, NY Times October 16, 2017 | 3:46pm
Boxing faceoffs are all about mind games. Fighters try to look intimidating, they talk trash, and they get up in each other’s grills all in the name of mind games. Swedish professional boxer Mikaela Laurén took the theatrics to a whole other place during a press conference on Monday when she stood toe-to-toe with undefeated champion Cecilia Braekhus. As cameras clicked away, Lauren approached Braekhus, stared deeply into her eyes and planted a kiss on her lips. At first, Braekhus reacted in horror and half slapped, half pushed Laurén away. But Braekhus soon started laughing at the absurdity of it all. “I haven’t got that in a while,” Braekhus joked as Lauren exited stage left.

Thirty-six-year-old welterweight Braekhus (31-0) is the pound-for-pound queen of Norwegian boxing and currently holds the female WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO titles. She will fight 41-year-old Laurén (29-4)…
