Earlier in the evening, the match had been delayed due to PPV issues.
ESPN Sports Business Reporter Darren Rovell tweeted out that he heard this could potentially be happening.
In another Tweet, Rovell added, "They had two years to figure this out after delaying Mayweather-Pacquiao for the same reasons. Couldn't get it done," referencing the same thing happening in 2015.
The UFC took to their official Twitter page to comment on the situation, writing, ".@UFCFightPass customers: Due to overwhelming traffic you may be experiencing log in issues. This will be resolved shortly."
Eventually, though, the fight got started with both men winning rounds and throwing hard punches.0comments
