Here's Why the UFC Is Offering Refunds for Their Broadcast of the Mayweather-McGregor Fight

Saturday's fight between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor was one of the biggest sporting events in recent memory, but some people had trouble viewing the fight due to issues with the pay-per-view broadcast, which cost $99.95 for the HD version.

As a result, the UFC has announced that it will issue refunds for fans who paid to watch the fight but were unable to due to technical issues.

"We always try to put on the biggest and most exciting fights," UFC President Dana White said in a statement on Twitter. "We want our fans to have the best experience when watching our events. Unfortunately, we didn't deliver the way we wanted to on Saturday because of NeuLion's technical issues on UFC.TV. As usual, we always take care of our fans and will fix this. We have started processing refunds immediately for anyone that could not access the fight after purchase."

The event was initially delayed due to reports of technical difficulties, which occurred on both the Showtime and UFC apps, Sports Illustrated reports.

Mayweather claimed a victory over McGregor with a 10th round technical knock-out.
