UFC Stream Not Working: ESPN responds to UFC 257 Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier 2 Live stream inaccessibility following technical issues.
Dana White has had egg on his face following technical issues in the ESPN+ streaming service, preventing many from enjoying the pay per view. Social Media has been flooded with complaints regarding the pay per view and how they were unable to access the app.
The UFC president had earlier claimed that they were going to come down heavily on illegal streamers. Unfortunately, the only way to legally stream the pay per view suffered from an outage. This meant that there was no legal way to watch the pay per view.

The issues have since resolved. Not many however, will be pleased at forking out 70 dollars for a pay per view they couldn’t enjoy from start to finish. The only consolation in all of this is that the issue did not creep up during the much awaited main event rematch between Conor McGregor and Dustin Poirier.
