Dana White spent the past month or so bragging about stopping illegal streamers from being able to watch his pay-per-view events, but it seems the legal viewers can’t even watch either.

ESPN+ had an outage Saturday evening right at the start of the UFC 257 card. To make matters worse, the card was a pay-per-view event on the exclusive ESPN streaming channel.

Many celebrities and fans took to Twitter to blast ESPN Plus about the outage:

Refunds will no doubt have to be issued, even after the stream is fixed. Too much has been missed already.

Saturday night’s UFC 257 features one of the sport’s most high-profile fighters in Conor McGregor taking on Dustin Poirier.
