The UFC 257 main card was stacked but it seemed that many stars were unable to stream the fights
The undefeated star brought in someone else from outside the bubble, cut his wrist band and even got a bag dropped off.

Stars unhappy with UFC
UFC 257 is a PPV and most have to pay to watch the show. Of course, there are TV channels broadcasting the event but streaming UFC fights is one great way to ensure you get to see and pay only for the fights and cards you want to.
However, there seemed to be a bit of a problem in the stream of UFC 257. It just wasn’t starting and many stars blasted the UFC for all of this.
The steam is shown on a lot of different websites but the UFC has one and so does ESPN.
Ian Heinisch was visibly upset with all this and spoke about starting illegal steams.
It is unlikely he would do that but this was a shot at Dana White as he claimed he would take down illegal streamers.
Lauren Murphy highlighted that the stream just wasn’t working on any device:
Max Griffin also tagged Dana White as he wasn’t able to stream UFC 257.
Julian Marquez also posted a photo of the error message he was getting trying to stream the fights:
Marion Reneau was more vocal with her anger and took a shot at ESPN too:
Derek Brunson, however, believed that ESPN didn’t think they could get these many hits on their site:
