Mayweather vs. McGregor Fight

February 2018: A federal judge granted preliminary approval of a proposed settlement agreement that would resolve the remaining three lawsuits against Showtime (Daas, Park, and Riley). According to the settlement terms, class members may receive refunds ranging from $25 to $99.99, the amount depending on how much of the fight they were unable to watch due to streaming disruptions. The agreement also provides class members with reimbursement for other expenses spent in anticipation of streaming the fight (e.g., food and beverages purchased to consume while viewing the event). Class members who spent up to $30 may receive one month of free access to UFC Fight Pass while class members who spent more than $30 may choose to receive either three months of free access to UFC Fight Pass or $5 in cash. (Class members seeking reimbursement for more than $30 of expenses must have proof of purchase.) A final fairness hearing is scheduled for July 20, 2018.
