Mayweather-McGregor will Be the most pirated Event Ever

August 15, 2017 at 7:03 am by Terez in Conor McGregor, Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Lawrence Epstein, the chief operating officer of the UFC, believes it will set another, more dubious, record, though: He believes it will be the most pirated pay-per-view event ever. “For Mayweather-McGregor, it’s going to be tens of millions of dollars [in stolen signal],” Epstein said. “There’s no doubt about it. This is going to be the most pirated event in pay-per-view history. I predict that.” Social media services such as Twitter and Facebook have now become an easy way for someone to share the signal, particularly with the advent of video-sharing services on those sites such as Facebook Live and Twitter’s Periscope. No surprise there, why pay when you don’t have to, especially for this circus.-TO
