Associate Professor of Economics Paul Gift, PhD, writes in Forbes about the UFC's Mayweather-McGregor Class-Action Lawsuits that occurred after pay-per-view (PPV) outages. The event was set up as a traditional Showtime PPV, while also available for streaming through ShowtimePPV.com, UFC.tv, Sling TV, and PlayStation 4. Throughout the night, crash reports, login problems, and disconnections plagued the event in the news and on social media, spurring a handful of class action lawsuits. Dr. Gift covers the extent of the outages and the amount of content missed by viewers, as well as the current status of MayMac suits.
