The UFC has received mixed reaction since officially announcing the Fight Pass digital network a week ago in Las Vegas.
As with any new project – especially one the magnitude of Fight Pass – there have been glitches and kinks to work out along the way. But Saturday marked the true test for the product.
With UFC Fight Night 34 going down in Singapore during the wee hours of Saturday morning Stateside, a live event streamed on the digital network for the first time. For the early image for the value of Fight Pass, that marked a seminal moment.
Judging by the reactions on Twitter, user experiences ranged from glowingly positive to bitterly negative. However, when the event came to a close, it seemed the one constant was a quality stream, which may be the most important aspect of it all.
Fight Pass is likely to continue to evolve. But to see how the fighters, fans and media members from throughout the MMA community felt about the digital network’s live event, check out these Twitter reactions below.
