LAD Pretends To Play UFC Fight On Stream To Avoid Getting Copyrighted

LAD Pretends To Play UFC Fight On Stream To Avoid Getting Copyrighted

AJ Lester streamed the entire UFC 218 broadcast on Saturday night across multiple platforms, the most notable of which was Twitch.

In the United Kingdom, subscribing to BT Sport grants you access to Ultimate Fighting Championship events, however various other PPV models-not least the UFC Fight Pass-apply worldwide.

At the time of writing, the clip has been viewed over half a million times on twitch, and quickly went viral on Twitter.

Yesterday, AJ Lester returned to his regular Fortnite stream to acknowledge his newfound fame.

The "pretending to play a video game" thing is cute, and it's nearly certainly the reason this is making the rounds on social media. AJ Lester managed to dodge Twitch's moderation of illegally-broadcasting live sports events by pretending he was playing EA's UFC 3.

Lester isn't holding a controller at all in numerous clips.

UFC 218 was also the making of Francis "The Predator" Ngannou, who defeated Alistair Overeem in the first round with a thunderous left hook. In a follow-up stream, Lester spoke of the shock at his overnight blow-up, mentioning that so far he doesn't appear to have gotten into any trouble for the broadcast, which can have pretty serious ramifications.

UFC 3 launches on PS4 and Xbox One February 2, 2018.

We reached out to Twitch for comment but haven't heard back yet.
