Usually when you try and stream PPV events on Twitch, you get taken down immediately. Well one clever guy bypassed this rule by pretending to play the PPV as a video game.
With EA Sports UFC 3 out next year, Twitch streamer Lester_Gaming used this opportunity to broadcast the actual UFC 218 PPV by pretending to “play” it.
You can check more about this in the Twitter post down below. The tweet is slowing getting viral, so this might be the first and only time Lester_Gaming will be able to get away with a stunt like this.
Twitch will probably be more eagle eyed from now on and check if its users are actually playing video games and not streaming PPV events illegally.
