Conor McGregor wasn't the only one who had a rough night at UFC 257 on Saturday evening.

While McGregor suffered an upset loss to Dustin Poirier, ESPN had major issues with its streaming platform. Thousands of people took to social media to complain about the problematic streaming event on Saturday night.

ESPN eventually released a statement on the problems.

“We are aware of an issue impacting some fans’ ability to access to tonight’s PPV event and are working to resolve it as quickly as possible,” ESPN said in a statement, per The Athletic's Richard Deitsch.

ESPN appeared to fix the problem for most fans, though many were still frustrated with the stream. Houston Texans star pass rusher J.J. Watt was among those who took to social media to complain about the event.

Watt eventually got his stream working and appeared to enjoy the night, at least.

McGregor, meanwhile, announced his next steps on social media.

"Thanks for the support everyone! Was not my night/morning in there but a great contest to improve on. I’m excited at the blockbuster trilogy I now have on my hands. Dustin is a hell of a competitor and I look forward to going again. God bless us all, happy Sunday," he wrote.
