According to The Verge, it appears that the vast majority of people who actually watched their first fight tuned in illegally, opting to take advantage of pirate streams on platforms like Twitch and Periscope, instead of paying to watch the action via the official channels − YouTube and the website.

While the official stream reportedly brought in around 773,000 viewers, more than a million people are said to have tuned in via Twitch alone.
