It might only be a small consolation for fans who purchased the Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor fight on pay-per-view over UFC.tv and didn’t get the product, but the UFC announced on Tuesday the company will refund fans’ money.

There were several reports on Saturday night about fans having trouble accessing the pay-per-view, both online and through the cable system, which ultimately led to a delay in the start time on what proved to be Mayweather’s 10th-round TKO victory in Las Vegas.

On Monday, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Showtime, the events’ PPV distributor. Tuesday, the UFC announced over Twitter it would begin processing refund to those who ordered through UFC.tv.

You can read UFC president Dana White’s statement below:

“We always try to put on the biggest and most exciting fights. We want our fans to have the best experience when watching our events. Unfortunately, we didn’t deliver the way we wanted on Saturday because of NeuLion’s technical issues on UFC.tv. As usual, we always take care of our fans and we will fix this. We have started processing refunds immediately for anyone who could not access the fight after purchase.”
