AJ Lester, a Twitch streamer who has more than doubled his follower count after a tweet of him went viral, was broadcasting a pay-per-view UFC fight on his twitch channel by pretending to play the UFC game.
Placing himself in the corner and holding up a controller, Lester did a running commentary to pretend he was controlling one of the fighters, and has not been contacted by Twitch of the UFC regarding the broadcast. He has since removed the VOD of the stream, but he seems to have gotten away with it for now.
