Thoresen vs. Mitchell was cut off with about 30 seconds left in the fight. The Facebook stream went from the fight to UFC broadcaster Jon Anik standing next to UFC bantamweight champ Dominick Cruz. They stood there in complete silence, unaware that the mistake had happened.
It was a funny site to see. The culprit was likely a delay in Thoresen vs. Mitchell fight caused by the doctor having to examine Thoresen's eye. This caused the broadcast to extend to 5 p.m.—the start time for the FX portion of the prelims.
That's probably why the fight was cut off so abruptly. The UFC should take precautions in the future, booking enough time for such delays.
There were also other minor production errors throughout the night. UFC president Dana White even tweeted about them, apologizing for the mistakes.
Furthermore, dozens of people tweeted about how they lost the broadcast when it went past its allotted time slot. Instead of seeing the conclusion of the Demetrious Johnson-John Dodson fight, they saw either a rerun of The Big Bang Theory or local news.
