Twitch streamer broadcasts UFC show live pretending its a video game

So, UFC 3 isn't on PC so we don't really have much of a remit to cover this story, BUT it is fantastic.

Streamer AJ Lester broadcasted an entire pay-per-view UFC fight on Twitch by pretending that he was playing the video game UFC 3.

The personality sat there with a controller as mixed martial arts fighters Max Holloway and Jose Aldo went at it, even going as far as to criticise himself for not blocking an attack.

The footage has since been deleted, with Lester saying in a subsequent stream that EA, UFC or Twitch have not been in contact with him. That said, it is entirely possible Lester is in for a whole world of pain given that pay-per-view television content is highly protected by network providers. 

UFC 3 is launching via EA for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next year.
