Actually charging for it is more illegal then downloading it. The theroy behind downloading it is that im lending it to a friend. I have bought it and im sharimng charging for it is very illegal. But whatever.

If this were my forum I would honestly delete this thread and ban the poster who started it, because UFC is dogged in protecting it's product from copyright infringement. The person running this forum could be held liable if a case were brought up.

Just my honest opinion.

This idea is flawed. Why would I pay $4 for an illegal UFC download? If I'm going to download something illegally I can DL it from Usenet for free - and have it about two hours after the event, and not be out $4.

Why pay when it could be free?

In that case, they better delete every post linking to a MMA fight video....

Never heard of usenet before. I'll check it out. If your statement were true (which i HIGHLY doubt that it is), then I would certainly scratch my idea that I presented and do that.
You guys think I want to waste my time going thru all this trouble? hell no. I just want to watch the big events(within a relative short period after the fight, so as to reduce the chance of the fight getting spoiled) and not pay out of the rear.

The inherent problem is that you are so obviously trying to profit off someone else's product, which can be easily had for free by anyone with half an ounce of search ability. The video links are free, and nobody is trying to make money off them like you are. This just smells like some plan cooked up by a guy with no life & no money in order to allow him to pay for the PPV's & maybe get some extra beer money in the process. It's all very poorly executed and contrived, and stinks of self serving intents.

Don't be an asshole. I am not trying to make any damn money. I told you I would prove it. You think I am going to sign up enough people to get rich here? That is rediculous.

I watch all of the PPV at the local sports bar. It's free and they serve cold beer. Phone around and find one in your area. Of course, I guess you've got to look as if your at least 21 in the States or 18 up here.
