I heard the NFL had a big hand in that. The FBI might do it for the NFL, but not the UFC. Sorry, Dana.

Since the events start at 3am for me I rarely watch them live, but when i do i buy them for the superior quality.

But most of the time, I'll just find a HD rip the second i wake up on sunday morning, then it takes me 30-40 minutes to download the entire thing. All i need to do is avoid spoilerish forums like this one until then

Honestly though, i think piracy has helped the UFC far more than it has hurt them. I got into the UFC through a torrent

I would say the UFC is paying the FBI to help them crack down on it. I imagine they are well short of funding these days!

Man the FBI should really be focusing on crimes that matter. Piracy has been around forever, and honestly its just as easy to access shit as it always been.

Btw what are you gonna do arrest 1000s and 1000s of people and not expect backlash from it? I can understand going after the guy who does the stream, but anyone viewing it will never happen.

This all day long, i don't justify stealing their product but there are a LOT of fans who can't buy themselves a PPV for whatever reasons and became a fan through the internet.

Hell, i got into MMA thanks to the internet.

Yea I agree, can't believe people waste time trying to catch these people. Literally all of the people involved with the UFC are absolutely minted right now, the FBI should be interested in far more important matters.

Watching internet streams keeps the casual user interested in the UFC, when Joe Silva gets of his ass and provides a decent card I'm sure a good portion of those people would buy a PPV if it featured good fights/favourite fighters.

How they can expect people to afford every single UFC PPV is beyond me. Quite frankly I would be bored of the UFC by now if I had to wait months before I could afford to buy another PPV, there is a long enough wait between some events as it is! Dana should be grateful people go out of their way to provide such comodities! (grr angry rant over..)

Any minute now...Dana's totem will stop spinning, he will wake up to reality and he will realise: YOU CAN'T STOP THE INTERNET!
