Dana White began 2021 with a warning to those who contest online broadcasts of the UFC. The chairman of the UFC said without saying anything special that he had a “surprise” for those involved in such activities.
White recently spoke to The Mac Life to double its fight against online piracy.
“We’ve been one of the leagues that have been so active on piracy,” White said. “I love how calm and strict these people act on social media because I tell you, we’ve caught a lot of people. Let me tell you what they do: They cry. They cry And they are not begged.
“We have just crossed a major hurdle in the world of piracy and we are going to catch some of these people in 2021. And I look forward to crying and begging. We will see how strict they are when caught. “
Apart from the unauthorized distribution of his product, White’s other major concern is to give personal information to people, only to be scammed and stolen.
“So if you go through my Instagram and go through all the comments, a guy is saying ‘If you want to do a fight this weekend, call me DM.” He steals people’s information, ”White said. “People who are DMing him steal his information.
“He is taking your money from your bank and he is charging your credit card. These people are f-king crook criminals.
“They are all never going away. They are going there, and we are not trying to get rid of them all. I just want to grab something. This is what I am looking for. You cannot stop the whole thing, that the piracy industry will go on forever. Let me grab something and see what happens – and I will, oh it’s coming. “
The UFC can expect more cases of piracy this year, especially ESPN has decided to raise PPV prices to $ 69.99. These new rates will start from UFC 257.
