MMA streams are white whales in the sports pirating world. Most people aren’t looking for legal streams when they’re googling “MMA live streams.” Let’s be clear: If you’re looking for illegal streams of UFC events and pay-per-views, this is not the place.
Dana White has been adamant about going after people that are illegally streaming live UFC events.
“We’ve been working on piracy since day one. It’s one of the things we focused on. It’s an important thing to stop in this business, so we’ve spent tonnes of money on this stuff. We just got some real important legislature done on piracy this year.”Dana White on pirated UFC streams, ahead of McGregor vs Poirier 2
