how does the ufc expect to match #'s with the NFL and NBA if it costs 60 bucks to watch an event on a tv set? I always hear Dana comparing the UFC to the NFL and NBA but you don't have to pay 60 bucks to watch the Super Bowl or the Final Series.

What anti-piracy sherdoggers don't understand is that it is ultimately not about "let me steal because if I copy my car and you take it, I still have my car", although many pro-piracy sherdoggers argue in that fashion. It's about realism. Zuffa and the UFC can't stop piracy of their product, and suing individuals will get them nowhere. Take down a stream and ten more appear for the next event. An extreme would be if they took down all streams, but then they'd still have to deal with torrents. Pirates are so far ahead of these companies, it's ridiculous. The best option for Zuffa is to admit defeat and adapt, and time will force them to do so.

That was pretty good. I also remember dana coming on the UG years ago and asking for sites to watch the pride events. Pot call the kettle black much?

If they gave me all the pay per views for the monthly fight pass fee I'd be all in no question.

Dana White is becoming the new Lars Ulrich.

The only difference is most Metallica fans actually once like the douche...

Exactly. The people who stream and then rationalize it (the cards are watered down, I can't afford it, I hate Dana White) for whatever pathetic reason and then bitch about fighter salaries are clueless morons.

I don't think the UFC will win this battle, but I can't blame them for trying to protect this revenue stream as long as they can.

Do you have a link to this as I hadn't heard about it and would be interested to read actual evidence. Most people who rip on Dana don't actually use facts...

Dana is what he hates about everyone he ever mentions.

I'd have to search for him actually asking on the UG but I know he did. He admits to watching mirko vs wand 2 on the internet on the infamous back and forth rant between him and jerry millen on Scott ferrells radio show.
