    Dana made like $200mil. He doesn't care anymore. They got bigger fish to fry like USADA and Fighter's Untion.

    Seems to have worked. There are no pirates in the current UFC roster.

    Streamers are becoming more and more of a minority to be honest.

    More and more people are actual going the legal route now if prices are reasonable.

    Im guessing UFC see the fight pass subscription numbers and people are joining the service.



    five years ago they said torrents would destroy the tv industry, now netflix, amazon have more subscribers than ever and the biggest torrent search site has closed its doors.

    granted, there are still people using things like showbox, exodus, etc, but more and more people are paying




    honestly, £5.99 a month for Fight Pass, £5 a month for BT Sport, its not even worth the hassle of trying to find a stream anymore when you can go legal for next to nowt.

    The current lineup of champions could do the trick.

    They're still cracking skulls on youtube and twitter. Hard for ZP to post gifs.

    As for streaming, those matches tend to be on UK tv not PPV. So I guess it's not stealing per se.

    I've never found a good stream. So I end up going to bars and in very rare cases I'll buy.
