Many are anxiously awaiting the return of COnor McGregor at UFC 257 on Jan. 23, 2021, but not everyone is willing to pay for it.
Especially since ESPN recently raised the prices to $69.99 for all PPV events.
So it’s very common for people to seek illegal streams online in order to watch events free of charge.
But UFC president Dana White has issued a warning to those who host illegal streams for millions to view, saying that he has a surprise for them in 2021, warning a bragging fan on social media who said he would pirate the event.
He then went on to explain to the media what he meant.
“We’ve been one of the leagues that has been so proactive on piracy,” White said in an interview with TheMacLife. “I love how cool and tough these guys act on social media because – let me tell you what, we’ve caught a lot of people. Let me tell you what they do: They cry. They cry, and they beg not to be prosecuted and all this other stuff,” said White before revealing the promotion recently overcame a big hurdle in its never-ending fight against illegal streaming.
“We just overcame a huge hurdle in the piracy world, and we’re going to catch some of these guys in 2021, and I look forward to the crying and the begging,” he continued. “We’ll see how tough they are when they get caught.”
