UFC president Dana White has been on a campaign to slow down the piracy of his UFC Pay-Per-View events since the beginning of this year.
With what started as a response from White to an alleged pirate in Instagram comments, has now turned into what seems to be a mini war between him and this community of internet users.
Recently in an interview with The Mac Life, White warned pirates that he was coming for them this year, and that he had new things in store to try and catch some of them.
Today at the UFC 257: Poirier vs. McGregor II pre-fight press conference, White was asked by media if he had any regrets about going public with trying to slow down the piracy of his events, to which he doubled down and used that as an opportunity to provide a new update on the situation.
“I’m glad you asked me about that, because we got one,” White said. “We got him. We’re watching this guy right now. All you gotta do is turn it on Saturday, and we got you f*cker. I can’t wait. Turn it on on Saturday streamers and see what happens. Thank you for asking me that question.”
White said in another interview with BT Sport which followed the press conference, that he will go through with prosecuting the illegal streamer if they put up the event on Saturday.
“He pops this link up on Saturday, we got him,” White said. “And we will arrest him, and I will prosecute him. I will not be nice. I will not give him any leniency what so ever. I will go guns f*cking blazing on this guy.”
