I imagine some on this board will be a little disappointed. Dana/Zuffa must be happy...

I don't fear it.
COme event time, everyone knows a link, and most during events talk.
New sites will come.

They simply cannot block the Internet.

And it might backfire.
I mean, remember how many people got mad at Metalica when they made those adds against piracy....

Besides, this is really dumb (for UFC).
Yes, they lose money... but do they? Most people streaming would not pay for the PPV.
Many people probably watch their first MMA fights via the Internet. And the sport is still growing, so there's little sense to get 10% of the streaming people now, but lose 90% of those who could become potential PPV buyers later.

I do understand for WWE. They are as stabblished as they will ever get.

but NFL? Seriously??? We get to watch this for free. what exactly are they losing????
