  Dana White targets illegal streaming suspect before UFC 257, working with feds on bust With the help of federal authorities, the UFC is ready to drop the hammer on someone who could have plans to host an illegal stream of UFC 257.

ABU DHABI – Dana White doesn’t sound like he’s jumping at the opportunity to re-sign Paige VanZant after her UFC 251 loss Saturday. At the event’s post- fight news conference, MMA Junkie asked the UFC president if he wants to have VanZant (8-5 MMA, 5-4 UFC ) back under the promotion’s banner

“We got one. We got him,” White said during Thursday’s UFC 257 news conference. “We’re watching this guy right now. All you have to do is turn it on Saturday, and we got you, f*cker. I can’t wait. Turn it on Saturday, streamers, and see what happens.”

At the time, it was unclear what those words. Later in the day, White elaborated during an interview with BT Sport.

“When I came out and said this (earlier this month), all these guys started taunting me. So I went through, and I picked. I said, ‘You. You’re the guy.’ And I told my people, ‘I want this guy.’ And guess what? We got him,” White said, adding that the person in question is not American. “We’re watching his house, we’re listening to his phone conversations, and if he puts it up on Saturday, we got him.”

A high-ranking UFC official with knowledge of the situation told MMA Junkie that the promotion has been working with federal authorities to catch the suspected illegal streaming host. The official, familiar with the UFC’s thinking, indicated the promotion is looking to make this person an example.

A federal COVID relief bill, which was passed by Congress in late December, included anti-piracy legislation – the Protecting Lawful Streaming Act – which states violators could be prosecuted and face up to 10 years in prison for multiple offenses.

Armed with this, White is ready to pounce on the illegal streaming suspect in question.

“(If) he pops this link up on Saturday, we got him, and we will arrest him, and I will prosecute him,” White said. “I will not be nice. I will not give him any leniency whatsoever. I will go guns-a-f*ckin’-blazing on this guy.”
