As we all know, the UFC has been hard at work ensuring that no one is going to broadcast their pay-per-views illegally. If you read the notice above carefully, the UFC has notified search engine powerhouse Google of links that lead MMA fans to illegal streams and has asked for them to be removed (links not shown). Zuffa has been very active over the course of the past year ensuring that these websites do not get the opportunity to profit from their pay-per-view shows.

    That sucks I sometimes stream fights offline and most of the time if I’m trying to get a UFC fight they always say they were taken off understandably I know whyy but still sucks I mean they’re older fights most of the time I’m trying to see, but oh well on tv enough.
