Dana White explains tracking of illegal UFC streamers after ‘we’ve got you’ rant

UFC President Dana White is ready to press charges on those who create mass streams of UFC 257.

The businessman has lashed out at those who have been sharing events online in the past, reminding those who do so that they are criminals ahead of Conor McGregor vs Dustin Poirier.

While elaborating on his rant, White has confirmed that he is on the lookout for one particular mass sharer of the event, rather than every individual online viewer.

The 51-year-old is confident that the unnamed sharer will be prosecuted should they do the same this weekend, after that person mocked his privacy tackling efforts in the past.

”So, we've been working on piracy since day one. It was one of the things that we focused on,” White told BT Sport this week.

“You know, it's an important thing to stop in this business. We've spent tons of money on all this stuff. We've just got some real important legislation done with piracy this year.

“These people are criminals, and the internet makes it look like these guys are good guys – these guys are bad guys. When I came out and said this, all these guys started taunting me.

“So, I went through [all of them]. And I picked [one]. I said, 'you, you're the guy.' And I told my people, 'I want this guy.' And guess what? We got him.

“We're watching his house. We're listening to his phone conversations.

”And when he puts up this, if he puts it up on Saturday, we got him. And we will arrest him. And I will prosecute him. I will not be nice. I will not give him any leniency whatsoever.”

Before adding: "A lot of these guys will put up these links and say, 'hey, check out. We'll give it to you for free,' and all this stuff, and they steal your information.

”[This] is worldwide. This guy isn't in America. These guys think [that] they're so smart. They think they're untouchable. They think it's impossible. When you have a company as big… they can catch you.

“You can be caught. The guy just has to be as sick as me and want to get you, okay? And we got you, buddy. This guy puts this link up on Saturday night… he's mine."
