Why the UFC should Capitalize on Pay-Per-View Pirates

There was a time before the Ultimate Fighter show successfully brought mixed martial arts into our living rooms, when the internet served as the only medium to keep up with the latest happenings with the sport. Since then a lot of progress has been made but even now, we still don't see ESPN or regular news inserting fight results between NBA or NFL updates. A recent article on MMA Junkie really struck a nerve with me. President of the UFC Dana White, when asked about pirated UFC Pay-Per-View streams, stated "We're gonna go after them, we're gonna go after them hard, and we're gonna hurt them". Depending on where you sit, you may say this is a good thing or a bad thing. For me anyways it is a sign that the UFC is falling out of touch with their fans and making a mistake of epic proportions.
