UFC Files $32 Million Lawsuit Against PPV Pirate
A brazen thief finally got caught.
The UFC has filed suit against Steven Messina, 27, for stealing pay-per-view broadcasts and uploading them to file-sharing services like PirateBay, according to a report from NY Post, and is now seeking $32 million in damages.
Ironically, the article states that Messina lives in Staten Island with his mom and dad.
The suit alleges that Messina uploaded 141 UFC PPVs and even provided a PayPal donation link.
Messina, who went by the username of “Secludedly,” is the recipient of the largest lawsuit filed by the UFC in its quest to squash online pirating.
