Dana White has sensationally claimed that his plan to stop illegal streamers has already started and that they're already "watching" a pirate.
In the latest development of Dana White vs. illegal streaming, the UFC supremo has made a massive statement including listening to this pirate's phone calls and watching his house when he was speaking to BT Sport ahead of UFC 257.
"I told my people I want this guy. And guess what? We got him. We're watching his house," he claimed. "We're listening to his phone conversations. And if he puts it up on Saturday, we got him."

White has been on a rampage against those who provide illegal streaming of his shows, which loses the company potential millions in PPV sales. The UFC president was speaking to The Mac Life and brought up his views on those who provide the streams.
“Listen, you’re a criminal," White asserted. "You’re a criminal and now I’ve got guys - I love this one, listen to this one - there’s a guy right now who, literally after I said this thing, so if you go through my Instagram and look through all the comments, there’s a guy saying ‘DM me if you want to get the fight this weekend.’ He’s stealing people’s information. People that are DM’ing him, he’s stealing their information. He’s taking your money from your bank and charging your credit card. These guys are fucking scumbag criminals! Don’t listen to them! These guys are scumbags, they’re criminals. They’re bad guys.”
The internet has been having fun at White's expense and again remains undefeated and undisputed in providing memes and great content at the drop of a hat. It remains to be seen if White's claims are baseless and just a scare-tactic to those who may be tempted to source a stream or if they are indeed surveilling one guy and planning to bust him.
