'Turn it on on Saturday streamers and see what happens' 

Letters from ISPs? Fining local dive bar? Or are they going after every Twitch kid?

Interesting that BLAF would call them out rather than just catch them.

Dana fails to mention a small little detail. The only ones he's gonna "get" are potentially the people who are SHARING the PPV. There is zero enforcement of viewing piracy. Your ISP might send you an e-mail. That's about it.

Dana's acting like he's gonna go Jay and Silent Bob on illegal streamers.

A lot of guys being glib over this, but I for one am legit scared. Obviously there is no concern to us streamers getting in trouble, as some are narrow sightedly fixated on, but if he has found a way to zap the streaming technology before or during the fights then a lot of people are gonna be gut punched on Saturday night, lol!

I may or may not pay for this one, but my reality is that I have no cable or satellite, so even the free cards need to be streamed for me. I live in a small and very remote village so if I want to watch the ppv's, I am stuck supporting the full cost to watch the fights by myself most of the time. The bars in rural areas don't show ppv's anymore because the ppv model for establishments in small towns and rural areas simply does not make business sense, and they end up losing money.

I don't mind paying for the odd large event such as this one, but if I am alienated from all UFC ppv's going forward than the large events will no longer have the same appeal. I used to pay for every ppv 10 years ago, and many I would watch alone, the odd one with a buddy, and on a big night 2 buddies to split the cost with, but my friends who used to watch no longer follow it. Besides, I prefer watching sports by myself most of the time. 

Not sure yet how I will approach this weekend, but my fingers are crossed that whatever Dana has up his sleeve doesn't result in some new tech that can nuke the streams online entirely during an event. That would really bite the big one.

This. 

What does dana expect when he waters the main card down with extra dilution and then ups the buying price ? 

He clearly expects lots of streaming. 

 

And i think hes bluffing.

He has talked about streamers who charge money for streams. I'm not sure of the laws and such but I dount Dana is bluffing here. He has been going on about this too much for the last few weeks to not have something planned. After the two main events this is the most interesting thing about this event for me.

BLAF thinking his bullshit scare tactic is going to work. He is just playing the bad cop role,let him have his fun.

My friend will probably keep streaming.

I don`t know how easy it is for the people who provide the streams,but I hope that they are ahead of the game or don`t have to worry about it.

Dana sounds serious so I don`t know who to believe.

Watching his house? Tapping the phone? Is this an FBI operation out to get some nerd that pissed Dana off.

"We are going to arrest him". Who are "we"?

I would love to see Danas red fat head storm a house behind a SWAT team in UFC gear, cameras rolling. But this sounds like bullshit. We'll see, I guess.
