UFC Website Hacked, Possibly As Retaliation For SOPA Support

At roughly 5:40 p.m. ET the official UFC.com website was hacked. The site currently redirects to UGNazi.com, a site which is little more than a picture of an anime version of Hitler and a short message claiming responsibility.

Here's the tweet by the person behind the move:

The prevailing thought on why the site was attacked is today's LVRJ article in which UFC executive VP Lawrence Epstein defended the promotion's support of the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). Support of SOPA has led to many websites being attacked recently and the promotion's rather out of touch stance on the issue likely drew the attention of groups looking to make a little noise.

In the latest defense, Epstein talked about piracy taking away the promotion's profits and ability to help grow the economy as well as talking about the need for the internet to have more rules.

There will be plenty more of these situations happening as the final battles in the SOPA war are fought.
