Apparently UFC president Dana White has gotten his wish. The New York Times reports that one of the hackers who was involved with Anonymous' campaign of harassment against Dana and the UFC has been arrested by the FBI for credit card fraud unrelated to the UFC.

For those who have forgotten, in January Dana White threw down the gauntlet and challenged "hackers" to mess with him and the UFC. UFC.com was defaced in short order and an unfortunate woman who the hackers mistook for Dana White had her personal contact information shared all over the internet.

Here's what the NYT says about "Josh the God", one of the most vocal hackers during #OpUFC:

Another, Mir Islam, known as JoshTheGod, sold stolen credit card information and had data on 50,000 credit card accounts, according to the United States attorney for the Southern District. He was arrested after buying cards from an undercover agent and trying to use one at an A.T.M. on Eighth Avenue in Midtown Manhattan.

Mr. Islam is accused of helping to operate additional forums, UGNazi.com and Carders.org, both of which were seized by the F.B.I. A lawyer for Mr. Islam declined to comment.
