According to MiddleEasy.com, it appears that UFC owner Lorenzo Fertita has taken the time to write a letter to Chairman Lamar Smith in support of the SOPA bill.

The UFC has faced extreme criticism from their internet fan-base due to their unpopular choice to support this bill. SOPA is not simply a bill that supports anti-piracy; it has the ability to censor an entire website if deemed illegal. It appears that the UFC does not truly understand the bill they are supporting and how it will hinder their own business instead of help them.

The UFC is attempting to maximize their PPV buys, and that is understandable: they are a prime example of corporate capitalism and therefore embrace profit maximization as a given. This does not excuse their blatant support for a dreadful bill that will tarnish their reputation.

Here is the letter written by Lorenzo Fertita to Lamar Smith, the chief sponsor of SOPA, provided by MiddleEasy:

I doubt he read the bill.

He probably just read the title and said it should be possible.

No one who has read the content in the bill can possibly support it.

Ive read it and disheartened of what will happen, this is an attack on peoples FREEDOM both inside and outside America.

The Fertitta stole and corruptly acquired the UFC for bargain basement prices and now being kept awake because they might not get a couple of millions more. These money certainly arent being given out to fighters since most UFC fighters are being paid chumps change.

UFC should increase their security and technology INSTEAD OF INFRINGING ON THE FREEDOM AND RIGHTS OF people.

This SOPA bill is basically like what communist regimes does to its people, but instead of serving the government's needs this bill serves the needs of the RICH 1% (who in turn donate millions to politicians).

What's in it is why Lorenzo supports it.

Welcome to monopoly capitalism.

I don't think Fertita understands just how much the internet has made the UFC grow and therefor made him more wealthy.

Dana White actually challenged the hackers to f@ck him up. They promptly f@cked him and owned him.

I wouldnt even call what happened illegal, I recon that what those Anon guys did was man up to a challenge (from Dana) :boxing::boxing:.

Dana truly has rocks for brains, he gets buy from his rick mafia friends.

Like he says...piracy is keeping him up at night.......riiiiiiiiiiight that's why Dana's worth well over 50 million (or was it 500 I forget :S)

$150 million actually. This guy doesnt even fight, while most of his fighters are lucky to see $60k a year.
