Dana White Tempts Fate

UFC head Dana White probably has an overblown sense of metaphor. He definitely has a target on his back.

After publicly supporting controversial anti-piracy legislation SOPA and PIPA, hackers knocked UFC.com offline. In response, White told TheScore.com reporter Mauro Ranallo, “What these Internet guys have done now, is in a situation where, it’s almost like New York. In New York when the towers got hit, people didn’t run away in fear. … We’re going to find you, believe me. This is bigger than me. This is bigger than the UFC. You go out there and start acting like a terrorist, you’re going to get bin Laden’d.”

Putting aside the ill-advised comparison for a second, on Jan. 26 hackers again went after the UFC site, claiming to gain access to sensitive customer information and also posting White’s personal contact information. They appear, though, to have gotten some bum info, posting details instead for a local woman.
