@danawhite and the UFC Vs Anonymous

by Jeremy Schoemaker on February 29, 2012 · 10 comments

If you read this blog much you know I am a HUGE fan of the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship).

A month or so ago their website was hacked by a group called Anonymous. They defaced the website with some message.

The whole thing was over UFC’s President Dana White’s position supporting SOPA.

Dana responded harshly daring the hacking group Anonymous to try it again. A couple days later the group released his cell phone number, social security number, address and other stuff. Or atleast they thought it was his… it turned out to be his dad’s – Dana White Sr. It was later discovered by authorities that that information was found because someone had access to a Lexus Nexus terminal.

Dana White continued his stance against the hacking group saying he was coming for them.

Here is an actual quote from UFC President Dana White after the group released his fathers info:

“All these hackers and all these guys that want to act f*****g cool and think they’re f*****g funny, you guys just flipped the switch and believe me I have a lot more information on what’s going on than you do,” said White. This bill that was looking like it was going to be dead, you may have brought it back to life.”

Finally adding: “I’m not afraid of you, you don’t f*****g scare me, you come in and do your thing, you don’t scare me.”

Honestly I was blown away by the balls on Dana.

This was pretty crazy. Nobody had ever taken down the group before. Usually companies cower and roll over to the hacking group.

When I was talking to Chuck Liddell (UFC Fighter) he was telling me, “You don’t understand Dana. He is a tough kid from the streets of Boston. Hes coming for them and he has a ton of money at his disposal to hire people to find those punk kids.

I gotta say it was pretty funny to see Dana White respond on twitter to the Anonymous hackers.

Here you have the president of a billion dollar company going to war with a bunch of hackers.

For example:

How LOL is that…

Well today 25 suspects have been arrested in the case from 6 different companies around the world.

Crazy.

Great article, Dana is certainly never boring. Just a little correction, the database software is LexisNexis. I’ve never used it to find personal info, but for journal/market research it is a great tool.

Anonymous is not a “hacking group” …

4 corey

There is nothing in that article that says these arrests were made because of the attacks on the UFC or Dana White, or that he was involved at all. Not sure where you see the connection.

5 LawrenceQ

I don’t think he is saying it was him for sure, he’s just finds it strange how all of it went down around the same time.

6 Edgar

wow thats crazy… its like war, it will never end..

7 ERIC

I would like to hear whether or not this group is caught. Please keep us updated as this matter progresses. Really looking forward to your posts.

Wow..what a tough man… no seriously, only a 12yrs old kid or a literally brainless adult would act/say such crap.

9 Marco

Dana White has proved it. He is ready for war.
