In some funny news today, the UFC website has been hacked by UGNazi.com. Visitors of the UFC website are met with a cartoon description of Hitler with names of the people claiming the responisbilty. @Joshthegod posted the following message on twitter to confirm who is responsible.
BloodyElbow.com explains the motive behind the attack.
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.
