A New York man just got hit with a massive lawsuit from the UFC.

According to  Selim Algar of the New York Post, the UFC alleges that Staten Island’s Steven Messina, 27, was systematically ripping and distributing mixed martial arts and boxing events through file-sharing websites such as Pirate Bay. He drew the ire of the UFC’s lawyers by labeling himself as the “Provider of Best MMA & Boxing rips online” and setting up a PayPal account for fans to donate to his cause, according to court documents obtained by Algar.

This isn’t the first time that White has gone after people who have pirated PPV events.

In 2010, UFC President Dana White vowed a crackdown on Internet piracy. Then, in 2012, he publicly supported the “Stop Online Piracy Act” (SOPA), an unpopular decision with many fans that ultimately led to the UFC website getting hacked. While the SOPA bill died out that same year, news broke in February 2014 that the UFC was actively, and successfully, going after fans for watching and/or streaming its events online.
