Dana White spoke out against a group of hackers who rerouted UFC.com, calling them “terrorists,” according to Yahoo! Sports. White also re-affirmed his support for the controversial anti-piracy bills, SOPA and PIPA, that were recently nixed in Congress.

"Keep hacking our site, do it again. Do it tonight," said White. "These guys look like terrorists now and a bill that was about to die, is about to come back."

The hackers who took credit for the hit against UFC’s website say they did so in retaliation to the organization's initial support for SOPA and PIPA. As a result of White’s words, the hackers today released information about his personal identification, including his social security number, personal phone number and vehicle identification number. SOPA and PIPA were bills designed to give the government the ability to stop internet piracy, however massive online protests to the language within the bills eventually resulted in them being pulled. SOPA and PIPA, however, were not designed to stop internet hacks like the one UFC.com suffered.
