Sean O’Malley was feeling like all of us following the UFC’s announcement that they were increasing the cost of pay-per-view again. Fans argue now that the price is already extremely high and therefore this will only cause more displeasure within the MMA scene, with the new cost of PPV being set at $74.99.
O’Malley who is most recently coming off the success of his 1st round TKO victory against Raulian Paiva at UFC 269 reacted to the announcement during an episode of TheBroMalley Show.
“Dana White raises pay-per-view by five dollars. What the hell are we doing here Dana?”
“No, I doubt it, but could be. It is just so easy to stream it illegally. Not talking from experience, but just saying it. Whoever is in control of legal streams at the UFC, they need someone that is good enough at hacking (them) right before the main event starts. Every single time that they just shut it right before the good stuff.”
O’Malley would also mention how he believes increasing the price for PPV will only result in more individuals attempting to illegally source the fights. He also commented on fighter pay, as he is one of few fighters to show support to Dana White regarding this.
“Dude, like I don’t even blame (Dana). It’s like some of these f*cking people have zero following. They’re not making the UFC one hundred thousand. I mean they’re not making the UFC fifty thousand. They’re not making the UFC any money, really. But that’s just from a business perspective. From Dana’s business perspective and I can see that.” (transcribed by BJPenn.com)
