UFC going after social media piracy after massive crackdown

After UFC 192 many social media accounts from Facebook and Twitter saw their videos claimed as copyright by ZUFFA and the videos removed with warnings about possible account deactivation.

SBnationGifs and Deadspin Twitter accounts were both recently deactivated after copyright claims on GIFs from the NFL- could ZUFFA be looking to do the same?

ZUFFA started to crack down on online piracy years ago but this is the first time they’ve really started hitting social media hard.

So the best idea, don’t post anymore UFC videos unless you want your social media accounts possibly deactivated. If the NFL could do it on games that show on free tv, the UFC could certainly do it on PPV videos.
