UFC.com Hacked By Cyber Nazis

(Screen Cap of UFC.com)

It looks like ESPN and the FTC aren’t the only entities with the UFC in their crosshairs. Sometime around 5pm EST the UFC homepage was taken over by a group identifying themselves as the “Underground Nazi H4ck3rGr0up”. The splash page featured a bizarre anime-style sketch of Adolf Hitler with the names of the guilty parties. Streaming in the background was some song so god awful that even Shazam refused to identify it.. The site is still hijacked as of the posting of this story.

The hack is likely to be in retaliation for UFC Executive VP Lawrence Epstein’s interview with the LVRJ in support of SOPA.

In Case You Missed It: Strikeforce’s Announcement of Fedor to the UFC Was A Hoax Posted By Hackers

If you booked the day off work this morning to celebrate after reading the announcement on the Strikeforce website today that former PRIDE heavyweight champion Fedor Emelianenko was officially UFC-bound and that an eventual fight with UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva was in early discussions with the Russian fighter’s management, you’re going to have to call your work back and tell them that the mystery illness that forced you out of the office today is miraculously cured. That way, you can save your sick day for a really momentous occasion, like the day Never Back Down 2 arrives on DVD.

It turns out that the story was a hoax reportedly posted by hackers, though it seems more likely that it was the clever work of a disgruntled former Strikeforce employee who still has access to the company’s servers.

If you didn’t read the story, we’ve got a screenshot and transcription of it after the jump.
