The controversial SOPA bill may be shelved for now, but for the first time UFC President Dana White decided to speak out about why the UFC has supported the movement.

While sites like Google and Wikipedia have openly opposed the bill, the UFC's support ended up with their website being hijacked last weekend by hackers who went after the organization for supporting SOPA.

White says that the SOPA bill isn't the perfect answer, but it was what they had to deal with to try and stop piracy of their pay-per-view product.

"Is SOPA the perfect bill, not it's not," White said. "The only thing that we're focused on is piracy. Piracy is stealing."

In regards to the hackers who went after the UFC website, White answered back daring the cyber-bullies to come after them again because they are only fueling the people who actually support SOPA in the first place.

"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."
