It’s another big night in the sporting calendar, especially for those that love Ultimate Fighting Championship. With UFC 116 results starting to show online, you will also find those that want to watch a UFC 116 live stream for free, which does have it’s own problems.
Most people look for the cleanest way possible to do this, like a UFC 116 Sopcast channel but they may not understand its legality. More action is being taken against streaming sites that do it illegally; you may remember Ninja Video (a movie pirate site closed down recently).
The legality of Sopcast is not the problem; you can read about SopCast technology here. It’s more on who uses this tech, and what they broadcast. People have been asking “Is Sopcast Legal?” for years, which it can be for broadcast material that’s free and carries no copyright.
At the time of writing, it seems that there is no legal ways to stream UFC and other PPV sporting events. It’s best if you go to DirecTV or the official UFC site.
