The Ultimate Fighting Championship is accusing a Nebraska bar of illegally televising a fight without permission from the mixed martial arts promoter.
In a lawsuit filed this week, an attorney for the UFC claims The Edge Bar and Grill in Alda showed a live broadcast of the March 19 event, which featured a fight between Jon Jones and Mauricio Rua.
"It is logical to conclude that (the bar) either used an illegal satellite receiver, misrepresented their business establishment as a residence or removed an authorized receiver from one location to a different business location in order to intercept Plaintiff's broadcast," the complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Lincoln says.
The UFC accuses Larry Davidson of Elwood, named as The Edge's owner in the lawsuit, and his company of illegally receiving the broadcast, showing the event without distribution rights and violating copyright law.
The promoter is seeking as much as $260,000, plus attorney's fees.
