    Las Vegas-based Zuffa LLC, owner of the UFC, filed suit in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas on Friday against the Web sites www.watchufc111.com and www.watchufc111free.com

    Attorneys for Zuffa, Michael Feder and John Krieger of the Las Vegas office of the law firm Lewis and Roca LLP, charge in the complaint that an individual in Framlingham, Suffolk, United Kingdom, registered the watchufc111 name and an individual in Jacksonville, Fla., registered the watchufc111free name.

    According to the Las Vegas Sun story, UFC also filed suit against a Stafford, Va. man Moazzam Gandu back on Feb 18. Gandu's site rage-streams.net was selling unauthorized UFC broadcasts for $6.95.
