Hackers love to go after mixed martial arts (MMA) promotions.
The most famous takeover occurred when Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was hijacked for its anti-piracy stance, as well as its alignment with the controversial Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA).
More on that hilarity here.
The latest victim appears to be World Series of Fighting (WSOF), which recently yielded to a Turkish hacker operating under the handle “MuhmadEmad.” His beef was not with Ray Sefo and Co., but rather those scoundrels in the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

Fortunately for WSOF and its fans, order has been restored and the website is back up. That means the promotion can continue to promote its upcoming WSOF 35 event on NBC Sports Network, taking place on Sat., March 18, 2017 at Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona, New York.
