The UFC is seeking hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages in its copyright-infringement lawsuit against a Syracuse, New York bar.
Hungry Chuck’s bar is accused of illegally broadcasting UFC 283 Jamahal Hill vs. Glover Teixeira fight without paying a commercial licensing fee. The lawsuit was filed in federal court in Syracuse last week.
The bar made its return at a new location last year after a five-year hiatus. It has operated on-and-off for more than 50 years in the Syracuse University area.
Hungry Chuck’s advertised streaming the pay-per-view fight card on its Instagram page in January. The bar had a $5 cover charge.
The UFC is asking a judge to award $110,000 in damages for each defendant named in the lawsuit. Hungry Chuck’s and owner Steve Theobald are listed separately as defendants.
