Rumor: Fox offers to buy UFC

Post by Kinosis on Sun Mar 13, 2016 6:05 pm

Have you guys been seeing this rumor going around?

Apparently FOX offered Zuffa 2 billion but Zuffa wanted 3 and they are still negotiating. Saw several links to twitter people talking about it (Carmichael Dave ‏being one). I actually hope it is true because getting dana white and his mob buddies out of MMA would be fantastic.

True but with any luck, they will have problems like Spike and Rebney did and FOX will eventually send them packing.

It's also a private company, so buying it outright requires more than it's intrinsic value.

When the UFC was called a so-called billion dollar company, it was because the guy from Dubai bought a 10 percent stake for $100 million.

The idiot MMA "journalists" ran with that and valued the UFC at $1 billion.

With a public company, with publicly traded stocks, the share price times the number of shares outstanding (for example 10%) gives a rough estimation of the value of the company.

It doesn't work the same way with a private company.

So those "journalists" were idiots.

That said, if the rumors are true, UFC is worth quite a bit indeed.

They might just be empty rumors.

Or they might not be.

I don't really care that much about it.

From a $2M purchase to over a possible $2B sale. Wow.

UFC represents lowlife combat sports so it doesn´t matter who owns it unless they change completely.

If fox ousted zuffa it would be epic ....possibility of opening up UFC to the global GP concept .....

But reality is only reason Fox is even considering it is to get more of the revenue and save money by not having to pay UFC to be on fox.

If zuffa was out of ufc i wouldn't have a problem with them but i don't see that happening...i hate zuffa but they have been making a good profit fox would be crazy to oust them.

I would think the fertittas would want to continue to be owners, it's their main racket, they probably launder money this way.

If they are considering selling, it might be because they feel the heat of being investigated.

Good. By the time they sell it, the price will probably be much lower than it is now. 2017 and beyond are not looking good economically, and all their plans for their white bread 'stars' are crashing as well.

Yeah, Disney paid 4 billion for Lucas' properties like Star Wars and Indiana Jones.  I find it hard to believe the ufc would even be worth half of that considering Star Wars alone generations billions between the movies and toys, etc.

^Yeah, that figure is way too far out there.  They probably wish that was true. That's some big bucks.
