Apparently its the kraft group,Dalian wanda group,and someone else with a 4.2 billion dollar bid.Also Dana White will be staying on and apparently will be receiving a new stake of the company as well.

Stu kunlun keeping dana on how you feel about that?

It seems ufc isnt gonna change much .......i doubt they change whats gotten them to a lucrative point.Reebok deal will stay until contract i over.I genuinely hope this is true and ufc is selling.......

I also hope they change business practices up.....but realistically i don't think much will change with dana still around ......what do you guys think?

It sucks to see Dana sticking around. Contrary what some think, Dana isn't the be-all, end-all nor is he irreplaceable. You can also argue he's more of a headache then he's worth. My only hope is that we get a repeat with Rebney in that it's all kumbiya for a year and then White gets sacked.

Yeah, I read about a week ago that Dana was likely to stay on board.

Hes not just sticking around hes gonna own stakes in the company.which means he'll still have a say on what goes on.

The main reason I wanted it to sell was to be rid of dana.

With Dana staying, it pretty well crashes all hope for real changes. More likely, the Dalian WanDa group will just sit back and cash checks while the UFC continues on with business as usual. This sucks.

Maybe not. Like I said, Dana may stick around but for how long? Remember what happened with Bjorn Rebney. For about a year, everything was supposedly going great and then by the end of 2013, the rumors began that Viacom wanted him out and he denied it for months until finally getting bought out in June 2014. What's stopping new owners from doing this to Dana? Sure, he may remain but sooner or later, he may get forced out.

If you sprinkle sugar on a piece of shit you end up with a piece of shit with sugar on top. Replacing dana white may not be the glorious day some of you if not all of you are hoping for. The ufc mma sport or what ever is a shit show. There have been some awesome fights over the years in japan & the history of combat is deep but this whole ufc thing is a political pile of shit. Every one in it is morally bankrupt. Everyone that means the bell end tour as well. I can just see the number 2 usa mma company waiting with sweaty palms to take over where ufc left off with their virtually identical version of ufc.
Edit:
The competition...

A completely hope bellator does takeover zuffa it would be better the the current deal.

Coker and viacom are helping mma with fighter sharing,copromotion,supports the ali act in mma,feedom of sponsorship,and kickboxing venture.

Talk all the shit u want but bellator is doing more for the sport then really any other company actually trying to unite mma.

As is like said before dana will still be the public face,still have a stake in the comoany and a say in the over all business,only thing changing is the name on the checks and maybe some more chinese imports.......this is far from a takeover.

^The Bellator/RIZIN version and vision of MMA is far superior to the UFC.

Bellator and Rizin have done more for the sport than the UFC because they're actually to be more open instead of being selfish and rape the sport because of greed like the UFC.
