U.F.C. Sells Itself for $4 Billion - New York Times

Post by nhbnews on Mon Jul 11, 2016 12:53 am

No China investors, and Fertittas "will stay on as minority investors."

TMZ:

The UFC has been sold ... TMZ Sports has confirmed ... and the sale price is around $4 billion.

UFC sources told us entertainment and sports talent agency WME/IMG will be the new owners. The company head, Ari Manuel, will wield a lot of power over the organization.

We're told Dana White will still have a major presence, serving as President. The Fertittas brothers will have a minority interest and a diminished role.
Lorenzo Fertitta will be stepping down as CEO.

Although the deal has been agreed upon, we're told the deal will take 6 weeks to 2 months for final signatures.

Zuffa is gone but I will not support this new org. Dell computers suck ass and IMG is a hype machine that just spams the world with bullshit.


American MMA is dead to me. Long live KUNLUN!

Zuffa ripped them off with 4 billion. Since when was the UFC worth 4 billion? I know a lot of Zombies are sad because Zuffa supposedly did all these great things.

I know Dana is sticking around but hopefully not for long as maybe he'll get forced out.

what legit companies that are household brands do we know that are even worth 4 billion? UFC is worth 750m- 1 billion at least...not 4

Candy Crush sold for 5.9 billion.

The whole thing is a giant scam. Without the PPV stars/market their going to fold in 2-3 years. Hopefully sooner.

I didn't support Zuffa and their trash version of the sport.

I won't support this company.

Hopefully Dana gets forced out rather quickly.

American mma is garbage..and sadly will continue to be garbage.

They didn't pay 4 billion to improve fighter pay or improve the product. Expect more of the same.

lol Conor takes another beating and Jones gone, Rousey weighs 200 lbs. Who is going to sell a PPV? That is by far their biggest income maker and it has zero future. What suckers. Hopefully every company involved is bankrupted soon.

Sadly, I can see Zuffa Zombies say "See, Zuffa knew what they were doing".

They don't need ppv headliners. They don't need to create new stars.

The cage is the star.

Just line up two random TUF fighters and create a fake fued.

That's the recipe for ppv success.

on every other mma site people are defending Dana to the death and happy for him. Sick freaks are pretending they get a cut of his money or something.

I never understand fans who think just because they buy a product somehow they are a partner or owner now and celebrate others money and success.


News flash. You didnt have stock in Zuffa you retards.
Sick and disgusting.

I remember not too long ago they were rumored to be worth $1B and then $2B was mentioned. This jump to $4B and still keeping some share in the company is another huge jump. Purchased for $2M in 2001 and sold for $4B plus minor stake just 15 years later. Unreal.

Does anyone know what share of the company the Fertitta brothers own and what percent share Dana owns?
