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

yeah they're treating him like he is jesus budda and mohamed all  rolled into one .

And it's really ridiculous. Other than putting in hours, what has Dana really done for MMA to deserve it? Tar and feathering fighters and companies not affiliated with The UFC, Acting like an immature piece of shit and making the sport look bad as seen in the Loretta Hunt video. Zuffa buying out companies with the promise of keeping them going only to eventually shut them down giving fighters and fans less options. I also don't remember hearing about him going with John McCarthy and Jeff Blatnick around the country to educate athletic commissions and help regulate the sport. Not to mention that if you look at the UFC success, Dana had little to do with it and it was more good luck. If anything, Dana was against The Ultimate Fighter so if The Ferrtitas listened to him, they likely would've sold and the UFC would not have been successful. He also vowed never to bring women in which has done well like Ronda Rousey who became on of UFC's top draws in 2015. You also look at PRIDE collapsing and Strikeforce having investors who weren't committed as other reason's for UFC's success. So, I wish people would stop acting like Dana is this promoting genius who was the only one capable of making MMA successful.

I honestly have no idea where WME and zuffa got these numbers from

I would imagine the WWE being 4 billion or something like star wars.... no way is UFC worth that much?? just how much profit are they making and why the fuck are fighters still being paid like complete SHIT

Dana was the one who wanted to sell when they were in the red . In reality dana and the ferritas should be  thanking  the fans . {I was still am a pride guy  all the way so i never did} . A lot of these new fans and dana drones seems to forget that .It is all saying were going to do this and that but if people didn't put into it ie buying the ppv or whatever else they wouldn't even be were they are .

I don't get it either. I read they are expected to make $200M profit in their first year.

It's kind of a shame that the Chinese guys didn't buy the UFC. We might have seen some interesting changes if they did. But these WME guys, sound like they will just keep the UFC as the UFC except with maybe some more intelligent business practices.

^^^Will they though? I mean Zuffa knows more about MMA than this company, maybe Zuffa royally scammed them and these guys will suck at running it.
