    Dana White Looking to Sell UFC Ownership

    https://twitter.com/alexweprin/statu...52304299438082

    Endeavor is buying out UFC, will own 100% of the MMA company

    The plan is to take the UFC public.

    Is Dana White staying? Would you buy UFC shares?

    Great

    The only pro American sport is selling out to some woke corporation that hates America.

    Say good bye to the UFC that you know and love. Might not happen overnight but this is the beginning of the downturn.

    Trump's should have bought using campaign funds and family $/leverage

    I think that White anticipates that more fighters will follow Conor McGregor's lead and ditch the UFC for more money; he might also be concerned amount imminent regulation.

    Common guys Endeavor was already a majority owner if the UFC when they sold whenever it was, maybe like 2016. They bought the majority of Zuffa, the UFC parent company.

    Theyre just shoring up and raising the finances to go public.

    While Dana White is a shareholder he is by no means the owner of the UFC....lmao.

    This

    He is watching the NFL get killed w liability issues going forward and States are always changing the rules on regulations.

    As the fights seek more $$ he's got bigger premiums and liabilities on the other side. Getting squeezed from both ends not fun, and w no ticket revenue for the foreseeable future his $$$ profit probably took a big hit

    White is currently in a 7 year contract with UFC until 2026, as the president of the UFC.

    They may have to keep him on, would be foolish no to, or they would have to buy him out.

    That might not be wise pre IPO, White is a huge part of the UFC success these last 20 years.

    I think the point is will they keep Dana on or does he want to stay. I wouldn’t touch those share if i knew Dana was leaving. He has done some shitty things but overall he has been great for the UFC and having a guy who is a huge fight fan running things is a huge plus

    Huge investor question if White were to leave for sure.

    It would be crazy to go public at the same time announcing White's departure.

    I would think.

    If I remember right.

    Dana owns around 10% or more of the UFC post WME IMG.

    Kobe Bryant, Mark Wahlberg, Tom Brady and a number of celebrities bought up large shares.

    The UFC is profitable right now.

    If they take it public and eliminate the Dana Whites. They can run it into the ground with debt. Like bellator, One FC, PFL, bare knuckle FC and all the other corrupt fight promotions out there that need to do 2+ years of shows just to break even on the massive amounts of debt they carry.

    Endeavor isn't pulling the strings. They're the bottom bitch in the relationship.

    I hope people realize bellator and PFL take on massive amounts of debt to pay fighters their salaries. PFL has to do 2 years of events just to break even on their debt. They're not profitable the way the UFC is.

    If the UFC is bought out, promotions like bellator won't have to pretend they care about fighter pay anymore. ESPN won't have to pretend they care if fighters are underpaid.


    There will be many with dumb looks on their faces when they realize people don't give a fk about them. They were only being used as pawns.

    Casual MMA fans: "Disney owned ESPN pushes unions and fighter pay cuz they care about fighters."
    ...


    Reality: "Disney owned ESPN pushes unions and fighter pay cuz they hate right wing toxic masculinity like combat sports that encourage discipline, self reliance/independance and secretly want to destroy it."
