Do you think the UFC will ever be sold?

Do you think this will happen in the next 5 years if the popularity continues to decline?

Also, could the UFC actually end up with worse owners?

Anything is possible.

Not all that probable though. Unless DW and Lorenzo finally go, "f**k it, I'm done."

Evidence of decline?

Actually, I could see the Fertittas selling if a fighter's union is ever formed. They've had a contentious relationship with unions before. Not that they'd have to, but it probably wouldn't be something they'd be willing to deal with.

Yes they will, all that milking they are doing now is making it obvious.

Would be a crazy day and complete role reversal if Viacom bought out the UFC

anyone that knows anything about business knows everything is for sale, theres just gotta be the right numbers involved
when DW and Lorenzo start to realize its not going to be as big as soccer world wide then I personally see Viacom making them an offer
They have already gotten rich off the product and if theres signs of things slipping I cant see them saying no
as of now I see them holding onto it a bit longer tho
