Signing a tv deal is not pumping profits into things, that's just making more profits from what you already have. If they'd started their own specialized tv channel, that would be putting money into things.
As for adding new divisions, did the UFC go fund the development and training the last few years for the new flyweights and women, or did they just add divisions and sign more fighters that were already working elsewhere? When the UFC starts opening their own training centres to get people into the sport, and then uses those fighters to fill their cards... they'll be pumping money into the sport.
