i have always thought that the ufc should have a feeder org where they can sign rising stars that arent quite ready for the ufc and also as a place for older stars who cant cut it in the ufc to fight and let the up and comers build names off of.

win win for zuffa

No its strictly a content only deal. FP will hire their own people, run their own events etc.

But Invicta has always let girls out of their contracts to go UFC and that wont change. IF Cyborg is ready to make a UFC deal they wont stop her.

UFC has secretly owned Invicta for over a year.

They've just about done that already which is another option that is very viable. They've already picked up every strawweight Invicta had. Either way, I don't think Invicta as a 100% independent company is long for this world.
