    Never.

    WME is using the UFC and its inflated numbers and doctored accounts to profit off debt.

    For as long as they own the UFC, the UFC will be in some form of debt or another

    The current debt probably like 20 years, but they will never be debt free.

    No major corporation will ever truly pays it debts, Business 101. It sounds good in principle but most companies regardless of industry operate with a certain level of debt, its just smart business.

    Well, when it was sold. According to the profit reported by Lorenzo in 2015. That would have meant something like 27 yrs just to make back the $4.2B pricetag. If future profits matched 2015.

    I don't know anything but the basics of the sale. But, this was clearly not a case of buying something expecting immediate profit dividends. It's pretty obvious, isn't it ?

    One would think that WME has some kind of plan. I just don't know what it is. I'm not sure if they know it either.

    how many times does it need to be said?

    the 6 year, $600m Fox deal comes up in 2018. renegotiating that deal is paramount. WME started the negotiations asking for $450m/yr (source) and claim there are multiple bidders (source).

    so we'll know more in about a year.

    your question should be "how will UFC pay it's debts if they secure $200m/yr from the next Fox-like TV deal?"

    lol every company "profits off debt". People who don't know shit about finance or business always think of a company's debt like their own credit cards that are crushing them and they're desparate to pay off ASAP. It's nothing like that with most debts that businesses carry. If the return on investment that can be made with that capital exceeds the interest rate paid on the debt then it makes sense to borrow the money and maintain the debt. I love hearing all about Sherdoggers' financial acumen, though, so by all means continue talking shit all of you.
