WME conned ESPN
Wme trying to get that return money asap lol. Good for espn, bad for fans imho
@FrankieNYC care to shed some light on the ESPN details
Why is this bad for fans?
Wme conned the fertitas
Daaaaaaammmmn 1.5 billion??
Wow ESPN stole the pot here
1.5 billion? That's crazy.
I thought it was surreal hearing that Fox was willing to pay 1 billion for WWE programming over a five year period, and they get better ratings in general than the UFC does. ESPN willing to shell out 1.5 billion for the UFC, though? And I thought WME-IMG got conned.
If true, ESPN provides much more exposure than Fox and FS1. That is a huge number to help make back the original investment. Curious of the length of the deal. IMO this is good for the growth of the sport.
Over 50 years.. sound good now?
You'll need the extended package for fights on whatever the lower ESPN channel is iirc. Fs1 was awesome for fight nights and now we have to adjust to whatever ESPN thinks will be "better". Guess we will see?!
Lol and the circus continues fuck that’s a lot of money, I’m sure the quality of cards will improve tremendously.
Does this included PPVs?
Why is it bad for fans, though? It's the same as fox.
Damn. Disney's just taking everything from Fox. Now, watch ESPN pimp the shit out of Nick Newell. You know they will.
Hopefully MMA will get more exposure from this, it'll probably be the same shit tho.
True if huge
