    We're just going to see more crossovers and more stupid events like Conor / Floyd to try and make those billions back.

    Can't wait..........

    They haven't bought UFC for those bums. They have bought it for Platinum. Who will turn them into a Fortune 500 corporation.

    They made $500M 2 weeks ago so I think they will be OK

    The whole fight would have generated probably in the 650 million range, and 300 went right to floyd. 100 apparently went to conor so what do we guess. WME made 50-100?

    No they did not!

    Well, UFC are making over $100m profit this year & WME went up almost 15% in value since buying less than 50% of UFC
    I'd say they are very happy :)

    I would assume some of that cash was for brand recognition and the entire talent pool, and not just three people. Don't buy their stock if you're worried about it going downhill.

    It's idiotic logic, the UFC is bigger than it's stars.
    People will still watch whoever the UFC put out.

    The idea of grouping Jon in with Conor and Ronda when it comes to $$$ is preposterous. Jon has not even sniffed the money they have earned for the UFC.

    That seems too low to me. I don't feel like WME would allow Conor to be tied up for that long, or to risk him getting injured or the risk of their brand/image being hurt for only 10 mill.
