Buying the ufc for 4B$ = worst deal in the sport history ?

    because i cnt see the ufc continue their upward curve for the next five years.
    golden years already passed, between 2012-2014 ufc was that "forbidden" thing where even boxers were skeptical (jealousy of the hype of course, and some disdain too)

    4b was the price back in 2012 imo.
    Do they have something in their minds? Making superfights with boxing stars?

    You not sell it again coz nobody will buy, so you wants more of that upward curve... Where the fck is mma going to the next level? i cnt see it we already have the big fights.


    Im sure dana know it too, he probably had a good laugh when he saw that 10% in his bank account.

    The future growth is all about getting into Asia.....

    And revenue wise, 2015 was the UFC's best year...so acting like they made more money back in 2012 is false.

    It was worth whatever someone was willing to pay for it.

    But hey. This is sherdog where shertards are clearly smarter than multi-billion dollar firms.

    Theres a lot of potential, we just saw recently how fast stars can be created under proper circumstances (ronda holly conor), so who knows what the plan is

    multi billion ceo can be sometimes more dumb than your average local ceo in your city dude.

    We have plenty of examples of bad deals, ask obama.

    So you think one of the biggest firms in the world with ivy league trained accountants and financial analysts are just wrong? There are stars that can be marketed like Michael Page who isnt currently with the UFC (aka room to grow) There is an entire continent with most of the worlds population where they dont have a foothold (aka room to grow) so yes there is room to grow. Massive, Massive room to grow. Just because there is market saturation in Brazil and Las Vegas does not mean there is world wide.
