    UFC President Dana White claims the price tag for his fight promotion is nearly double what it sold for roughly two years ago.


    Endeavor purchased the UFC for $4.025 billion in August 2016. There were many perceived uncertainties in the wake of the deal, but White immediately promised it would be for the betterment of the organization in the sport moving forward.


    According to White and corroborating investor reports, 2017 was the most financially lucrative year in company history. Add in the UFC’s new stateside television deal with ESPN worth $1.5 billion over five years, and White said the value of the UFC brand now sits at a whopping $7 billion.

    As usual Dana is most likely exaggerating but as I said in May, 2019 it will be at over $6b

    Also, the Tony Robbins interview is well worth a watch.



    Dana talks about a lot of things, from his beginnings, the early days of the UFC, where it's at and where he sees it in the future. Don't get too hang up on the 7 billion headline, there's a lot of good stuff.

    Thanks But i am all Dana'd out after watching objectified & knowing a lot of his comments are suspect or exaggerated.

    But anybody with rudimentary math & business knowledge knew UFC would be worth $6b plus in January.
