    "During the construction of Fight Island, Dana White had complained to the press about how expensive it was. In fact, Abu Dhabi not only built the arena and provided private planes, food, housing, testing facilities, and medical staff; it also paid the UFC for each fight, at rates that compensated for the absence of ticket sales. According to people familiar with the company’s finances, the league was Endeavor’s most successful business in 2020. Amid the trials of the pandemic, Endeavor President Mark Shapiro said, 'UFC was our saving grace.' Ari Emanuel told me, with evident affection, 'Khaldoon has always been an incredible partner.'”

    People give Dana White a lot of shit, and he talks out of the side of his mouth often, but that man gets the job done

    Imagine having a small enough dick to where your hobby is making propagandized cartoons of people you dislike.
