    If the UFC was floated on the NYSE, how much do you think it would be worth?

    [​IMG]

    Forbes List: Valuations of sports teams.

    #1 Manchester United ($2.23 billion)
    #2 Real Madrid ($1.88 billion)
    #3 New York Yankees ($1.85 billion)
    #3 Dallas Cowboys ($1.85 billion)
    #5 Washington Redskins ($1.56 billion)
    #6 Los Angeles Dodgers ($1.4 billion)
    #6 New England Patriots ($1.4 billion)
    #8 Barcelona ($1.31 billion)
    #9 New York Giants ($1.3 billion)
    #10 Arsenal ($1.29 billion)

    WWE's market cap is about 600m.

    I know nothing about the UFC's financials, but I think you should take my word when I say 6 billion.

    no sports are publically held companies, that would be crazy corrupt

    and the answer is very complicated, its not about what your worth its what their speculated future value, thats why Chipotle Mexican Grill cost 10x more than Microsoft

    It would be absolutely impossible to estimate.

    ufc is not a sport.

    its a promotion, just like wwe.

    formula one was going to be floated until the eurozone issues.

    nascar already has a couple of associated companies on the stock exchange.

    - International Speedway Corp., which is controlled by the France family, and Speedway Motorsports Inc., controlled by Bruton Smith. Together, they own every track that the Sprint Cup series races at except Dover, Pocono and Indianapolis.

    Yeah that's not something you can just throw a number out for.

    Just look at what happened to Facebook.

    That would be an awful idea for the sport. You don't want shareholders to pressure the company to make certain moves with fights and cards. It should stay private.

    I have no idea what it would be valued at.

    Interesting - should be some estimates based on debt issues and private placements available on a Bloomberg terminal. I would say it is around 500mm as a guess. No fixed assets like a stadium, and very little merch compared to the other organizations listed.

    WWE is a show, there is no money bet on it and there is no athletic comission or governemnt oversight

    I dont know much about car racing but are you saying those are public companies that you can buy stock in?

    No one here is close to qualified to answer this question. They'll act like they are though, and they'll try. That's why I love em.

    there is actually money bet on wwe and government oversight. in 2007, the Oversight and Government Reform Committee investigated steroid use. as for the betting markets, no one knows the outcomes so its a legit market, albeit a capped one. just like reality tv and occasionally drama.

    its a promo.

    and yes, i believe you can absolutely buy shares in those companies.
