The MMA world is buzzing over a report that says the UFC could be sold for upwards of $3 billion dollars, but the promotion’s president has shot down the story.
On Tuesday, ESPN.com reported that the UFC is in advanced talks with several different companies, who want to acquire the promotion. In addition, the report said the UFC could go for between $3.5 and $4 billion dollars…ZUFFA bought the UFC back in 2001 for just $2 million.
So there you go. It will be interesting to see what unfolds next, if anything.
The reports have come out just a few days removed from Saturday’s UFC 198 card in Curitiba, Brazil.
