Is UFC About To Be Sold?

ESPN is reporting that they have spoken to several unidentified sources who claim that MMA promotion Ultimate Fighting Championship is about to be sold to one of at least four different potential buyers, including a company headed by the richest man in China. While Zuffa LLC (the current ownership of UFC) is a private company and does not reveal financial information, the rumored purchase price for the company could be in the area of $4 billion. It should be noted that Zuffa originally purchased UFC in 2001 for only $2 million.

For what it’s worth, UFC President Dana White has publicly responded to the reports by saying “the UFC is not for sale”.
