News has just broke that the UFC has accepted a bid for $4.2 Billion dollars for the sale of 100% ownership of the UFC. According to a report by FloCombat and several other reputable sources, the WME-IMG and the Kraft Group. Dana White is expected to stay on board as UFC president. Check it out.
Multiple sources confirmed with FloCombat on Monday afternoon that a bid of $4.2 billion from a group consisting of WME-IMG, the Dalian Wanda Group, The Kraft Group and Tencent Holdings was accepted by Zuffa brass. While this does not mean the entire company is officially sold, it is a strong likelihood that the sale will be completed shortly.
FloCombat sources indicated that the majority of the money for the deal is coming from the Dalian Wanda Group and Tencent Holdings. But WME-IMG and the Kraft Group would act as the faces of the new ownership group, at least in North America.
