Dana White on UFC sale rumors: “We are working on a deal”

May 11, 2016 9:30 am by Evan Bell

Rumors have been flying for quite some time now that state that the UFC brass is currently shopping around for a buyer for the promotion.

While a detailed report emerged earlier this week that says 4 buyers have emerged in the bidding war for the biggest MMA promotion on the planet, UFC President Dana White has denied that the UFC is for sale.

Despite that, on a recent appearance on the Dan Patrick Show, White revealed further details about the “deal” that he and the Fertitta brothers are working on.

It’s important to draw attention to the fact that White said the promotion is “working on a deal” but didn’t refute claims that a portion of the promotion is for sale. In addition, White bringing up an expansion could indicate that the promotion is looking to bring in a partner as a minority shareholder.

Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
