The sale of the UFC is moving forward, according to a report from FloCombat. The report claims that they have confirmed through multiple sources that a $4.2 billion bid coming from a group that includes WME-IMG, the Dalian Wanda Group, The Kraft Group and Tencent Holdings was accepted by Zuffa.

One big component to the UFC has been the President of the company, Dana White and many have been wondering if White will continue to be with the company if and when a sale takes place. FloCombat’s report indicated that their sources have told them White will still continue to be with the UFC dealing with the promotional side of the business while a new CEO will come in and develop areas of new international business.

What kind of difference will we see if the UFC is sold? Share your thoughts on what this could mean for the UFC and the fighters.
