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.
