theres been a lot of talk about the fertittas selling the UFC to a private equity firm. If this is true what do you guys think of this?

Is MMA dying out? What would be the reasons for them to sell it?

I also read and heard that the fertittas want to buy a football team

Sources??

I've heard nothing about this anywhere, so it's hard for me to speculate how and why.

I heard rumors about this over a year ago, but it has mostly to do with football.
The fertitas really want a franchise in Las Vegas, and I think they were hoping to see some collapse from the Raiders/Chargers/Rams debacle. However, looks like they've worked that out for the time being.

It makes sense, with the UFC having an estimated worth of about $1.2B .... which is probably what it would take to put a team in Las Vegas.

Yeah I'm a Raiders fan and really liked the sound of the Vegas Raiders, but it's not gonna happen.
Not this year, anyway......

That is significantly overvalued, imo.

Even if it's potentially "valued" that high, it's not like there are that many people with that type of capital just lying around.

There is a difference between "actively trying to sell" and "willing to sell for an absurd amount", imo.


Hell, I have no reason to switch jobs, but if a competitor offers to double my salary tomorrow, I am gone.
That doesn't mean I am hunting for a new job.

its way overvalued.
the fox deal and reebok deal really hurt the ufc.
they had their flame in 2010 when the world was obsessed with MMA but it has consistently went south since.
Yeah conor and ronda helped spark a little interest again but it was geared more towards them individually not for the sport or the company.
now ronda has been beaten to a pulp and was thinking about suicide, supposedly was dating a married man, and finally doesnt seem invincible it changed for her and the ufc. same goes for conor and a nail in the coffin would be if he lost again in his next match.
the fertitta brothers are super smart business guys who have their hand in almost every pot you could imagine. I would assume that they are aware of the issues that seem to be growing and would want to jump ship at the right time to maximize their investment. They did a great job building the UFC but an oversaturated market, fighters who cant get any recognizition to be marketable, bad publicity, aging stars, and in some way bad business decisions have hindered their growth and the future doesn't seem so bright.
I wouldn't be surprised if they were actively trying to sell at this point and if they get the 6 billion they are fucking gods for that.

Has the UFC ever released any annual revenue numbers?

I don't recall seeing them but I'm sure that info is available. ill try to find those numbers out.

the fertittas sold a portion of the ufc to that sheik from Dubai(or whatever he is ) a few years ago so I'm really not surprised that they are doing this if it si true but for them to ask for 6 billion that is just plain obsurb.

2014-

Example: the UFC, a new member of the Fab 40. The estimated value of the mixed martial arts promotion company is $1.65 billion (15 times earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), while the average business with the same profitability would be worth $1.21 billion (11 times operating income). The UFC brand is worth $440 million ($1.65 billion minus $1.21 billion).

oof.

If they could get 2.5 billion they should run to the bank.

I wonder how they value the Brand?? Is that just pulled out of the air or is there some sort of data (like random shirts/equipment they slap their logo on) to support it.

Jordan earned about twice that amount off his brand the last 10 years. Maybe the UFC "brand" is valued at that much.

that's a good question.

but there isn't that much stuff that is being promoted "UFC". the dolls went under. the clothing is reebok. the gyms have failed. they have their fights and that's about it.
