White: UFC Going Public Is A ‘Unhealthy Thought’

Final Combating Championship (UFC) President, Dana White, can just about do and say what he desires with little repercussion (simply ask Loretta Hunt) as a result of the promotion is privately owned and no person within the entrance workplace has to reply to shareholders.

But.

However there are experiences which have Endeavor LLC, father or mother firm of UFC following 2016’s $four billion sale, is planning to go public by the tip of 2019, which suggests Conor McGregor (and the remainder of the world) can lastly personal a bit of the fight sports activities pie.

And he gained’t even should battle Mark Wahlberg to get it.

“I’ve by no means been a fan of the UFC going public,” White informed eight Las Vegas. “Are you able to image me operating a public firm? No, I can’t both. Let’s take some bets on how lengthy I’ll final in a public firm. What’s the over-under on that one?”

I might like to see him clarify this to shareholders.

White has all the time been a foul-mouthed battle promoter who doesn’t thoughts burying his personal expertise so as to defend the model. How that perspective adjustments (or stays the identical) with a publicly-traded firm stays to be seen.

All of the sudden these seven years now not seem to be a lock.
