It sounds like the sale of the UFC is marching ahead successfully. FloCombat reports that sources close to the company are saying that a group of investors have put together a $4.2 billion bid for the MMA organization and that Zuffa has accepted it.

This potential new ownership group apparently consists of WME-IMG, the Dailan Wanda Group, The Kraft Group, and Tencent Holdings. Alongside this news are reports that, despite selling his shares as part of the deal, President of Operations Dana White would be staying on in his role with the promotion, apparently receiving a new stake in the company as well.

If you're ever going to put someone down, first walk a mile in their shoes. Then you're a mile away from them and you have their shoes.

So we really need Dana White to stay on board? What does the guy actually do, other then continue to secure the huge line between the UFC and recognized/respected professional sports promotions like MLB/NBA/NFL/etc and insult any fighter who dares badmouth the promotion in the slightest
