Stupid UFC marketing tactics

UFC 251 with street Judas in my estimations would bring at least 50k-100k more ppv buys. I'm not sure how much more street Judas was asking for but it would have easily been covered.

Now instead they risk Gilbert burns winning and no one really is intrigued by anyone fighting Gilbert burns (he doesn't bring drama and that's all this shit Show is about now)
Marty snoozeman brings more boys to the yard than Gilbert burns.

The people running UFC are destroying they're own monster they created. Sometimes you have to spend money to make money, but they rather risk everything to save a dime. It becoming unreal.

Even Jones vs ngannou would have been worth every penny. It is what it is though.

“This isn’t a career. Even though you train 6 days a week and dedicate your life to it and struggle for years upon years to make something out of your chosen path in life. Fuck the fighters and fuck Jorge for wanting money. These guys should fight for the privilege of fighting for the UFC company. You and your families well being doesn’t mean shit compared to being in the good graces of UFC management. So, you want to be a fucking fighter?!?!”

- Dana White

Imagine spending close to two decades turning MMA into a professional sport, gaining respect from mainstream critics etc. only to come out and say its not a legitimate career path. Dana's doing more damage than good nowadays.


:P

They're in panic mode. WME is bleeding money and just took out a loan to help pay the interest from the initial purchase :lol:

:pointup: Can you link me homie?

I am interested in businesses and how they operate. I could care less about the politics involved, but the actual business decisions and transactions interest me greatly.

I am but a fetus as a businessman, but one thing I learned really early on that holds true is that the only way to judge a company's merits whether ethically or otherwise is to take a look at their PNL. That will tell you almost everything you need to know.

The more I view the UFC's path as a whole nowadays the more it makes me think thay the Fertitas are fucking business GENIUSES. The sold wolf tickets to celebrities for billions of fucking dollars. Who saw that coming as the exit?

$260,000,000 loan at 11% interest makes me head hurt...

That's just one situation out of many affecting them. They purchased UFC for $4B and currently owe $4.6B. The company as a whole is valued at around $3.4B yet has $7.2B in total liabilities. On the bright side, this latest loan (on top of liquefying assets left and right) has bumped their Moody's credit rating from second-worst to third-worst

11% over how many years?

Or does it not work like that?
