Wanna own a stake in the UFC? If you’ve got something in the neighborhood of 100+ million bucks, you could be the proud owner of a 10 to 15 percent part in the company! Dana White put out the word via Bloomberg, but those hoping this stake comes with the same intoxicating powers (and stress related baldness) Dana has will be disappointed: it’s a silent partner thing only.
Still, you never know how shit like this will work out. The Fertittas were just trying to consolidate ownership of Station Casinos when the economy collapsed, and now it’s the people they borrowed money from trying to claw the empire away from them. And of course there’s Mark Cuban, who bought some of the UFC’s debts from a third party and is now a Zuffa bondholder.
Those are completely different situations of course, but I’m just saying you never know how deals like this can play out. One UFC jet malfunction and you could find yourself at the helm of the company faster than you can say John Denver. Now all you need to do is figure out how to raise the 9 digit sum required (and how to sabotage a jet).
