What are the odds Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) gets sold in 2016?

I’m glad you asked.

The world’s preeminent mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion is reportedly being courted by international investment groups including Dalian Wanda Group (DWG), DWG, WME/IMG, China Media Capital, and The Blackstone Group, among others.

UFC President Dana White denies the report, which he called a creation of the click baiters.

That hasn’t stopped the Las Vegas bookies from laying down odds and betting lines on whether or not UFC gets gobbled up before year’s end.

From Bovada.lv:

How Much will the UFC be Sold for?
Over/Under 3.99 Billion
**Must be sold in 2016 for Action.

Will the UFC be sold in 2016?
Yes +150 (3/2)
No -200 (1/2)
**Majority Stake in the Company must be sold for Yes to be graded the winner.

Fuck it, I’m taking YES and the UNDER for a sweet parlay.

UFC was valued at nearly $2 billion in late 2014 and landed at No. 10 on Forbes “Fab 40” list of world’s most valuable sports brands (details). That said, White and Co. are “not beat up yet” and still have a passion for MMA, so don’t expect business to change hands anytime soon.

Besides, Dana would never lie.
