Is Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) for sale?

That depends on who you ask. Some reports already have the world’s largest mixed martial arts (MMA) promotion bagged and tagged, while officials — like UFC President Dana White — insist it’s much ado about nothing. But if a sale does go down, expect a “Notorious” bidder to make his move.

From Sunday Business Post:

John Kavanagh, the coach of Irish mixed martial arts fighter Conor McGregor, has said he expects that the sport’s breakout athlete would ask for a stake in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) if it was sold.

With rumours circulating of a $4.2 billion UFC sale, Kavanagh raised the prospect of McGregor seeking equity from any new owner.

“Conor will have thought of this and I am sure, when he is sitting down with his new overlords, he will have that conversation,” Kavanagh said.

If Lois Einhorn is Ray Finkle, then Conor McGregor is … Brantley Foster?

The reigning UFC featherweight champion is the highest paid MMA fighter on the roster (for now) and could strengthen his lead with a big turnout for the upcoming UFC 202 pay-per-view (PPV) event in August, when he rematches welterweight nemesis Nate Diaz.

Maybe this was “The Answer” all along?
