Fox offers UFC 200 million for broadcasting rights

IMG/WME thought they could he worth as much as 450 million, as per Darren Rovells twitter

Who wouldve thought that WME has a crazy figure in their head of what the UFC is worth......

 

Didnt they just buy Lorenzo out paying him as if the company is now 5 billion?

Just stop putting it on after baseball and I don’t give two fucks. Bastards can’t ever keep their games within their prescribed broadcast times..

It’s not a bad initial offer... just need another bidder to drive it up.

Word on the street is Viacom is coming in at 200,000,001.

Lol

remember my thread about the Ferrite's buying it back for a billion?

It's a Price is Right bidding model.

Netflix might win as the dark horse with a $1 bid

not surprising, if i were fox i woulnt pay for the shit cards theyve been surving up for the past 3 years

Buttchugging

Looks like nbc and turner may also enter bids.

Oh god do I fawking hate baseball too.

Every time I have to jump around channels or miss part of a fight because of baseball I seriously have to restrain myself from smashing shit. Anything would be better, even darts.

Every time without fail it was an extra innings game that didn't count and they went to the bullpen 20 times. 

Waiting for Lifetime and Hallmark to up the bid

Don't miss UFC Fight Night live from Yuma, Arizona only on the Food Network!

Erik Apple - remember my thread about the Ferrite's buying it back for a billion?

Yep. I’ve been saying it since a few weeks after the buy out and how wme had been doing things. The fertittas will do what they did with the casino shares during the bankruptcy.. buy it back for pennies on the dollar and that dana was the inside man to help that.

You do realize that live UFC fights have actually been on the ION network. 

Memba?

Is this for exclusive rights or combo, like MMALogic reported previously?

If you're doing an endless series of Mighty Mouse fights, you might as well pay 44% of the asking price, as you're getting 44% of the fighters.
