Big announcements for the UFC and MMA fans everywhere!!!!

UFC President Dana White has signed an extension with the UFC for seven more years. This EPIC News because the UFC is getting bigger and bigger under Dana White. This guy is phenomenal, he went from Tito Ortiz and Chuck Liddell's Manager to buying the UFC with the Fertita brothers back in 2001. In 2016, the UFC was sold for over 4 billion dollars and that is a ridiculous amount consider where the sports started. People did not even consider MMA a sports and it was referred to as a bloodsport. Like all sports, the UFc now have rules, regulations and sanctions. Under the tutelage of President Dana White the UFC became very prominent and produced global stars like Conor McGregor, Ronda Rousey, GSP and Anderson Silva. This sport is continually growing like shows like The Ultimate Fighter and Dana White's Tuesday Contender Series. Under Dana White the UFC gain immense popularity which resulted in a majot TV deal in Asia, Australia and Europe to further expand the sport. Late last year, it was announced that the UFC signed a 1.5 billion dollar deal with ESPN for 5 years. The UFC is now streamed on ESPN+ and broadcasted on ESPN for certain events. Dana White has done an amazing job of growing the UFC to unprecedented heights. With seven more years, I think greater things are coming for UFC fans everywhere and UFC.

Another annouuncement is that Ari Emanuel has also signed a 7 year deal with the UFC. Emanuel is the co-CEO for WME, a entertainment and media agency. Ari is instrumental in partnering with Dana White to run the UFC and bringing Dana's visions to fruition.

The biggest news of the all is that, UFC Pay Per View events will be streamed on ESPN+. The previous deal with ESPN has now been extended for 7 years. ESPN+ is only place consumers can purchase the UFC PPV events. The main card will be streamed on ESPN+ and prelims and early prelims on ESPN or ESPN+. This is phenomenal news fight fans, because President Dana White mentioned that the PPV events could be bundled with the regualar ESPN+ purchase which is $4.99. Also there could be discounts for certain PPV events, which consumers could not get before.

TRIPLE 7 and thats a winner for everyone!!!
