During a new interview UFC President Dana White revealed that he’s going to be with the company for at least the next decade.
White was talking on LVSportsBiz’s Guerilla Cross Radio about potentially getting back in business with the Fertitta brothers at some point when he mentioned his new deal.
“I would love to be back in business with them and do something,” White said. “Obviously, I’m very busy and very focused over here. Financially, I’d jump in with those guys. I just signed a new 10-year deal with the UFC, so in ten years, I can do something with them every day.”
White then talked more about recent rumors that he and the Feritta’s might be looking to buy an NFL team.
“TMZ just got Lorenzo [Fertitta] the other day in New York, and Lorenzo confirmed that they are looking at NFL teams. I heard the Panthers, that the Broncos were available, that the Chargers might be up for sale. We’ll have to see how this plays out but yeah, if they buy a team, I’m in. I will partner up with them.”
White also revealed that the trio also tried to buy an NBA team, believed to be the Houston Rockets, not so long ago.
“We had looked at something a couple years ago, not in the NFL. In the NBA, we looked at a team and we got outbid, me and the brothers.”
Coincidentally, it just so happens that the Rockets were bought by the Fertitta brother’s own cousin, Tilman Fertitta.
