“Here’s the big rumor Dana: Station Casinos is filing for bankruptcy and the UFC is going right down with them,” Carmichael Dave asked sarcastically.

“(Laughs) Right. Yup,” White began to respond. “Station Casinos and the UFC have nothing to do with each other. They never have. They’ve always been kept very separate… Right now in Las Vegas (and) all over the world, companies are in trouble right now.

I'd heard rumors, but beyond the fact that Station Casinos is expected to go belly up there is nothing to worry about.

From a historical perspective, Station Casinos have been very important to MMA. Without them, UFC would not have been able to run in the red for as long as it did after Zuffa bought the UFC.

With all the talk of Stations Casinos potentially going under, there was talk of the Fertitas selling the UFC to bail out their other companies.

I'm glad it's all been confirmed as idle gossip though.

I heard stuff about the Casino's but never any rumor, linking casino's to the UFC.

As along as all is well.

What people forget is that Lorenzo has now almost completely focused his attention on managing the UFC and not on Station Casino, even before the major fall out of the latter company. It's very clear that UFC is doing just fine on its own which allows for Lorenzo to turn his full attention to it.
