Well I wish I had millions to invest. This company is only going to grow bigger. With the right businessmen involved (Read that as: someone who will let the UFC keep doing business the way they've been doing business) this could lead to huge profits.

Hey Dana, I've got a couple thousand dollars I'm willing to put up!

Mark Cuban sounds about right. He has MMA Tonight and shows a ton of fights. He's smart and the media loves him. It would be a sound move by the UFC

I don't understand this at all. Are they really that hard up for money? It smells like a publicity stunt.

Cuban and McMahon couldn't not be involved in the business aspect of things, their egos would just get in the way. The investor that interests the UFC shareholders right now (according to the interview) would basically just be giving the UFC some cash and collecting the interest. They would not in any way be involved in decision making. They would be interested but they are not looking....yet. I say yet because I do think that to grow to the NFL size that they aspire to be it would take a huge increase in liquid assets invested properly into marketing, advertising, and a package with a big network such as HBO (but not them either because they would want to run the show).

This turned out to be bullshit and I'm not surprised. I knew it just didn't make sense.
