What investors are being told about UFC earnings (PART 3)
What do we know about the financial health of the UFC? We know the company has seen its revenues rise steadily over the years, from $4.6 million in 2001, the first year under Zuffa, LLC's management, to $522 million last year. At the same time, we have seen the company's long-term debts also rise, from zero bank debt in those early years to its current $535 million debt load. Neither debt nor revenue tells us much though about its current financial condition. Are they profitable, and if so how profitable? Are they solvent and able to meet their obligations? Without more data, revenue and debt do little to answer these questions. All are very interesting and well worth the read.

Floyd Mayweather Jr. offers to help Ronda Rousey with her Boxing
Floyd Mayweather Jr. is a lot of things. One thing he hasn’t been known for is his generosity. But people change, apparently, and now Floyd sounds like he’s on Team Ronda Rousey, despite the two jabbing at each other in the media for the past couple years. Seems legit.

Joe Rogan Podcast: "Cyborg would make 135 if she cut off her d#$k"
Former Strikeforce and current Invicta FC featherweight champion Cris Justino has been the victim of her fair share of body shaming and gross gender-related jokes and comments. Most recently, Joe Rogan and fellow comedian Tony Hinchcliffe made a joke in a podcast that featured UFC President Dana White about Cyborg having male genitals. They followed up by suggesting that she could cut down to bantamweight if she relieved herself it.

Holly Holm's endorsement of company linked to banned supplements questioned
When Holly Holm knocked out Ronda Rousey on Saturday night at UFC 193, one of the most conspicuous congratulations came from Intel Pharma — not for what it said, but for what it is. The Texas-based company, one of Holm’s sponsors, sells supplements advertised as containing substances that are banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). UFC’s independent administrator of its doping protocol is the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), which adheres to WADA rules and regulations.

UFC champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk reportedly heading to surgery for broken hand
It appears injury woes could be the only thing holding back Joanna Jedrzejczyk from dominating the UFC strawweight division for the foreseeable future. Jedrzejczyk (11-0 MMA, 5-0 UFC) reportedly broke her right hand for the second time in as many fights when she battered challenger Valerie Letourneau (8-4 MMA, 3-1 UFC) en route to a unanimous-decision win in this past Saturday’s UFC 193 pay-per-view co-headliner. The reigning 115-pound champ will undergo surgery in the near future to repair the damage, which is not in the same spot as her previous break, according to a report from MMAFighting.com.
