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. 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.
This weekends Fight Night card that will be headlined by Neil Magney vs Kelvin Gastelum has it's 13th and final bout added to the lineup. Polo Reyes (3-1) vs Cesar Arzamendia (7-1) will square off on the 2nd bout of the night on the early prelims. You can check out the action on UFC's Fight Pass.
The Albuquerque City Council has proclaimed November “Holly Holm Month” in celebration of the popular fighter’s upset victory over Ronda Rousey in the UFC 193 headliner.
Congrats to Holly. Pretty funny.
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.
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.
Dong Hyun Kim has found a new dance partner for UFC Fight Night on Nov. 28 after losing his original opponent in a fight card shuffle.
Ultimate Fighting Championship over the weekend announced that the South Korean welterweight will take on Californian Dominic Waters in a three-round tilt at Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Seoul.
Kim’s original opponent, Jorge Masvidal, was pulled from their matchup to face Benson Henderson in the show’s main event after Thiago Alves came up injured.
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.
On Saturday night, 56,000 Australian fans witnessed the (literal) collapse of superstar Ronda Rousey when Holly Holm landed a thunderous head kick that separated the champ from her senses in the second round of the main event.
It was a surreal fight to experience. For the first time in her career, Rousey appeared lost and confused as she charged at Holm. She was outclassed in the striking department and was unable to take the fight to the ground on command. That signaled the beginning of the end for the former champion.
Rousey's coach, Edmond Tarverdyan later explained that Rousey simply followed the gameplan set ahead of the fight.
The woman with some of the best hands in MMA is having trouble keeping them healthy.
Joanna Jedrzejczyk's manager Tiago Okamura told MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani on Sunday that the UFC women's strawweight champion has a broken right hand and will need surgery.

The UFC doesn’t usually make fights on fight night.
But in the case of the spectacular upset seen at UFC 193, the promotion might make an exception.
UFC President Dana White said an immediate rematch between newly minted champ Holly Holm (10-0 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Ronda Rousey (12-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) “makes a lot of sense,” though, of course, he hedged with the usual disclaimer that he doesn’t do instant matchmaking.
White made it clear, however, that Holm’s head-kick knockout of the UFC star has upended the women’s bantamweight division.
“It changes a lot of things now,” he said. “The (potential Cristiane) ‘Cyborg’ (Justino) fight, some other stuff we were working on.”
The Ultimate Fighting Championship is targeting Jorge Masvidal to replace the injured Thiago Alves and face Benson Henderson at UFC Fight Night on Nov. 28.
Multiple outlets reported the new headliner on Saturday. TalkMMA first brought word via Twitter that Alves suffered a rib injury and would have to withdraw from the bout on Friday evening. Masvidal was originally scheduled to meet Dong Hyun Kim in a featured welterweight clash; it is currently unclear if Kim will be given a replacement opponent.
Ben Henderson has a new opponent for his upcoming fight in South Korea.
UFC veteran Thiago Alves was forced out of the five-round welterweight bout on Nov. 28 with a broken rib, and the former lightweight champion will now take on Jorge Masvidal in the main event in Seoul, multiple sources close to the situation told MMAFighting.com. Twitter user @TalkMMA first reported Alves’ injury.
