UFC President Dana White won’t be leaving his role with the company any time soon.
White today revealed that he’s signed a new seven-year deal with UFC parent company Endeavor that will keep him as president of the leading MMA organization.
He shared the news in an interview with Megan Olivi discussing the promotion’s contract extension with ESPN and decision to shift all pay-per-view events to ESPN+ through 2025.
“Ari Emanuel and I just signed a new seven year deal,” said. “So we’re here for seven years, ESPN’s here for seven years and the incredible things that we’re going to work on, I just can’t even tell you how pumped I am for all of this stuff.”
White could’ve potentially parted ways with the UFC in 2016 when there was a transfer in ownership from the Fertitta brothers to Endeavor for a price tag of more than $ 4 billion.
Although his longtime partners had left the company, White opted to stay put by signing a five-year contract. He’s got a new deal now, though, and as White today told MMA Junkie, there are big things on the horizon.
