White: The UFC will never go ‘public’

Monday, February 18, 2013

“I never say never, but I’d have to say never. I don’t think so, I don’t think we’d do it. I’ve haven’t seen too many great experiences with going public and I just don’t think this is one of those businesses that we could really run the way we wanted to if we were (public). The thing we’ve said since day one about going public is, nobody believed in this thing.

When we first bought it, started to build it, nobody believed in it. I’m talking about the business world, and now all of a sudden I’m going to take advice from these guys on Wall Street who never believed in it in the first place? I don’t see it, not while I’m here anyway.”
