-There will be a bunch of idiots with power wanting to run the ufc their way.

-If you thought this wasn't a true sports league before, now it will be complete sports entertainment.

-Anybody saying anything or acting in a non p.c. way will have to get fired because that's what public companies do.

Carl Sonnen - I knew that's where all this was going. No wonder they are continually fagging the UFC up with chick fights and other epic gheyness. Too bad the old gladiator vibe is gone. Maybe this will open up room for a competitor. I feel sorry for anyone who buys this turd stock except maybe at an extreme discount during a crash. Maybe.

yup...

I bought IFL stock and never even got my stock certs when I asked for them.

No way am I going to waste money on UFC stock with it's current owners and the direction they are taking.

This is a sport and I refuse to support it moving away from that.

They may have a successful IPO as the bankers and some investors will find it "sexy" to be affiliated with "Hollywood" and the "UFC"... 

But I do know that the UFC side was Grossly overvalued.   Would need to look over the agency side's numbers to see if the whole thing is a turd or not.

Why?

whats changed, they’ve done everything they’ve can to turn a profit since the day it was formed so what exactly is going to change? If anything this will open the books for fighters to see how little they are making and demand more.

I wonder the reasoning for this.  Raise money to pay debt?

Huh? Wasn’t the ufc valuation 5bil? So either ufc value has declined or endeavor wasn’t worth much relatively speaking.

Things I miss from the UFC:
Goldy
Stitch
Burt
Gladiator Intro
Stacked cards
New Years and SuperBowl level events
Fighters wearing gear that they want to
Not 1000 interim titles
Title defenses with some level or regularity
Managable number of events
When TUF mattered

so much more...
