It was recently reported that UFC president Dana White had signed a new 10-year contract extension. During a scrum with reporters, including MMAWeekly.com, at the recent launch of the UFC Apex facility, he clarified those reports, saying he had actually signed a seven-year extension.
White had originally inked a five-year deal with WME-IMG after the company purchased the UFC for more than $4 billion. But now, White has inked a seven-year extension to continue running the company that he’s been at the helm of for the better part of two decades.
“I can’t imagine being out of the game. I love this so much. I don’t know what else I would do. This is what I love to do. At the end of the day, I have been the vision of this thing for the last almost 20 years and I’m not done yet. There’s so much more to do.” – Dana White
