UFC President Dana White will stay on as President once the new ownership group takes over. White owned 9% of the UFC before it was sold to WME-IMG and other outside investors for $4 billion, which most likely netted him $360 million. It is not known how much ownership Dana White will retain after the largest acquisition in sports history.
ESPN is reporting that Dana White’s new contract gives him 9% of future profits. In an interview with CNN last year Lorenzo Fertitta said that the UFC made $600 million in revenue. Based on some speculation done it is estimated that the UFC makes a $200 million profit a year. The contract is set to last for five years and given logical estimations will create an annual salary for Dana White in the realm of $18 million.
