UFC's notorious private financial records may become public in 2019.
This is because the parent company Endeavor allegedly pushes ahead with plans to become a listed company according to Wall Street Journal . Endeavor is likely to file confidential paperwork with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) later this year.
The prospect of Endeavor and, as an extension of the UFC, the public has been in the conversation ever since Zuffa, LLC sold the company to Endeavor – formerly WME-IMG – at an estimated $ 4 billion in 201
The UFC has always held its economy close to the chest. Base Fighter Pay, match night bonuses, estimated pay-per-view numbers and live event gate revenue are often published, but it's about it.
However, if Endeavor becomes public, they will be legally obliged to publish financial information. The listed companies must publish financial status and operating profit, management compensation, according to inc.com. There is as yet no confirmation as to whether Endeavor should report specifically about the UFC's internal economic activities, or if they only need to report on its overall economy. Shareholders can probably ask themselves.
If the reports are true, Conor McGregor might just get its share of the UFC. Probably not what he had in mind himself.
