    Wow. $4bn sale for a company purchased for millions.

    Was a shock to see this piece of news and it seems one of the buyers is WME, which is a promotional company linked to Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson but amazing business. Right move to keep Dana White involved as he is the figurehead of the company but it seems the new owners will focus more on the outside the Octagon sort of things but leave the match-making to Dana? I can't imagine they'll want to get tied down with that and let Dana get on with it as usual. Surprised it hasn't made bigger news in the UK (couldn't find it on the BBC website and doubt SSN will do anything on it)

    Dana White made a killing on this sale but he deserves it. He did a great job with the sport
