UFC Aiming For Big Money In TV Negotiations
Following a sale of assets to Disney, Fox may be looking to utilize that money towards more broadcast rights heading into 2019, mainly the UFC.
Per the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer, negotiations are on-going between FOX and the UFC as they look to retain the rights heading into the next few years. Meltzer reported in his newsletter, that the network has increased its offer to $250 million dollars a year, from its initial offer to $200 million. This move would be a significant boost from the reported $136 million the UFC is to gain from FOX in 2018.
