UFC Denies That The Company Has Been Sold

The UFC is denying Monday’s report from Jeremy Botter at FloCombat.com that a bid has been accepted for the sale of the organization. They also initially denied that the company was even for sale in the first place.

UFC officials sent an internal memo to employees following the report to reiterate that point (below via MMAJunkie.com):

“A report today by FloCombat.com indicating that the company has been sold is false. This follows other false speculation in the press recently.

“Such misrepresentation of facts in the media negatively impacts our business, staff members and athletes. We have instructed our attorneys to investigate and take all appropriate legal actions against the parties publishing and contributing to these false stories.

“With International Fight Week and the historic UFC 200 rapidly approaching, we look forward to once again delivering a series of events that our fans won’t soon forget. We appreciate your hard work, diligence and commitment, and thank you for your focus as we continue to take the sport to new heights.”
