UFC president Dana White gave a statement where he was talking about the benefits of ESPN deal, and the possibilities of The Ultimate Fighter in the future. UFC has recently made a tremendous deal with ESPN. The company will pay 1.5 billion dollars for five years but there is still a part of the population who believe Dana White didn\u2019t do a good job. You can\u2019t ignore the fact that Fox offered tremendous 200 million dollars for the portion of programming. Anyway, Dana White defends the contract heavily. Better don\u2019t try challenging him and pointing to the bad sides or he will blow you away with his arguments. He has released an interesting statement ahead of UFC Liverpool: (via bloodyelbow.com) \u201cThat\u2019s what the idiots are always going to do. \u2018Is it good, is it bad?\u2019 Our last deal was $116 million a year. This one is $300 million. If you can\u2019t figure out that that\u2019s good, get outta here. I\u2019ve been in Maine blowing my brains out for three days celebrating. That\u2019s how good it is.\u201d Dana White also emphasized the fact that the number of UFC shows grows as the time goes by, and also had an argument against media members that barely wait to criticize the deal. \u201cThat\u2019s exactly right: 42 shows. I have the ability to make some original content for those guys too, and it\u2019s going to be awesome. ESPN wouldn\u2019t cover us. Now we\u2019re on ESPN. Anybody who doesn\u2019t think this is a win, just shut up. Stop covering the sport if you think this isn\u2019t a win.\u201d In the end, Dana had something to add to Fight Pass and The Ultimate Fighter. \u201cFight Pass will be the destination where the entire library is, and you can watch whatever fight you want too or whatever other content we have on there,\u201d White said. \u201cSo that\u2019ll be the same. And this ESPN deal is US. So, Fight Pass is the rest of the world.\u201d ... \u201cWe don\u2019t know yet. We\u2019re coming up on the latest season of The Ultimate Fighter. We don\u2019t know. It might be the last one. 13 years, The Ultimate Fighter has gone. It\u2019s incredible.\u201d As soon as the 2019 starts, UFC will be moved to another broadcasting destination. What do you think, did Dana White made a good choice with ESPN? Were you previously happy with Fox Sports?
