In a sport where so few do, it was good seeing Mark Munoz retire on a win yesterday.

Biggest sale in Sports History.
I thought this was finalized before UFC 198. But good for the Fertittas and Dana White.
Wow. I didnt realize it was bought by the guy Ari Gold from Entourage was based on.
I hope he doesnt fuck this up.

That's not usually the case though. Someone with sells their labour of love / passion project to someone else who just wants it as a part of their profit portfolio. Instead of being just an MMA promotion now, it has to be an ROI on that 4 billion loss, by any means necessary.

Maybe the stand-up rule will come into effect. Electric floor, or giant magnet above the cage. "They've been on the floor for over 8 seconds? Turn on the fuckin' magnet".

"Our sponsor doesn't like violence. So now all matches will be resolved by a moderator who will listen to both sides."

"ICP fans don't understand how the magnet works.... replace it."

He'll probably do a great job. Especially if Dana stays on.
Im sure theyll make that money back and turn profit.

Amanda Nunes successfully defended her title tonight for the first time against Ronda Rousey. Many memes of Rouseys loss are being produced right now and Nunes talked mad shit in broken english, but Rousey still took home $3m with that L compared to Nunes $100k.

Retirement severence, maybe. Because she got bowled. That's probably going to dry up everything too, endorsements, movie roles, etc.
