Dana White Has No Plans To Buy Bellator MMA

13

Despite buying up almost all of their competition in the past such as PRIDE FC and Strikeforce, UFC President Dana Whites told Ariel Helwani today that the UFC has no plans to ever try and buy Bellator MMA:

“There’s nothing there,” said White to MMAFighting. “If you look at any other company we ended up buying in the past, there was value. There’s no value to that company whatsoever.”

“If you look at Pride, look at all the contracts we got from Pride, all the guys that came over. Look at Pride’s library. Amazing library, with some of the most talented fighters of all times. When we bought WFA, we bought it because Rampage had a contract with them. When we bought Strikeforce, we bought their library. Just the fights we had with Nick Diaz alone were worth buying that company.”
