According to UFC President Dana White, it’s only a matter of time before UFC owners Lorenzo Fertitta and Frank Fertitta buy an NFL franchise.
White addressed the rumors about the Fertitta brothers buying the Oakland Raiders and moving the team to Las Vegas, Nevada, during his appearance on “The Jim Rome Show.”
“Here’s the thing — as you know you can’t own an NFL team if you’re involved with casinos. So if they were really making a serious move at the Raiders, they’d be selling Station Casinos not the UFC,” White said on Friday.
White continued, “But it is 100-percent a fact, they are hardcore football fans and I promise you one day the Fertitta brothers will own an NFL team. No doubt about it.”
