ESPN’s Darren Rovell has been all over WME-IMG’s purchase of the UFC. Back in May, Rovell was one of the first to report on the UFC’s potential sale.
Dana White denied the report and basically called Rovell a liar at the time.
The UFC is not for sale,” “The ESPN story is overblown. Darren Rovell is not a fan of facts. His facts could not be further off.”
Rovell was eventually vindicated when the UFC sold for nearly $4 billion after UFC 200.
Now, Rovell is reporting that WME-IMG is unhappy with the UFC and that the sale has gone sour.
