'I’ve been working with these guys a long time, I know the value of what they have. I’m not surprised at all at the price tag,' he says. When he asked what the sale would mean for UFC Gym, his contact at UFC 'affirmed that it’s all systems go. What I told the team is, it’s business as usual. This increases the scope of our opportunity.'"
