DW: Expect Two TV Deals, 31 UFC Cards, Over One Billion Homes In 2011
UFC President Dana White gave a look into the UFC's future during the UFC 123 weekend, telling the media that he expects big things to happen over the next year:
"Weâ€™re working on two deals right now, in the next few months, that Iâ€™m very confident weâ€™ll get done. Weâ€™ll be in over a billion homes worldwide on television. What does that mean for the sport in the next three years, let alone five or ten?"
"A lot of people donâ€™t realize, right now, weâ€™re in a half a billion homes worldwide. Weâ€™re in 175 different countries. Weâ€™re pretty big right now. I envision it being much bigger. I think weâ€™re gonna be bigger than everything."
White also gave insight into how many UFC cards fans can look forward to seeing next year:
"Weâ€™ll probably do around 30, 31 fights next year"
