MMA Payout has the juicy details on this rumor:
In what would fit the bill as an industry changing announcement, MMAPayout.com has learned that Bertelsmann Media, a German based international entertainment company, is rumored to have had advanced discussions about acquiring a controlling interest in Zuffa.
Bertelsmann is a publicly traded company with a market cap in excess of $1 billion euros. The multinational media company owns Random House and a 50% stake in Sony BMG Music among a host of other media holdings. Sources have told MMAPayout.com that the company’s interest in acquiring Zuffa dates back to last fall.
And the plot thickens. Will this be Dana White’s announcement? Only time will tell and tomorrow can’t get here soon enough to put this speculation nonsense to rest.
