That’s a bold statement, but one that UFC president Dana White made when he and UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta sat down for an interview with The Wall Street Journal.
Among other things, the two discussed the UFC’s place in the sports world.
Is the UFC really going head to head with the NFL? White and Fertitta believe so… when you compare the two on a global basis, not confined to the sports community in the United States.
“We’re neck-and-neck with soccer,” said White. “Soccer isn’t huge here in the United States, but all over the world it is. The only other thing that could work is fighting.”
