The Yahoo Sports team has been watching the battle between the UFC and UFC President Dana White over how best to get UFC content to its audience.
This is why it is not surprising that White is making a very strong argument for a partnership between Yahoo Sports and the UFC.
We will not be fighting for you.
Dana White, UFC President White is the latest UFC employee to make a very vocal case for a deal with the UFC as the company continues to suffer losses in the ratings war.
As we wrote previously, the UFC has seen its own problems as well as those of other companies, like CBS Sports and ESPN, that are seeing similar issues.
At this point, there is a very real chance that a deal could be struck between the two entities.
The UFC’s current viewership numbers are very low.
According to the latest Nielsen ratings, the number of UFC fights is actually down about 7% from the same period last year.
It was also the case last year when the UFC’s ratings were lower than they were in 2016.
For 2017, however, the company is still posting impressive numbers and the company has been able to draw the lion’s share of its viewership.
In addition, there are a lot of potential fights that could potentially get aired on the network.
While the UFC is still battling with the issue of cable TV contracts, it has been recently rumored that the UFC may be moving to a pay per view model.
So, the possibility of a potential partnership with Yahoo Sports to bring some of the UFC fight content to Yahoo is certainly enticing for the UFC, and the two parties could end in a very interesting and mutually beneficial way.
With that being said, this is not going to be the last time that we will hear the UFCs “fight” theme.
White is currently under pressure to do something about the number one ranking that the company was earning on its main channel.
Even though the company may be having problems with the numbers, the ratings are still very high and there is still a lot that is going on with the company.
However, in order for a possible deal to happen, the current UFC-Yahoo partnership will need to be done in a way that will give Yahoo’s fans a good reason to tune in to watch the fights that are currently airing on the networks.
If this deal is not done in such a way, it would be detrimental to the UFC in the long run and it could even be a hindrance to any potential future partnerships that are being explored.
There are a few other companies that could also benefit from the deal and that could include ESPN and CBS Sports.
ESPN has been fighting hard to get exclusive access to the Ultimate Fighter reality show and a potential Yahoo deal could benefit both companies if the two companies could have the opportunity to bring exclusive UFC content on the platform.
CBS Sports, on the other hand, has been struggling with the ratings issues that are plaguing its network.
If there is any way that the two could work together, it will likely have the benefit of the content that is currently being aired on both platforms, but the company still has a lot to work on in order to get those numbers back to where they should be.
Yahoo is not the only company that could benefit from a potential deal with White, and it is important for Yahoo to not let this deal get in the way of any future partnerships.
Hopefully, the potential partnership between the companies is just the beginning of an interesting partnership that could be fruitful.
