Dana White “When we do land the right deal over in the UK everything is going to be golden over there”

“Every time I get on Twitter or whatever, I see the U.K. fans, ‘They don’t care about us. They don’t care about this market.. Same thing with Ireland. Of course we do.”

“We would love to be with FOX over the U.K.,” he said this past September. “I think that once our deals expire, we will figure it out, and we’ll get that whole U.K./Ireland piece of this thing fixed.”"

“The television deal we want hasn’t been as easy to acquire as we thought it would be,” he said following this past Saturday’s event. “We thought we could get that thing done. If you’d have asked many years ago and said, ‘Do you think you’ll be on FOX before you secure a big deal over here in the U.K.?’ I would have said, ‘There’s no way in hell. We’ll probably get the U.K. deal done first.’

“But it hasn’t happened. We’re still invested in that whole market out there, and we will get it done. We’re not going to give up on it.”

I think that when we do land the right deal over in the U.K., everything is going to be golden over there,” he said. “It’s always the market that’s made the most sense to me other than the U.S. and Mexico when we first bought this thing. It’s been a long, hard battle, and we’re still fighting it.”
