Ari Emanuel talks about potential partners for the upcoming UFC broadcast rights deal, stating that there are many interested buyers in the market.

Endeavor CEO Ari Emanuel is already considering the UFC’s next broadcasting rights deal. The promotion currently has an agreement with ESPN until 2025, with an annual worth of over $300 million dollars, which gives the channel exclusive rights to all pay-per-view events.

During a recent appearance at the Morgan Stanley Technology, Media, and Telecom conference, Emanuel discussed the UFC’s upcoming broadcasting rights and mentioned that while they have a great relationship with ESPN, other factors could play a role. The CEO is confident about finding a new partner as there are multiple potential buyers in the marketplace, such as Amazon and Apple Plus, who have recently secured broadcasting rights with the NFL and the MLS, respectively.

Emanuel stated, “I think it’s going to be a positive outcome for both parties but there’s a lot of buyers out there”.
