The UFC website announced today that Lorenzo Fertitta,
part owner of the UFC, will be making MMA his full time job. Ive always been
a believer that this was going to be the biggest sport on the planet, he said.
Thats what our goal is and thats where were taking it. He will be leaving his post at the Station
Casinos, to concentrate on the UFC, while the other majority owner, his older
brother Frank, will concentrate on the UFCs full time.
The UFC has grown exponentially since the Fertittas
purchased the company in 2000, and the hobby that once ate a reported 44
million of the profits from the Station Casinos, has turned the corner to
become one a major sporting success of the world.
