Show Money 26: UFC, Bellator, ONE Championship and PFL finances and television deals

The Show Money crew is back to spew their sometimes educated, sometimes random theories on the only show exclusively dedicated to the business of MMA.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

The Show Money crew is Paul the economist, Jason the lawyer, and John the financial analyst and the man who knows everyone and everything in MMA. In today’s episode – filmed Sunday night before the UFC-ESPN PPV announcement – the guys discuss the recent rash MMA broadcast deals as well as promotional finances. They’re scheduled to film another Show Money this coming Sunday to cover the UFC’s new PPV exclusivity with ESPN, so look out for that next week sometime.

For those interested in specific parts, here are the start times for each segment:

  • UFC – 0:36
  • Bellator – 15:34
  • PFL and other things – 24:00
  • Back to the UFC – 33:08
  • ONE Championship and other things – 37:04
  • TV deal predictions (filmed Sunday night before the UFC-ESPN PPV announcement) – 52:00
