Show Money 28: UFC PPV Buys, Endeavor Buyout of PBC, ONE Championship

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 Bloody Elbow MMA financial analyst, and the man who knows about everyone and everything in the history of MMA.

In today’s episode, the guys discuss the UFC’s recent PPV buys under ESPN+ exclusivity as well as the news that its revenues declined and debt was restructured. There are rumors Endeavor may buy Premier Boxing Champions (PBC). How would that even work and what might Endeavor do with it? We close the show with our thoughts on ONE Championship’s new, updated agent certification program.

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

  • UFC PPV buys and recent financials – 0:50
  • Endeavor possibly buying the PBC – 33:10
  • ONE’s agent certification program – 58:00
