ESPN has seized control of the UFC’s television rights from FOX Sports. Variety reported late Tuesday night that the Disney-owned network, which already  secured the digital rights to UFC programming , will broadcast 30 events total per year under a new deal worth about $300 million annually for five years, equaling $1.5 billion. While that’s about double the current seven-year deal with FOX, which paid about $100 million annually, it’s still well below the $$400-450 million that Endeavor – known as WME-IMG when it acquired UFC for $4 billion in July 2016 – was seeking in negotiations for UFC TV rights. When Endeavor acquired its longtime streaming partner, NeuLion, for $250 million, there was talk that the UFC could bypass networks altogether to broadcast its most desirable non-PPV fights
