Ben Affleck, Adam Levine Among 23 Celebrities Who Now Own UFC
UFC has some new owners, and they’re going to be pretty familiar to most people.
When WME-IMG purchased UFC in July for $4 billion, there were close to two dozen celebrities who were secretly part of the deal. The news is just coming out now, but as it turns out, the 23 celebrities who have purchased a stake in the company include late night talk show hosts, Oscar winners, Grammy winners, and professional athletes. It’s pretty crazy that this was kept secret for as long as it was, considering the star power of some of the names on this list. Check out the 23 names below:

Apparently, each celebrity was required to invest a minimum of $250,000 in order to acquire an ownership stake in the company. These celebrities were initially approached about investing because they were among the fans who most frequently asked for tickets to UFC events. Needless to say, they won’t have to worry about being approved for comped tickets now.
