UFC Performance Institutes are some of the most advanced training institutes in all sports.

Dana White is looking to make the UFC a global sport

MMA was nowhere near the height that it is today when the UFC started as a promotion. However, over time it has caught up with other mainstream sports in terms of popularity. White and his team deserve all the credit for that.

Also, the meteoric rise of Conor McGregor was a big reason behind the UFC’s status as a promotion. The Irishman was nothing short of phenomenal during his earlier days in the company. He recorded 8 out of the top 10 pay-per-views so fr in the history of the sport.
