Hollywood superstar Mark Wahlberg once offered to sell his share in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) to former two-division UFC champion Conor McGregor. However, it would appear that the offer is now off the table.
Mark Wahlberg, like a selection of Hollywood celebrities, purchased a share in the world’s most famous mixed martial arts promotion. Since then, Wahlberg took a liking to “Notorious.”
The Ireland native took the world of mixed martial arts by storm when he knocked out Jose Aldo for the featherweight title in only three seconds, eventually following up the performance with a finish over Eddie Alvarez for the lightweight belt.
McGregor has voiced an interest in becoming a partial owner of the company, with Wahlberg quickly responding to the news by offering to sell his share. Speaking to TMZ Sports, Wahlberg has since come forward to claim that he no longer has an interest in selling his part of the UFC to “Notorious.”
When asked if he is willing to sell his share to the Ireland native, Wahlberg responded:
“I need my piece, man. We just got a big TV deal with ESPN and everything else. Cmon, man. We are making it happen.”
