Tennis players Serena and Venus Williams and Maria Sharapova have become the investors of the organization conducting fights by the mixed rules.
Last summer, a fashion Agency WWE-IMG purchased the UFC for $ 4 billion, and then began to look for investors for the organization.
One of the first, which is quite surprising, the offer landed on the stars of women’s tennis – Maria Sharapova and the Williams sisters.
