The parent company of the UFC is expected to go public later this year. The Wall Street Journal reports that Endeavor is expected to file confidential paperwork with the SEC for an IPO (initial public offering) by the end of the year. An IPO is an offering where a company offers shares to insititutional and individual investors, which means that the company is selling shares to the public for its first time.

Endeavor has been rumored to go public since the company bought the UFC in 2016. The public offering would mean big things for the UFC in terms of transparency on their financials, as financial disclosures are required by law for a publicly-traded company. Endeavor is currently valued at about $4 billion, but the valuation would likely go up once the company goes public.
