First Lorenzo Fertitta, then Joe Silva, and now Dave Sholler. That’s right, folks, the UFC executive exodus continues, with the UFC’s public relations head jumping ship to work for the Philadelphia 76ers (which is apparently some sort of basketball team).
This is, of course, nothing really that crazy. The UFC was just sold, and whenever a company gets new owners, personnel changes are inevitable. It’s also pretty normal for someone to leave one job for another. What makes this notable is that Sholler has always been pretty visible in his role – remember when Daniel Cormier and Jon Jones had that brawl at a press conference? It was Sholler who jumped between them and, consequently, went flying.
Anyway, the times they are a-changing.
