According to President of the UFC Dana White, 2019 was the most successful year ever for the UFC on record, this resulting in huge distribution checks for all investors.

“Kobe got a distribution from the UFC the Wednesday before the incident, and he was so pumped up and excited and he said what everybody always says, ‘I wish I had invested more,’” said White.

Bryant also had an ownership stake in Body Armor, the UFC’s official energy drink.

White also revealed that the UFC plans to honor Kobe Saturday, at UFC 247 in Houston, TMZ Sports reports.
