More than 18 years after taking over as president of the UFC, Dana White isn’t going anywhere.

On the same day the UFC announced an agreement to air pay-per-views exclusively on ESPN+, White announced he has signed a seven-year extension to remain the organization’s president.

“We had a five-year deal with (ESPN),” White said, per MMA Fighting. “Now, we have a seven-year deal. And [UFC parent company Endeavor CEO] Ari Emanuel and I just signed a new seven-year deal, too. So we’re here for seven years, ESPN is here for seven years. And the incredible things that we’re gonna work on, I just can’t even tell you how pumped I am for all of this stuff.”
