The rich get richer.

According to a report from Bangor Daily News, Dana White's "Lookin' for a Fight" reality series -- which currently airs on the promotion's YouTube channel and on Fight Pass -- has been picked up by Netflix.

"They bought 16 episodes, eight in this country and eight out of the country. We're going to be doing shows in Russia, Thailand, the (United Kingdom) and a bunch of other countries. We're literally going to go everywhere," said White, who came up with the idea for the show and funded it himself.

The show sees White, Matt Serra and Din Thomas scour the country to attend local mixed martial arts (MMA) events in order to look for new talent while getting into crazy adventures themselves.

"I came up with the concept for it, put the cast together and then we went out and just funded it ourselves to put up on YouTube."

Since the shows debut, the promotion has handed out four contracts, including signing Lightweight star Sage Northcutt and Mickey Gall, who is expected to welcome CM Punk to the Octagon at UFC 203 on September 10, 2016.

And now that the show is going international with the backing of Netflix, as well, expect many more contracts to be handed out.
