UFC president Dana White is once again under fire for over UFC salaries.
Just last week, White told QB that UFC fighters would never get a raise as long as he’s with the company.
“Fighters always want to make more money,”.“Boxing has absolutely been destroyed because of money and all the things that go on. It’s never gonna happen while I’m here. Believe me, these guys get paid what they’re supposed to get paid. They eat what they kill. They get a percentage of the pay-per-view buys and the money is spread out amongst all the fighters.”
After Saturday’s UFC San Diego, the California State Athletic Commission released the salaries of all the fighters on the card.
