Dana White is once again firing back at critics who are mad at the UFC over fighter pay.
During a fan Q&A on GQ, Dana was asked why does he think people get asked about UFC fighters being underpaid and he went off.
“You always have something to b*tch about, I guess … these guys get paid what they’re supposed to get paid.”
“Listen, there aren’t too many things you can talk s—t about the UFC about,”. “If you look at what we’ve done with the business in the last 22 years, it’s incredible. Never been done ever, the things that we’ve done in the fight business. You always have to have something to b—ch about, I guess.
“Fighters always want to make more money,” “Boxing has absolutely been destroyed because of money and all the things that go on. [A change in fighter pay is] 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 (PPV) buys and the money is spread out amongst all the fighters.”
It didn’t take long for Jake Paul to see White’s quote and slam the UFC president over his comments.
No major sports organization pays its athletes as poorly as Dana White & UFC. If u don’t see that then you are one of Dana’s sheeps.
They keep talking about selling out 21 events in a row but never talking about raising fighter pay, giving them healthcare & fair revenue split. https://t.co/ZdtV0MsrXk
