Don’t hold your breath UFC fighter pay will change anytime soon

Aug 25, 2021

Another UFC event, another fighter saying on mic they are broke. This time the No. 3 ranked middleweight. What do you think has to happen to fix this: mass walkoffs? No other sport has their best performers mention how financially destitute they are like the UFC does…then again most other sports have unions. The UFC / Endeavour aren’t going to change their ways obviously so it’s the talent that will have to take action, right? This is kind of how every union eventually forms. – Redshak D.
