    as delusional as tito is sometimee, you gotta give him credit for standing his ground. he was a pioneer of standing up against the company in the name of fighters.

    regardless, I love how real and open Dana White is, no pc bullshit no written speeches, thats very rare in this day and age with internet and everything, to have a president of a company that is so damn open and outspoken

    UFC fighters get paid peanuts. on a Boxing promotion - boxers get paid 70 percent of the revenue- of course then they have to pay their managers and trainers and so on- but they are in the drivers seat- if a ppv makes 1.5 million views- the headline fighters, they ll bring home 5 million each. On a UFC card- which they have every month at the least- the fighters make about 400,000 each on average. the undercard guys make like 50,000. and they still have to pay their trainers, marketing, sparring partners, etc- they even have to pay back the UFC their advances which they get before training camp which pays for transport and hotels, food, etc- so the UFC pays them and then gets paid back- taking a cut.
    nobody , nobody knows the numbers- but its fair to say that the UFC has created a system where they have created a huge middle class of wages- but boxing is all upper class or lower class. in boxing ur making 50 million or nothing, but have huge leverage, and in UFC everyone gets something, but not much. personally i think the problem with that is- that the top guys don't get paid what their true value is. especially with the reebok deal- in any other sport, the 10th best known fighter- say a Diaz, or a dos santos would have endorsements, and be making 8 figures a year, easy.
    in the UFC they're making about half a million a fight. not much for what they're bringing in. the biggest joke is TUF- that show makes a killing, that show makes like millions upon millions a season, and in backend repeats and so on- and the winner , and only the winner gets a six figure contract? its a joke, while all the other contestants basically sacrifice their lives to make nothing.
    thats the biggest problem with a monopoly- the UFC can always say u don't like it - go away- and Dana will always ring his old line of - how bad do u want it- how much do u want the glory, to be a fighter- to be a superstar- its exploitation. its code for- we re gonna underpay everyone- and let these guys kill each other till theres one left and pay that guy a shit load.
    I like Dana, he s a brilliant businessman, and shrewd guy- and he's made a great product- but compared to the NBA, NFL and NHL- their guys don't get treated very well at all. its possible for adidas to sponsor the NBA but also have deals with shoe companies- everyone knows that endorsements are 80 percent of an athletes income- to take that away sucks. these guys aren't all stars- for most of them - its get in- fight for 10 years- try and get a headline show- or a title shot- make as much money as u can- and get out. so their window to make money is very limited and short- and hard- so they should have as much opportunity to maximise it- and not be leveraged into having to take bad deals. the only two fighters that have leverage are ronda and mcgregor- they've become bigger than the show- but the game needs a union or a representative union to bind them together like the players association in all the other major sports. otherwise UFC will go down the same shit road that boxing did- where its basically a mob game - ruled by a few greedy pigs.
