Low fighter pay has been a huge issue in mixed martial arts for several years now, but if you ask the UFC President, it’s not a real issue and it’s all just a creation of the media. According to Dana White, fighters aren’t really underpaid, the media just convinced them that they are.


“You have these scumbags out there that know nothing about the business telling all the fighters ‘oh you’re all being underpaid. You’re not being paid enough money. You’re not this’ — it goes on every f—king day!” White ranted on Travis Browne’s podcast.

“Every media member that talks about fighter pay is a scumbag who is basically just out there to get attention, because they literally know nothing about the business or the pay or how any of this shit works,” he said. “It’s all part of the game.

Being the company husband seemed to work out for him landing these hard hitting interviews.
Sometimes it bothers me that guys like Browne and Schaub can be so unlikable but tough enough that most people can’t really do shit about it.

He's just mad that he can't pay fighters dirt cheap wages anymore without getting called out on his bullshit.
