    Sports is a world built on cliches. Everyone is ‘giving it 110%,’ ‘proving their doubters wrong,’ ‘hustling 24/7,’ and on and on. But more than stock phrases, it’s also a world where past narratives are repeated over and over. Prospects rise, former stars stumble, underdogs mount improbable comebacks, and champions dominate.

    One of the more tragic, and longest running narratives in sports, however, is that of the successful athlete who finds themselves as a newly minted millionaire—only to blow their sudden wealth on the trappings of a high class lifestyle. Unfortunately, that sounds something like the…

    I wonder if the UFC offers fighters access to financial advisers like other leagues do? I think that would be something that they should do, as a courtesy, if they're not already. Help these guys and girls better understand how to better manage their money, invest for the future, etc.

    Woodley has a 4 year degree. Can't he figure out how to manage his money better? Does it always have to be somebody else's fault that you don't learn life skills that you need?

    "You work hard for it – and I didn’t get there by accident (because I was busting my ass) – but nobody taught me finance. “Everybody taught me 1+1 is 2. That’s math. That ain’t finance. That ain’t wealth, that ain’t investing, that ain’t saving, that ain’t tax. That’s basically: you made money and, fucking, you spend it." -Tyron

    So stop making crappy rap music and get a book or take an online course on money management.

    Don't they make them go to financial seminars? Isn't that what Al got in trouble for skipping? Maybe I am misremembering

    Woodley is making himself into a stereotype. Another one of his problems is that he doesn't fight often enough due to injuries and contract disputes and all that.

    Remove the leeches, fight 2 or 3 time a year and stop backing into the cage

    Al Iaquinta got in trouble because he was sick and didn't fly out to a required financial seminar, but they saw pictures of him at the beach. But the beach is not far from his home. Wantagh literally has a sign calling itself "the gateway to Jones Beach". I have passed it a bunch of times myself. We live on an island, and he lives in an area we call "the south shore", because it's on the south shore.

    I know he blew a lot on "experiences" but I think he can sell some of his cars and jewelry and maybe his second house before we start his gofundme.

    Even if you have never learned about finance you have surely heard stories of these athletes spending too much of their money . It is a shame.

    he wrestled at Missouri, so he probably has a Communication degree or something like "Modern Western Cinema".

    these guys also surround themselves with Yes Men, even their financial advisers. Then the IRS shows up 3 years later and points out that the $100k you wrote off is actually taxable, and you owe them 3 years of back taxes and fines.

    And the bedazzled pendant keychain of your alma mater that you bought for $600k has a melt value of $50k.

    basically he was being unrealistic about how long a MMA champ's average reign and peak earning window is and now regrets it

    He thought he was gonna dispense challengers like pez candy and that just isn't how MMA works for 99.9% of Champs

    That stuff hurts when you look back upon it

    Pretty hard to feel sorry for the dumbasses that piss away fortunes. He had enough money to get Netflix and watch documentaries about the mistakes other athletes have made. Growing up poor is just an excuse.

    It's weird for someone to be so casual in publicly admitting that they are a retard. Why on Earth would he think anyone would have any sympathy for him?

    UFC has done athlete retreats where they were forced to go through finance lectures but apparently most fighters either slept or were busy doing other things on their phones

    Here's a guy I could never feel sorry for. Sounds like his money issues could have been curbed with a little common sense.

    UFC would never approve that, a poor desperate fighter is their favourite kind of fighter
