One of the biggest complaints from UFC over the years is regarding the promotion not paying their fighters properly. Jon Jones, in particular, has demanded he get paid a proper amount of money to compete in big fights.
Jake Paul became the unexpected champion when it comes to UFC fighters receiving fair pay for risking their lives in every fight. Jake Paul had previously blasted Dana White over UFC not paying their fighters properly.
Despite all the complaints Dana White receives regarding fighter pay, he simply doesn’t care. White even mocked Francis Ngannou a few months ago regarding better pay as well.
While speaking on Travis Browne’s podcast, Dana White talked about fighters being underpaid in the UFC and claimed that the fighters only think they are underpaid because of the media.
“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. It’s all part of the game.
That’s who they are and that’s what they do, and I literally could give a f—k.”
Dana White is certainly sick and tired of all the complaints from various UFC stars when it comes to getting paid properly, but he really should be more responsible and not pay merely a pittance to his fighters who risk their lives every time they compete.
