Dana White fires back at ESPN’s salary slam
I don’t blame UFC boss Dana White for being a little hot under the collar over ESPN’s story on underpaid UFC fighters. The UFC is an easy target. He goes a little overboard, but the piece he pulls together is a nice balancing out of the original.
Still, though, it doesn’t exactly help his case — that the UFC provides ample opportunities for fighters to make a very good living thanks to bonuses, cuts of the pay-per-view revenue, sponsorship dollars — by only having three fighters comment who also all happen to be former UFC champions who have made millions. That doesn’t mean a whole lot to the guy who’s spent three months preparing for his UFC debut for which he earns $6,000.
