...Oh wait, no, that's a fact.

Remember this clueless UFC shill phrase...

"That's not even counting Sponsorship money"
Like it means something. The hero of the people who always chimed in with that says it doesn't.

Why do you think the UFC itself charges such a big fee to them if it means nothing?

Why would fighters go out on their own time to secure them? Seek a manger who gets % to find them?

How come they make sure right after a hectic, stressful fight even if injured they fanatically put on a hat and shirt before Buffer can talk? Dana laughs at all those stupid pathetic fighters who do that every time.

Why do so many dismiss the first sentence full of real expenses which is a fact to spout the hilarious hollow line about Sponsorship money?
I agree with you TS

The Fertittas already have a beef going on against the culinary union for the same reason, they like to abuse and underpay their employees.

They drove The Station Casinos to bankruptcy here in Las Vegas, cashed out and went full 100% the UFC.

Funny thing is, most workers unions (culinary, plumbers, electricians, etc.) are garbage, but thanks to owners who like to abuse employees, The Unions are a necessary evil.

It would be hilarious to see fighters forming a union for themselves.

Why are you arguing with idiots online on a forum about fights and UFC, why don't you just enjoy them and shut up, oh and go to sleep!!

for the lower tier fighter when it becomes you sign for 5,000 plus 5,000 it is nothing more then a monopoly . take it or leave it attitude it the sign on the door for anyone that is comming in .Cummins comes to mind is he getting his 10,000 for showing .. but saving the card should be worth a whole lot more .
