Actually that's pretty stupid.

Do you know what a "professional athlete" is?

Do you know what a "semi-pro" athlete is?

Do you know what a "recreational athlete" is

WHat is the UFC selling genius?

Didn't capitalize "Barnatt," misspelled "blatant," didn't separate "read" and "between."

See, I can be a pedant, too.
Nice to see that I got under your skin, misssion achieved.

There's a difference between a semantic error and a clear misunderstanding of a concept btw. Not that's pedantry.

He isn't exactly a long time veteran or super star, he hasn't fought in 2 years or something and you think it is strange that he is broke?

Second, how could anyone who's ever worked a day in their life support the obscenely rich like such sniffling, little bitches? Is this thread flooded with Zuffa employees? Are people that easily duped to support such non-sense?

The UFC has all the price gouging of the major sports. The difference is that most of that money goes right to them, not to "handsomely" paid athletes with 7 and 8 figure salaries.
The UFC makes no where close to what other major sports make.

HW - Velasquez
LHW - Rampage, Cormier
MW - Bisping
WW- Nick Diaz, Alves, Douglas Lima, Gastelum
LW - Melendez, Nate Diaz, Masvidal, Pettis,
FW - Aldo, KZ, Méndez, Bermudez
BW - Barao, Brandao

Zuffa are the devils

The took their own money & turned around a business with hard-work & a great business plan & they now employ more MMA fighters than any company in history with many becoming rich
They took a dying sport & made it so popular they are on FOX

Zuffa are the devils
