    Well, the war between the UFC and the Culinary Union is still on, but if any of this pressure helps raise fighter pay for anyone on the roster, the scrutiny is perhaps worth it.

    It's evident that the Culinary Union is on a vicious smear campaign against the UFC due to the Fertittas not unionizing their casinos, but if recent actions from the UFC has shown us anything, it's that they're no angels either.

    The disastrous Reebok deal has really antagonized the promotion, and this is just following up on a recent report that the Culinary Union and Teamsters Union wanted to aid in unionizing UFC fighters. How legitimate those intentions are is anyone's guess.

    Lol Ronda might be the highest paid fighter in the sport and Tate also makes bank. You get paid what your worth and the other ladies simply aren't worth a lot in this sport as of right now.

    what ts fails to note in the article he cites as source, it goes on to totally dismiss the culinary unions figures as utterly wrong..

    the article clearly says that, ts just didnt bother reading past the first paragraph

    lol, their poster boy (well, fucking ancient, decrepit, corrupt old man) got put away and they're still on for this.

    I love how this shit doesn't and never has had anything to do with MMA and is 100% about putting money in their pockets.

    I'm not on-board with Zuffa by any means (e.g. that rotten Reebok deal), but the folks over at the culinary union are a bunch of morons who need to stick with cooking meals.

    For a start the 82% statistic they mentioned is proven bullshit anyway. Secondly, one of the reasons women make less in the UFC because they're easily the least popular fighters. Why should they be paid the same when nowhere near as many people want to watch them? This is coming from a fan of WMMA by the way.

    all we need to do is compare is how many Male fighers are in UFC compared to female fighters(much much much more men in the ufc so the male payment average is going to go up)(less female fighters so the average will go down)


    the entire study is bullshit

    Guys:
    get hit a lot harder
    get more brain damage
    more injuries
    earlier retirement
    more damage to the body and organs
    higher risk
    more knockouts
    more health costs

    Girls:
    Can get a lot more money with magazine photoshots



    Guys rightfully get more money. Ronda is the most overpaid athlete in the ufc.

    It's so weird seeing Heather Clark there. She used to come over with Diego Brandao when they were both broke as shit. They used to be a couple
