Dana has touched on his shitty fighter pay a few times. Currently Dana has earned more from the UFC than all the fighters combined. He says it's to keep fighters grounded and wanting to fight (for the fans of course) but now we have a situation where people are training to kill themselves because there is hardly any money if you're not champ. Cain has a terrible injury history but he did say after his last fights that him and DC were changing how they approached training - to minimise risk of injury. Cain obviously has seen the bottom line that's at stake if he doesn't become champ again and has over trained once again. Injuries will never improve until the pay does, it's the only way to give fighters peace of mind.
