    Edit:
    He's also feeling disrespected and discredited by the UFC-
    “From what I’m seeing, the UFC is trying to discredit me. That’s what I know. And those promoting somebody cannot work together with discrediting him. You don’t do that to somebody that you want to promote,” said Ngannou.

    “What do I look for? First of all, I look for some respect, that’s to start. Then I look to get stuff right, I look to feel like I’m respected, to feel like they care at least. That’s it. I never asked for anything more than that. That would be enough for me. … I gained the position that I am at,” Ngannou added. “I wasn’t nominated, I wasn’t assigned to be here, I earned it. So that means I deserve a little bit of respect, just a little bit. I’m not a big deal, just a little famous, that’s it. (Laughs).”

    I won't argue that the UFC underpays their fighters.

    But if Francis still can't afford to pay for a training camp right now, that's his own fault.

    Between salary, performances of the night and Venum money, he got paid almost a million in a year.

    And then the endorsements.

    I'm all for bigger pay for those guys, but they seriously are doing something wrong if they can't afford a camp.

    He got paid like a million 6 months ago. Either he's lying or just doesn't know how to manage his money at all.

    This one’s shocking because of Ngannous international appeal, and OBVIOUS marketability. I mean seriously, this is one of the guys who should clearly be getting paid.

    Im sick of the ufc robbing the fans of good fights because they won’t pay their athletes properly

    LOL - I busted up laughing at that too. UFC is worth like 2x the New York Knicks.....yes the entire UFC is worth the same as 2 NBA teams.

    If these fighters want to make so much money go do and what someone like Ziggy Ansah did. The guy was born in Ghana....never even saw NFL as a kid. NEver played it until sophomore year of college. Made it to the NFL and career earnings of $40mil.

    Why don't more fighters do this?

    Hes been pretty vocal about pay recently and it seems to have heated things up with the goof.
    Might need to be careful though as Dana doesnt lose these battles often.

    He said it on an interview with Helwani.

    IMO he's lying to garner sympathy and pity for himself OR he just sucks with managing money. Bcuz as others have said, he makes enough to buy fancy cars and stuff.
