    Well the fighters won't literally get zero, but I agree with the point he's trying to make.

    I suspect Shamrock of trying to tell us that UFC IS DYING.

    Ken's history makes him at times less than credible

    Man, he's a moron. And like a lot of you sherdoggers, he doesn't realize that this will be a big step in UPPING fighter pay.

    obviously taking sponsorship money away from the fighters and giving it to the UFC would help fighters make more.

    I'm not a fan of Ken but IF this happened it would be bad for fighters, there's no way the ufc would funnel that money down the ladder.

    A. The UFC and Nike have both sponsored fighters, if you don't think they paid out more than most other sponsers, you're crazy. Having each and every fighter sponsored by both the UFC and whatever major apparel company will be HUGE for them, especially the smaller guys.
    and B. There will still be room for OTHER sponsers. This has been stated already.

    That doesn't make any sense. Most probably everyone involved would gain on this.
