    Why don’t we take a look at how much Dana is making and really consider why?

    Negotiating tactics. Ngannou doesn't want to fight until August at the earliest according to a Q&A he did this week. Plenty of time to get the Jones deal done.

    8 years and counting for Picto's move to HW.

    <36>

    Fighters do deserve to be paid quite a bit more though. It's a shame Jon wasn't such a huge advocate for it in years past.

    I’m always amazed when Dana publicly shits on his fighters.

    Dana "Multi-Millionaire" White talking about "We will go broke if we pay these guys millions"

    Meanwhile, he rakes in 10's of millions each year and doesn't fight. LMAO

    What a clown!

    Put simply, Jon is not worth 30 million dollars for a single appearance. That'd be more than half of what the card would generate for pure profits if i'm not mistaken. If true as well of course, because this is Dana White we're talking about here.

    Put simply, Jon is the most accomplished fighter in UFC history, being asked to take the most dangerous fight of his career.

    “I wasn’t asking Deontay Wilder money to fight Francis.”

    *francis develops a sprawl*

    ”I want deontay wilder money.”

    You are vastly overselling how many boxers get 30 mill a fight. I can probably count on one hand among the current crop.

    How could anyone know this? The UFC doesn’t share PPV numbers much less their profit margins, unless this is through their public filing?
