I don't like it, but for now it seems the freak shows and TMZ controversies are driving the wages in UFC. If legit fighters like Thompson and Barberena want to move up and command a better salary within the current system, they'll have to up their PR game with some professionals that know how to manage public perception. The up and comers may not be able to pay on the front end, but some of these PR firms would do well to get in on the ground floor with fighters like either of these two, to get them some PPV money. UFC will promote whomever they like better, that won't change, but some fighters are in dire need of some direction. That's right, I'm looking at you too Hendrix. You need someone to stop you from saying whatever the hell you feel like saying on camera.
