    GSP and Brock remain the kings of negotiating with the UFC

    Thank you

    Sketchy stuff

    One day we will look back at how UFC fighters were treated / what they were paid and realize how borderline criminal it was

    Thing is

    Silva is being scapegoated here but the reality he is far from the only one to blame here

    yeah well no one put a gun to their head and made them sign with ufc so that means ufc is justified in treating them however they want. can go to russia or pakistan if they don't like it

    That's not getting "played," it's getting screwed.

    All of this shit is illegal in boxing, yet there are people on this forum who constantly side with the UFC and shit on fighters for "not negotiating better contracts." As if the contracts actually work in the fighters' favor.


    Also, this confirms what I've been saying for years about Silva. He was one of the biggest scumbags in combat sports, but, unlike Dana, was smart enough to keep his dirt behind the scenes.

    The entire organization is rotten to the core. The whole brass & staff are conditioned to be like that. Hyenas. Starting with Dana.

    Silva has done nothing wrong here imo

    Shady negotiation tactics happen in every like of business the whole point of the negotiation is to get the better end of the deal

    Literally what happened to Kajan Johnson. Got put against Khabilov and Makachev back-to-back (should have won against Rustam) all because he spoke out against the Reebok deal.
