    I don't get how people support Dana, or even like him at all. I guess people want to say they like Dana because they secretly want to be him, and be rich. But it goes to show you how shitty these guys really are. Just imagine all the shit that will eventually come out once Dana is gone.

    Zuffa LLC is the defendant.

    The Fertittas are divested of Zuffa, which is now owned by a consortium led by Endeavor.

    And yet fans want to shit on guys like Stipe who is one of the few who isnt dependend from the UFC cause he has a job, for waiting out his titleshot, thats fine but dont pretend to be for fighters pay if you neglect the most logical option for a fighter.

    Well yeah, top players sit out and not play pretty regularly in the NFL, hell two of the top RBs in the league are sitting out right now and one sat out the whole year last year.

    The UFC is already breaking the law. The US government just doesn't do enforcement on companies. Especially those with connections. At best it's extremely selective about it even when shit is blatant. Their anti-competitive practices alone would result in the UFC having to break up it's business.

    What will happen instead? They are very likely getting the Trump admin to undermine boxing so Zuffa can create their own titles which is currently illegal. Not that doing illegal shit has stopped them before but they would be up against boxing and those guys would be pissed. We should know in about six to nine months.

    How could they re sign nick Diaz in 2010 when he wasn’t even fighting in the ufc at that point? He was still in strikeforce

    All I got from that is, you don't refuse fights. Just fight, fight out your contract. That's it. If the UFC is so bad why sign with them in the first place.

    Its a joke really how the athletes get used. They need a union like all major sports, that protects the fighters from bs. Its just not that far along i guess, but once declared a legit sport the fighters union will follow close behind.

    You can tell he's a mean-spirited little fuck from that exchange with Lorenzo. Like boy that escalated quickly. I guess I never thought of him as a sleazy POS because I never realized that he had anything to do with how much the fighters get paid per fight or whatever. But yea when you see it all laid out like that you can tell he's a scumbag - this is a filthy business and all the guys who make big money promoting it are gonna be assholes. Chael could spin all of this into making UFC out to be the good guys and the greedy fighters being the bad guys and keep a straight face while doing it.

    Maybe I’m in the minority but I literally don’t care,
    Life’s a bitch and this shit happens in all forms of business

    Let’s be real, half the guys on roster aren’t even athletes, they are Saturday night fighters who in another time frame would be doing it for free in a bar anyway, boo hoo Roy gets a tough fight on the prelims?

    Poor Kajan Johnson had to fight two Russians because she badmouthed the main sponsor?

    Grow up

    Feel sorry for military losing their jobs, doctors, teachers, surgeons because everybody on planet earth is getting low balled one way or another

    It’s called life
