    The MORE money he makes. The more money the suits at WME make. They didnt get into this business to run a charity. They got in it to make huge profit margins. That 500 million dollar crypto.com deal benefits Dana and the WME suits. The lesson to be learned here. Dont aspire to be a fighter. Dont aspire to be a champion. Aspire to be the guy behind several champions and the premier mma league. Be the suit.

    So what you're saying is, their business practice is predatory and immoral?

    Exactly. Now you're understanding it. But we do our part dont we? We pirate the ppvs. We dont give them a cent.

    We watch guys nearly kill eachother for entertainment.
    This business isn’t about the morals or respect.
    Beating the shit out of eachother isn’t respect.

    This is nothing different than any other organization. Everyone that goes to work , they all keep the bottom line low and earn all the $ themselves. It’s fucking pathetic, but it’s the way the world is now.

    I paid for the fights this weekend. Hooker and Moraes on the prelims, ranked fighters in every main card fight except the people's main event Diaz vs Lawler II

    I intend to purchase Jan vs Glover as well. Easily the most excited I've been for a fight on paper in a while. But it does almost feel stupid doing so considering how little of the payout goes to the fighters outside the main events

    In general....yes. But not all companies are like this. Some actually do care about people and the planet and things like that. Very few of them, but some do.

    I am no affiliated with them at all but look at someone like Patagonia. They care and give back and haven't sold out. "In 2016, Patagonia pledged to contribute 100% of sales from Black Friday to environmental organizations, totaling $10 million"

    Sure their stuff is expensive but you can't have it both ways.

    This is true, though they do benefit with our data from the social media posts many of us make, cable television fees, UFC Fight pass and tickets for events when they come to town (at least they do from me)

    Yeah they kinda get me there too a little bit and I did help create Frankenstein's monster. I used to order UFC ppvs all the time. Last one I legit paid for. Was Wand vs Chuck. Lol. I did help them on their way to becoming this juggernaut.

    Sound exactly like arguments (probably) made in the 60s (I’m guessing) before the first 1968 Collective Bargaining agreement.

    Ball players then had little to gain until massive television contracts sprung up. And then they wanted some of that revenue. Now, it’s a little different because the owners then actually HAD agreed to share tv money with the players and tried to renege. Still, if they hadn’t got their shit together they would have continued playing for peanuts.

    The owners then claimed CBAs would kill their business model forever, just like automotive industries did when required to add seat belts, and just like Dana is today. My guess is Dana is also wrong.

    He won’t give in without a fight though, that’s for sure.

    conor
    diaz

    all divas as soon as they got their first payday
    dana white should cut all purses and only pay if you win by KO

    Basic ass capitalist system "WoRk HaRD aNd YoU WiLl eArN MoRe"
    Shit it ain't the fucking 1950's anymore. Imagine getting one chance to live and your potential for a better life is held back from fucking fat bottom feeding pieces of shit like Dana white

    What is it with so called mma “fans” and sucking Dana’s dick? Seriously. You go to boxing shows, and the promoter gets booed. Go to a UFC show, and Dana gets cheered. Ducking weirdos.

    Well, the funniest thing is, does TS actually believe that average fans don’t understand that a company makes more when they pay out less?

    I mean, I’ve had my jokes at the expense of mouth breathing mma fans, but c’mon. TS cannot be this dumb…can he?

    Because those athletes are responsible for his terribly run company thriving
    They sit out because they negotiate contracts and hold out for more money.
    Fat bald pink asshole doesn't want to pay them while he pockets all the cash they're making him. Wtf does he do to promote? All you ever hear the dude do is shit on his own guys. Due to sneaky scumbag contracts they're roped into all of this. Either play the game or somebody else will and you get dick
