We understand that Dana White has recently been addressing the topic of fighter pay, but doing so in the way that an abusive spouse or an alcoholic would; through threats. The logic is like this; if you guys want fighters to be paid better, fine, then no one gets bonuses anymore.
Apparently fighters went to White and asked that the UFC keep the bonus structure. I would say that it comes out of fear of the unknown and what they’d possibly do next. I mean, it could, logically get worse, right? So according to White, the bonuses will stay and everything will remain as it is now.
Honestly, this doesn’t sound like a great situation for the fighters right now.
