Fight Night Bonuses Not Going Anywhere, Says Dana White

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.
