Tate: I do want to get paid more


Miesha Tate has fought for the UFC bantamweight title, both losses to Ronda Rousey. But in this two fights her profile was raised and in her next contract she hopes that her fight purses will reflect that:

Following the press conference, Tate told MMAFighting.com that her next fight would be the last on her current four-fight contract, and she preferred to sign a new deal before she fought again.

"I do want to get paid more, of course," she said. "I think my stock's gone up a lot since fighting in the UFC. I think the contract that transpired when I was still in Strikeforce, transitioning to the UFC, doesn't reflect what I feel like I'm worth. So that's a whole process that has to happen."

"no one is happy with their contract! I mean really... Who is happy with their contract!? you work because if you dont you cant eat. You think Mcdonalds drive-thru workers are happy with their contracts? UFC fighters are exactly the same as Mcdonalds drive-thru workers. Fuck them"Dana White

Being successful only 1 time out of 3 attempts will only get you paid in MLB; everywhere else they expect you to have a much higher success rate.

They are going to leverage her losses to Rousey against her. She may get a small bump but i doubt much more than that. The UFC is going to low ball the shit out of her.
