Herring: ‘Dana White has six Ferraris, I just want one’

Sunday, February 14, 2010


“I really don’t care too much for [the UFC’s management team], I don’t think they care too much for me.

“They’ve got their guys they want to push, guys they want to market. Randy Couture, Brock Lesnar and Frank Mir are the guys they want to push and market. The problem is if you’re one of the guys who’s not one of their favorites, they want to keep you out of the competition.

“I’m trying to make money for myself, feed my family, and [the UFC] are trying to do everything they can to make it impossible for me. With the way the UFC’s pay scale and as much as it costs me to get ready for a fight. At the end of the day I made like 40 grand.

“If I was getting a little more money and it was worth my while I’d get back into fighting. But right now I’m making more in movies. I’ve got to look out for number one as far as that goes.

“[The UFC] are literally making money off our blood, sweat and tears. We don’t get any health insurance. If you get hurt training for a fight, you’re screwed. It’s really kind of crazy. Dana White’s got six Ferraris. Hell, I just want one.”
