White: Performance bonuses here to stay

Tuesday, July 16, 2013

There has been an extended discussion within the UFC, and the fan base, as to whether there should be a pay raise for entry level fighters, paid for by shuttering the ‘Of The Night’ performance bonuses, as well as dscretionary ‘locker room’ bonuses.

In an interview during today’s media conference call for UFC on Fox 8: Johnson vs. Moraga, MMASucka.com asked UFC president Dana White if there was a possibility of future UFC contracts being broken up into show money, win money, and finish money while doing away with the ‘OTN’ bonuses,.

“No,” said White. “After I talked about looking at what we’re doing with the bonuses, the fighters all made it clear that they want to keep the post-fight bonuses and the discretionary bonuses.”

What do you think UG?
