AllAmericanBoxing -  Those who have earned there way in are better than the average joe mma'er. But if they weren't fighting elite talent in a top organization then they don't deserve the investment from zuffa. At that point they are a replaceable commodity. It's their job to prove there fighting ability/marketability. Phone Post

Exactly. Their value to another promotion fighting lesser talent (in most cases) doesn't mean they are top talent for the UFC. Once they have proven they can hang, by all means, pay them accordingly. If they can't, cut them so they can make a living somewhere else. No different than if they had any other job.

They have a monopoly on the fight game.

 

The government disagrees:)

You might want to look at what the FTC actually investigated Cindy-O, and what action they took. 

It isn't what you think.


LOL! Very well... then change my response to the government didn't agree;)

 

Cindy


Nope--doesn't fix it.

The government didn't investigate what you think they did--

Your entire statement is false.

xakx - For once I agree with Ken. This is no news and he kept quiet about it for many years because he was getting paid. Now I guess he got nothing to lose so he blasts them. I bet its all true an accurate. Sounds like it!

Yeah, Ken is so "in the know" about fighter pay when he hasn't been on the UFC roster since 2006 and hasn't been intimately associated with a single guy in the UFC in years=) Yup, I'd say this is a mans word is legit and owing Zuffa something like $180,000 in atty fees has no bearing on what he has to say in the media about them! lol

I admit Ken is not the greatest source but its not like he just made this stuff up and decided to go public with it. He has been around long enough to see a lot.

Wasn't he just begging Dana for a fight to pay off the debt he owes Zuffa lawyers? Phone Post 3.0

Cindy hits these guys with cold hard and undeniable logic.

and like predictable clockwork, they retort with personal attacks and emotional appeals
