"Washouts are never happy"

Another classy response from the president of the premier MMA org.

I agree it's not the best response. It doesn't help the matter when DFW refuses to discuss the subject without resorting to name calling.

But even the guys that didn't 'washout' still got paid DICK for half their careers before they 'made it' and got on uncle Dana's good side.

No mma reporters have the brains or the balls to ask him a hard hitting follow up question to his bullshit 'sound bites'.

Fact. Phone Post 3.0

Being 6-2 is a washout? Sure is funny when the "best fighters in the world" can't pay their bills or afford to bring their trainers with them to their fights.

Really funny when the top company of their field can't pay more than minimum wage or cover the expenses required to work for them.

The ones who stand up for fighters' rights get put down, hilarious.

Also how is 6-2 a washout. I'm embarrassed to be an MMA fan sometimes

Not really. These guys aren't working at McDonalds. By getting to the UFC they've already worked their way up and should get paid like a professional.

If you start working for some mom and pop tech company, then get hired by Microsoft, they don't start you at $10 an hour...

NO DUDE. DANA IS SO COOL AND HE DOESN'T GIVE A FUCK WHAT ANYONE THINKS.. UNLESS YOU'RE A GAY, TRANNY OR CULINARY WORKER.

FUCK YOU GOOFS FOR THINKING PRO FIGHTERS SHOULD BE ABLE TO FIGHT FOR A LIVING.

technically speaking, an mma fighter making 6 grand to show is earning 24,000 dollars an hour for 3 rounds. Not 10 an hour.

It could be better for the low end fighters but it's not exactly like being a sweatshop worker in Cambodia or anything.

If all of you cut-throat pirates stopped stealing PPVs then maybe the UFC owners could make ends meet and pay these guys. Fucking goofs!

Dana really does come across as an out of touch tool sometimes.

Where do you get your free world class training, flights and hotels from? I'm very interested.

This.

I sure as hell wasn't a fan of Volkmann, but cutting a dude with that kind of record in the UFC is ridiculous. Same thing with Fitch. The guy was ranked as a Top Ten Welterweight in the UFC's official rankings when he was cut!

The fact that Duane Ludwig had to work two jobs during his tenure in the UFC speaks volumes.

Don't hurt yourself with logic like that.
