(FULL INTERVIEW AT http://stephaniejoplin.com)

Here is a portion of the interview (too long to include all of it here with the personal pics)

Stephanie: You recently garnered a lot of press talking about MMA sponsorships on social media. What set that off? What was the original situation that made you upset?
 
War Machine: What set it off is that these guys that own the clothing companies are millionaires. My agent has a f*cking million dollar house on the beach, do you know what I mean? Everyone's rich and all the fighters don't have health insurance. We're broke, we're miserable. Right now, I have a torn ACL, I have a hernia, I'm busting my ass every f*cking day training...I'm going to fight on TV in front of a million people, these a**holes have the nerve to try and pay me $500 bucks to wear their shorts? Or $2 or $300 bucks for a t-shirt? It's chump change. All these stupid fighters that have no balls to negotiate and accept all these bullsh*t, lowball offers. So, because five guys accepted $3 or $400 bucks to wear those shorts, now they have the balls to ask me to wear them for $500. No, it ain't going to happen. It's the fighters' fault, because the fighters are so stupid. They're so stupid and they're so eager to get in there and fight and make a penny. They would take anything, you know? Not me, I won't take anything; I won't do it. I'll have ten sponsors for $500 bucks each? I'll just go out there with nothing on and make no money instead of wearing that sh*t. Everyone says, "Oh, you're an idiot," but guess what? Today I get an email and now I have a big ass sponsor at a high-paying amount. I'm going to be the highest paid guy at Bellator with my shirt. All the other guys that are fighting...these guys are fighting, like, title fights for Bellator...and they give them $1500 bucks to wear a t-shirt, you know? I'm getting three, four times that. I want to f*cking slap them in the face. What pisses me off too is that my sports agent is trying to pressure me into accepting that sh*t. You know what I mean? You know why? Because I went on Twitter and I started bashing Sprawl and Sprawl started crying a river…called my agent, "Why was he saying that about us?", blah blah blah. So now, Sprawl is staring to not sponsor, like, ten of those other guys [fighting in Bellator]. The agent is going to make $400-$500 bucks off the same guys...so he's trying to pressure me into signing this deal for $500 bucks because for him, it's not [just] $500 bucks. It's ten guys at $500 bucks. I got this hernia, I push that shit back in my stomach every day. It's popping out. I got a torn ACL, I'm fighting my ass off and this guy's got a million dollar house and he's trying to tell me to sell me for $500 bucks.
 
Stephanie: Tell me about your venture into porn and how that happened.
 
War Machine: After I was on The Ultimate Fighter, I started getting kind of popular and all of a sudden porn girls would write me on MySpace. So I started going to L.A. and started boning them [laughs]. So, I knew all these porn girls and then one day I was talking to them and I was in a weird mood...I said, "I'm going to try porn...f*ck fighting. I'm going to take some time off." So I just went there and did it; it was fun.
 
Stephanie: How much porn did you do?
 
War Machine: I did, like, 20 scenes or so.
 
Stephanie: So, why did you stop?
 
War Machine: I got jumped at a party and I beat up a bunch of guys who were kind of powerful and they blackballed me from the industry. I also got engaged.
 
Stephanie: Did you ever get married?
 
War Machine: Yeah. She got deported when I went to jail. She's back in Hungary; I'm not married [now], but I have a girlfriend.
 
War Machine: I know that you're a fan of WMMA; what do you think about Cat Zingano having to pull out of The Ultimate Fighter against Ronda Rousey?
 
War Machine: I don't know. Did she really get hurt, or is it a lie? I bet you the UFC probably paid her to say she was hurt because they didn't want her on the show; they wanted to have Miesha Tate instead. I wonder if it's real or not. I wonder if they were like, "We want the prettier girl on the show, here's f*cking $20 grand to say you're hurt." I'm curious. It's bullsh*t because the UFC had their hearts set on Ronda Rousey and stupid "Cupcake." They got screwed over because Cat won and Cat's not as much of a pretty girl or whatever...I don't know, man. Rousey is so one-dimensional. The best MMA girls aren't even in the UFC. I'd rather watch the girls over in Invicta or Bellator.
 
Stephanie: I read on Twitter that you want to tell millions the truth about MMA; is that related to the sponsorships or is this something different?
 
War Machine: The sponsorship thing...just everything, man. It's how the whole sport is and it's the UFC's fault. Bellator is doing the best they can, but they're limited in the amount of budget and sponsors they get. The UFC is screwing it up so much. If a big company, like Reebok, would step up and sponsor Bellator and give them the money they need to really compete with the UFC, it would be different. It's all about the sponsors; that's where all the money is.
 
Stephanie: So, basically, you're whole point is that it's the fighters who are doing all of the work, but not the ones making the money.
 
War Machine: Yeah, exactly. I saw a statistic of some sh*t...I forget...but it was like the NFL or the NBA, pro-sports. The profits of every pro-sport, like 70 percent or 80 percent, goes to the players. That's where the profits go, you know? And in f*cking MMA? 17 percent of the profits of the UFC, goes to the f*cking fighters. 17 percent! Compared to, like, 70 everywhere else in the world. They can afford to give all of us good paydays, but instead they want to have eight Lamborghinis instead of three. Why do they want to be so greedy and rich? It's f*cked up.

IF you think about it, a 15 minute grinding cage match and a porn scene are kind of similar in terms of conditioning.

Maybe there's a hybrid coach out there that can implement "porning" into a camp.

Anyone on here know any professional fighters? If so you can vouch that most are grinding, sacraficing all and most will come out of it with fuck all. The system is fucked.

Someone should let War Machine know that Bellator is owned by Viacom. Bellator would benefit greatly from a big sponsor like Reebok, but they already have a behemoth in their corner.

Viacom just needs to step up and start spreading the wealth - maybe get War Machine some health insurance.

He actually thinks he is a star, is gonna win a tournament and Bellator title and the UFC is gonna be knocking down his door to sign him but he is gonna tell them fuck off.

If you are having sponsor trouble how about blame Bellator not the UFC, what does teh UFC have to do with you getting sponsors?

If anything shouldnt these sponsors who get banned by the UFC or wont pay the UFC tax, shouldnt they be sponsoring Bellator fighters and Bellator? How is it the UFC's fault that sponsors dont want to apart of Bellator? That Rick Hawn in a debut Spike event title fight can get sponsors, thats the UFC's fault?

War Machine isn't having problems getting sponsors. It's just that he only wants big name, big money sponsors!

$500 to wear your t-shirt?? Fuck off, War Machine doesn't need your stinkin' $500!!!! Do you know who the fuck he is??

Haven't most (if not all) of the pros on this forum come on here and said they make a lot more than what is disclosed to the public and they are doing pretty well with contract+bonus+sponsorships?

WarMachine quick question when you said "Those f*ckers are really going to hate on me when they see that sh*t" when talking about your girl were you talking about the uG or just generalizing?

He doesn't seem to grasp that sponsors aren't giving money to fighters/orgs out of the kindness of their heart but are actually looking for some ROI
