Per Ariels twitter, Dana White doesn't like his manager, who is the same as GSPs. Says he (Gil) should contact Lorenzo quick or start looking elsewhere.

I seriously hope Dana doesn't fuck someone over because he doesn't like someone. I'll try to screen cap the tweets and post them. Phone Post 3.0

Gil is one of my favourites and he's only been in the UFC for five minutes after years of waiting, they need to sort this shit out.

Also, with Alvarez and Chandler not in the UFC, Dana should be trying hard to keep a hold of his top LWs Phone Post 3.0

Melendez is literally top 2 talent in the LW division, it would be one of the dumbest fucking moves on the planet to let him go.

Gil sat out a long time after the Thomson fight, and never fought Healy (contract troubles, injuries) because he knew the guy with the title would get a bigger contract and get an immediate title shot once the UFC and Strikeforce merged. I think he's trying to wait it out to see if he can get a title fight with Pettis.

They let BJ walk when he had the ww title and immediately after he defeated the best p4p LW and WW in the world.

He wants gsp money. He's probably not the draw he and his manager thinks he is, but he performs and he's top 3 in the weight class. Pay the man his money. Phone Post 3.0

The Tiger Man - He has a contract so I doubt it's money. Probably more about trying to choose his opponents.

He makes 175k to show but that was probably his SF deal coming to an end, actually it def was his SF deal coming to an end.

UFC clearly doesnt feel he is worth that unless he is champ which is isnt, remember Bendo as champ made I think 100/100.  So as a contender UFC probably wants him to take less and for Gilbert who feels he beat bendo he shouldnt have to take less, which you cant blame him for that.

 

So they seem to be far apart and Dana hates his manager, not that hating a manager is the reason he will let Gil walk, the terms of the deal are the problem.

 

It would fucking suck if Gil waits all that time to finally get to the UFC, gets two fights and then has to leave cuase the UFC dont want to pay him.  If he leaves then the UFC is officially a fucking joke.

What are you talking about?

You have no f'n clue what he is asking for and you automatically act like it's the UFCs job to pay him. I am very glad you don't run one of my companies or I'd be bankrupt.

What if Gil wants $5 per PPV, a fight against a non top 10 and $3,000,000 guarantee. Do you pay him?

FUCK NO!

They will give him more if he gives in and gets rid of his management.

Nothing Zuffa seems to hate more then a middle person trying to get more for their athlete.

Sorry about the other thread OP. I searched Gil, Gilbert but not Melendez. 

VU for the trouble.

How do you not pay a guy like Gil Melendez? Break off that cheddar for an entertaining scrapper, Lorenzo.

I hope they work this out, not the time to lose yet another good fighter. He is a legit scrapper.
