Fighter's pay has always been a hot topic in the combat sports world. That said, here we take a look at UFC fighters who had a public feud with the promotion and Dana White on the 'UFC fighter pay' issue.
Jones has criticized Dana White and the entire UFC on social media on various occasions. He understandably wants more fight purse to face Francis Ngannou or any top heavyweight contender in a mega-fight.
Ngannou questioned UFC’s pay model while addressing the Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul fight. The heavyweight champ said - "It's crazy to think that Logan Paul (0-1) just made $20M on a boxing exhibition. WHAT ARE WE DOING WRONG?”
Masvidal took it to Twitter, addressing the issue of UFC offering him less money for one of his fights. Furthermore, 'Gamebred' claimed that fighters in other promotions get paid half the revenue they generate, while UFC fighters only get paid around 12%.
Costa felt that he was getting underpaid by the UFC. Thus, he turned down at least two fights before finally accepting to fight Marvin Vettori. Furthermore, 'Borrachinha' took it to social media to criticize the UFC.
