The former professional mixed martial artist and host of The Fighter and the Kid, Below the Belt with Brendan Schaub podcast, took a no-filter approach to speak about the UFC president and his new Power Slap League venture.
The fighter pay issue has been a major problem in the UFC and many fighters have come out and voiced their take on it. This time Brendan Schaub has expressed his take on parallels between the Power Slap League and the UFC in the earlier days.
The former UFC heavyweight and stand-up comedian Schaub recently thrashed the UFC president over fighters’ pay in Power Slap League.
Schaub expressed his opinion and said, “It’s a tough sell man. Listen, I enjoy a sh*t show. I feel bad for the guys how much they’re paid. Then Dana went at some kid on Instagram or Twitter. So this guy wrote a title where you get 2k and 2k and 10k and 10k if you win it all.”
He later went on and quoted White‘s tweet on the podcast and said, “I think ‘@powerfuljuicebox’ is educated. The problem is 2k and 2k and Dana goes yeah that’s how MMA started too. Yeah b*tch in 1993.”
Schaub targeted Dana White and accused him of using the same tactics as he used in UFC. He said, “2k and 2k these slap fights can make more at Starbucks. ‘That’s how MMA started too’. No no no, we know, you f****d over guys for a long long time.”
