The UFC, by my estimation, pays fighters 5-15% of revenue. And the fighters are responsible for their own training, and up until 2 years ago, were even responsible for their own medical insurance. And at any given time, their employer may simply tell them to fuck off and fire them.

Granted, running a league with teams vs paying contractors to fight are different, but that is still a huge discrepancy.
True, but that's similar to the WWE, and it still hasn't stopped people from joining that company as well. I mean from a "real world" perspective yes they're comparatively underpaid but it's still a fair price is what they're paying still attracts lines of people trying to join the UFC.

Also, given the career arcs of most fighters, their prime probably doesn't last more than 5-10 years, making it so much harder to market fighters instead of their own brand. The NBA can milk Lebron for 15-20 years, they've been milking Kobe for 18

Damnnn.. no Aldo vs Pettis??


Check out Aldo and his buddies singing about Pettis lol

http://instagram.com/josealdojunioroficial#


"Aldo and his crew sing, “e o Zumbi eu nunca vi, Ricardo Lamas la la la, Anthony Pettis seu viado, a sua hora vai chegar!” The original soccer song goes: “Cadê você? Cadê você? E no Maraca eu nunca vi, no Engenhão não estava lá, os jogadores todos choram, não têm torcida para apoiar.”

Crudely translated it goes, “the Zombie I have never seen, Ricardo Lamas la la la, Anthony Pettis you f**got, your time will come.”

They adapted a song from Flamengo’s supporters (Flamengo is the most popular soccer team in Brazil and Aldo is a Flamengo fan). Basically, it says that Anthony Pettis is a f**got and his time is going to come. They are clearly joking, but that is what they are saying.

The original song says: “Where are you? Where are you? In Maraca (the abbreviation of Maracanã, the biggest soccer stadium in Brazil) I have never seen, in Engenhão (the other big stadium of Rio de Janeiro) they weren’t there, all their players cry, they have no supporters to stand for them” Flamengo supporters sing this because Botafogo has a lot less supporters. -

NSAC are the ones who banned it

No other commissions have yet

UFC said that when they travel to areas where they act as commission, they will follow NSAC rules.

So if fighters are on TRT they will just fight in Texas or wherever. Other guys will just go back to doing it carefully and passing the piss tests. For some guys this will be harder than others obviously.

If that's the case, it sure makes the TRT ban look really sketchy

Vitor is so roided up that he can't get his levels down to an acceptable one before the fight?

There's no way. ABSOLUTELY NO WAY that he gave up that shot willingly. There has to be more to this

wonder what the post TRTitor will be like?

TRTitor > old vitor > new old vitor > new vitor > sisterless vitor

i think he will slot in somewhere better than new vitor but worse than new old vitor.

I think he'll be slightly above New Vitor but below New Old Vitor

Wait I just said the same thing as you
