The UFC has a bad impression when it comes to paying its fighters fairly. Many fighters have been preaching about it, and now the former UFC middleweight champion Sean Strickland has joined the squad. According to Sean Strickland, there’s a massive gap between what the UFC makes and pays its fighters.

The uneven split has provoked many fighters to complain, but nothing substantial has changed.

Corporations are just * succubuses”.
