Ant Walker, Michael Fiedel, and Patrick Auger discuss the recent UFC fighter pay controversies following the UFC 250 event on Saturday, June 6.
UFC 251: Usman vs. Masvidal is this weekend!
Three title fights are scheduled for UFC Fight Island on Saturday, July 11. Order the PPV now on ESPN+.
One of the biggest stories coming out of the weekend was Jorge Masvidal’s continued presence on social media, calling for improved pay and questioning the UFC’s current fighter pay rates.
Conor McGregor’s “retirement” comes not long after Henry Cejudo’s “retirement,” as both fighters have been vocal about seeking improved salary from the UFC.
Jon Jones, as well, has been vocal on social media, even stating that he’d be willing to give up the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship and step away from the sport.
Ant, Michael, and Pat discuss all of these issues and more.
