    Dana was always and will always be a promoter he started out as a boxing manager/ promoter. He wasnt successful because of don king and that fat head 90 year old. He decided I will go do MMA first and now he holds don king power he will over take Boxing as well he is the guy who might change the sport back a bit from prize fights and paperweight champs. Say what you will man is insane smart and successful

    U do realize that the UFCs shows generate 10000x of what Oscars MMA show can generate, if u put what Oscar is paying his guys into relation to that u would find that Oscar is paying his guys like 10x more money than what Dana is paying his TOP UFC fighters.

    That's a fact for anybody who undertands numbers and knows how to interpret stats and numbers properly.

    DC vs jon jhones 700,000 PPV , Deontey vs Tyson fury 325,000 PPV (pay per view) , yet Deontey makes 8 times what the UFC fighters made. DANA's the Biech

    DANA pays his champions roughly half a million per fight (DC, Jon Jhones, Tyron), OSCAR paid close to that amount to Chuck Liddel who is RETIRED 50 YEAR OLD and by the way Deontay Wilder salary = 4$ Million for a single fight, UFC fighters will need to fight 8 times to make the same amount.

    "Dana keeps 80% to himself"
    Yeah, and thousands of people in staff, advertising, organisation and so on do what they do for charity. It's easy to hate on Dana White, because - quiet frankly - he's not the most likeable guy, but ignoring that he has the biggest MMA buisness in the world to manage and pay a whole lot of people to do the the most various jobs is just silly.

    Dana's ufc bonuses for fights are $50,000 dollars and usually 3 fights get that bonus so yeah Dana is telling y'all the truth. Some of you just dont want the truth cause u people believe what u want. Oscar is a straight cheeseball.

    UFC fighters should make more, but they still have a better model than boxing. Boxing is a mess. Who are the champions? What are the divisions? What is the organization of boxing? No one knows. In the UFC you get what you give. If you bring in more money then you will make more money. All of the fighters should get paid more, but you don’t want it to become like boxing.

    “The entire compensation for their card was 580,000 and 450,000 went to chuck and Tito (130,000 difference). The undercard made 95,000.” What?

    Oscar did lie but he wasn't far from the truth
    The UFC screwed every fighter out of sponsorships by making millions out of the selfish Reebok deal
