Currently, UFC is having a funny story causing many changes in the locker room, that is, the superstars of the tournament constantly complained about the compensation, when a weak boxer gets a raise regardless of receiving 3 matches consecutive losses.
In recent times, UFC is having a lot of trouble about salaries for boxers. While the top UFC fighters are constantly denouncing compensation (Masvidal, Jon Jones, Conor McGregor), there are cases where weak, poor, losing fighters receive a raise.
Recently, Tim Elliott (won 15, lost 11, draw 1) has received a decision to raise the salary from UFC regardless of whether he has NOT held the championship title of any previous tournament. Moreover, he competes in Flyweight, a weight that is of little interest at UFC and he is losing 3 consecutive games in a row. What has made this puncher a raise while other UFC PPV superstars are ignored?
Not every superstar will be reminded to raise wages at UFC
Not only Tim Elliott is a boxer who is paid higher than he really is. T within the past 5 years, heavy boxer Alistair Overeem is also on the list of the richest fighters in UFC. However, except that he was once the K1 champion and has fought in many different MMA tournaments, the Dutchman’s performance at UFC is quite modest.
Now, Overeem is still “in charge” of the “doorkeeper” of heavyweight, only hanging around in the top 10 and failing to compete for the title. Even so, In the list of the 10 highest-earning UFC fighters, Overeem has always been a persistent name.
BMF holder Jorge Masvidal is constantly tense with the UFC president, the cause of his dissatisfaction with his current remuneration in the tournament. Jon Jones’s proposal to increase the remuneration for the match against Francis Ngannou gave UFC President Dana White a headache, now the same problem continues with Jorge Masvidal.
Jorge Masvidal is asking for a higher remuneration to be able to fight
It can be seen that this is the main reason why “Gamebred” has postponed the title match with middleweight champion Kamaru Usman, although this is Masvidal’s first match at UFC.
The boxer who is ranked 3rd in Welterweight also points out that boxers like Jon Jones, Henry Cejudo or Conor McGregor all have the same problem. The evidence is the information retired, demanding continuous cancellation of these boxers.
