Ronda Rousey makes $3m a year but most UFC fighters don't get what they deserve

Ronda Rousey makes $3m a year but most UFC fighters don't get what they deserve
I used to be an MMA fan until I discovered how many of its athletes are treated in a brutal sport

I really don't get why the UFC an't pay fighters a bit more decently.  In the UFC it is a popularity contest. You know Paige VanZant is getting a decent salary to be a model who gets punched in the face. Meanwhile top athletes in the same org don't get payed half what they should.

Paige is prime example...

she's a pretty face and fights in the weakest division in the world

meanwhile the men fight for peanuts...then the reebok deal is slavery

One word. Greed.

It is also part of an ideology which is pervasive amongst the rich fucks that are destroying the US. Pay workers as little as possible. Suck up as much as you possibly can. This is formalized in the case of public companies, by the so-called 'shareholder value movement'. The UFC is a private company though. So it's basically just greed.

In Republic Plato questions why it is that the most courageous and physically powerful in society (soldiers) are bossed around by the typically wimpy pussies that are politicians. It is the same here in combat sports: Why are the fighters afraid of Dana White? Why won't they stand up to him?
