Lönen för kämparna inne i oktagonen är något som diskuteras en hel del. Nu har Mike Tyson uttalat sig i ämnet och han tycker att de får på tok för lite:
Nothing personal to nobody, they gotta be f—ing millionaires. They gotta get the f—ing money they deserve. How is [MMA] going to be bigger than boxing if they don’t have cash? These guys need to be multi-multi-millionaires. They need to have their big f—ing mansions, their big cars and if not, they should be able to take care of their family. They should be able to live without fighting no more. They’re still getting brain damage. They’re still getting knocked out. They’re still going to the hospital every night, win, lose or draw. They know something bad’s going to happen eventually. Why can’t we live a good life until that happens? I’m just saying ultimate fighting fighters are not getting paid what they deserve.
