Dana White UFC on Fox 8 Post_9291It seems that any time UFC president Dana White is addressed lately, he’s talking about fighter pay… and Saturday night following UFC on Fox 8 in Seattle was no different.

But with a sour taste left in his mouth following a disappointing co-main event bout between Rory MacDonald and Jake Ellenberger, White fell back on the same words he’s been saying for some time now. If you want to make big money in the fight game, go get it.

That’s paraphrasing, of course, but not far off the mark.

Check out what UFC president Dana White had to say in his UFC on Fox 8 post-fight scrum with members of the media, as he went off on fighter pay and railed on Rory MacDonald and Jake Ellenberger.
