ESPN on Fighter Pay and UFC’s Unseen Video Footage Response

There’s been a lot of buzz over the last week concerning an ESPN ‘Outside the Lines’ report on fighter pay in the world’s biggest MMA organization, the UFC.

The final video piece aired on Sunday’s ‘Outside the Lines’ where ESPN takes a look at fighter pay, including interviews with owner Lorenzo Fertitta, promoter and manager Monte Cox as well as UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock.

Following that release, the UFC planned to air part of the interview that Fertitta did with ESPN that did not air, and on Sunday they released the footage.

Fertitta questions the ESPN reporter about the fighter pay on some of their boxing shows in which fighters pull in only hundreds of dollars per performance.
