Dana White: Anderson Silva and Georges St. Pierre aren?t going to give up their cash to form a fighter's union - MMAmania.com
According to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White, the chances of a union forming among his stable of fighters is highly unlikely. Simply put, he doesn't see his top earners such as welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre and middleweight champion Anderson Silva giving up some of their hard-earned dough in order to inflate the purses of the lower-tier fighters. |
From his ESPN SportsNation Fan Chat:
"I doubt it. The thing about fighting is, fighting is not a team sport, it's an individual sport. It's going to be tough to see a day with Silva or GSP is giving up big chunks of their money to guys who won't make two fights in the UFC. Different sports. But if it happens, it happens. I have to negotiate with somebody on the fight contracts."
