Roy Nelson Lets Loose On IFL Salary Structure In Interview
Ben Goldstein from CagePotato.com sent along the following:
My broheem Kipp just interviewed the IFL's heavyweight champ Roy Nelson, and without much prompting, got him to trash pretty much every aspect of the IFL. It's some wild, incendiary shit...link is here:
Here's an excerpt:
CP: The IFL announced a while back that their business plan involved sharing profits with the fighters, as well as providing salaries and health benefits to train and fight. Has this been the case?
RN: Yes and no. What I mean is, if you complained enough they would help with the medical stuff but you'd have to be all over them.
CP: Are you on salary?
RN: The 2007 season, a lot of people were on salary. But now they're trying to go backwards and just pay for fights.
CP: We assume since the IFL is not turning profits, there has not been much by way of profit sharing, correct?
RN: Correct. I think they used that method how a pimp does with his girl. Holding that carrot out at the end of the rainbow.
