No One Wants Fighters To Make Boxing Money More Than Dana White

Money is a hot topic in MMA. Despite the fact that purses have increased over the years, many people complain that fighters don’t make the same kind of huge purses that some of the boxers do. That kind of criticism bugs Dana White, because as he explains in this video from the UFC 138 post-fight press conference, no one wants mixed martial artists to make boxing money more than he does. It’s not hard to figure out why. If the fighters are making more money that means Dana White and the UFC is making more money.

Despite the lack of eight-figure purses though, Dana says they have made approximately 40 fighters millionaires, 20 of which have become multi-millionaires.
