Nate Quarry Speaks Out Against UFC's Treatment Of Fighters
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.19.2014



In an interview with MMA Junkie, retired fighter Nate Quarry spoke about the company's negative treatment of its fighters. Here are highlights:

On the way UFC treats fighters: "People have no clue from the outside what it's like to fight for the UFC. After spending 10-15 years chasing your dream, only to see that the company it's been your dream to fight for cares nothing about the fighters and only cares about the bottom line."

On the money he made from fighting: "People seem to forget that we're taxed like everyone else. So it may sound really attractive to the average person – ‘This guy made $100,000 in his three fights.' Well, take 30 percent right off the top, and then you're down to $70,000. Then, generally, it's 20 percent for your main camp. Now you're down to $56,000, and if you're fighting for the UFC, they give you two plane tickets and one hotel room. So you've got a plane ticket for yourself and your head coach. You don't see just anyone with one cornerman. I was never going to allow my cornermen to pay to support me. It's almost like you're paying your way through college, and you hope at the end, you get a good enough degree to where you'll make some serious cash."

On the MMA media ignoring UFC's negatives: "Most of the MMA websites are not very truthful. There's two kinds of truth. There's a truth that shows everything, and there's a truth that really focuses on the positive things."
