Jose Aldo Voices Frustration With UFC Pay – Says He Feels Devalued
Posted by Larry Csonka on 05.27.2014



- UFC Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo recently discussed his frustration with his UFC pay, and the pay of the lighter weight fighters. Here are the highlights…

On Feeling Devalued By His UFC Pay: I do feel devalued, for sure. Every fighter dreams to reach a level where he will make good money. I have other thoughts nowadays - I've been around the world, I have a big wide vision about that. At the same time that they give us our business, they could improve it (payment). We bring millions for the company, I'm a very sellable fighter and everybody wants to watch my fights.

On Being Sad Over Pay: We see a lightweight being paid as much as a beginner. We see a heavyweight non-champion and non-title challenger earning a lot more than us. This situation makes us a little sad but I have to keep battling, we can't lose our focus.

On How He Can Change Things: I don't know, man. We kill ourselves in training, we give the best of us to be there give the people a show, bring records to the UFC. We give everything we have but we don't get the recognition we deserve. I don't know what we have to do, if we need to step in there and kill the other guy, I don't know.

On The Language Barrier: I don't know if that is the case. We can feel that it can be bad for guys like me, Renan Barao and Anderson Silva because we can't speak English fluently. What matters inside there is how we fight, not the language. We have to negotiate. Who takes care of this for me is Dede Pederneiras. I'm there to give what people want to see.
