Dana’s Response To Aldo’s Pay Gripes: ‘Jose Aldo’s Pay Is Up To Jose Aldo’


“Everyone needs to make more money. A guy like Jose Aldo, he’s the pound-for-pound best fighter in the world for two rounds, and then he starts to slide off. Here’s the reality. Our champions are our pay-per-view partners. How many pay-per-views you sell, how much you sell, you get a piece of the action. Yeah, [the smaller fighters] don’t sell as much as the bigger guys and a guy like Jose Aldo has the talent and the ability to be a big star. It’s up to a guy like Jose Aldo to make people care and want to watch your fights.”

UFC President Dana White discussed the recent pay woes of his featherweight champ Jose Aldo, with Bas Rutten of Inside MMA. (Replay HERE)
