UFC Phoenix results: Yair Rodriguez wins

Rodriguez wins

“I think less [than $400] bro. It means so much for me bro. I’ve been working hard. My last fight was in November. It’s a long time to fight this fight, but I’m so proud that I could be here and that means so much for me. That just Dana White just called me to talk with me and say, “That was a great fight.” And I’m just so happy. I’m going to keep moving forward and keep training hard.”

TUF Latin winner and UFC 188 standout Yair Rodriguez went into the octagon last Saturday with less than $400 to his name.

The fighter talked in a post-fight interview about his financial situation and mentioned just how much that bonus he got was needed.

Is it ridiculous how little these guys have?
