War Machine isn’t happy with how fighters get treated in mixed martial arts. He went off on Twitter and said exactly how he felt.

@WarMachine170’s recent twitter posts:

“Even the GSP’s/Anderson Silva’s are getting raped, yeah you/they THINK they are getting PAID, but when compared to Mayweather: RAPED!”

“90% of professional MMA fighters have ZERO health insurance.”

“And, just for the record, it is not just ME having these problems idiots, it’s ALL us guys fighting in ‪@BellatorMMA and the ‪@ufc”

“The ONLY MMA company I know of that pays their fighters fairly is ‪@americanamma , they don’t sponsor me but ya’ll should ONLY buy from them.”

“I do have ONE good sponsor though and that’s ‪@gardenofliferaw , and what do you know, it’s a NON MMA company, big surprise.”

“Good morning cheap [expletive] MMA establishment,while ya’ll continue being rich us fighters continue to train with all types of [expletive] up injuries”

“No wonder why Evan Tanner killed himself once his career was over, yeah I [expletive] said it, it’s TRUE! How many more of us will do the same?”

“And ALL of you MMA fighters who are seeing my [explective] posts and AREN’T RT’ing them have no [expletive]! You know I speak the truth.”

“EVERYONE in MMA is making money EXCEPT the [expletive] fighters! I bet Arianny Celeste makes more [expletive] money holding up a [expletive] ring card!”

“I’ll wear a BLANK shirt, a BLANK hat and BLANK shorts-no they won’t be blank, they’ll say, “MMA SPONSORS ARE CHEAP [expletive]” on them all!”

“All of you dumb [expletive] fighters need to start telling these companies to [expletive] OFF! Don’t accept their low ball offers, make them pay us fair!”

“You [expletive] clothing companies, promoters & managers get rich off of OUR pain and suffering ya’ll and have the nerve to nickel & dime us?”

“Here’s a big [expletive] YOU to all you cheap [expletive] MMA sponsors out there, kill yourselves, we bust our asses in that cage for PENNIES, [expletive] you.”

“You know what, [expletive] it, I AM gonna go buy a Lotto ticket! If I win I’m gonna give that money back to that ‪@ufc guy who got his bonus stripped”

War Machine (12-4) is slated to face Blas Avena (8-6) for Bellator MMA on June 19 at
Winstar World Casino at Thackerville, Okla. He last defeated Roger Huerta via technical knockout in the third round at UWF 1: Huerta vs. War Machine in November 2011.
