War Machine goes off on Twitter about state of MMA sponsorship

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.

    Sounds like someone was in a drunken rage. That liquid courage just cost you any future sponsorships and if he wasn’t drunk I pity him for speaking out like he did. Even if what he says is true, you can’t just Jerry McGuire the whole situation and jump ship. Fighters need a union to protect their health and money. Until that happens he needs to chill.

    Ah the good ol’ moronic tweetings of War Machine.

    Listening to him makes it sound like the sponsors MADE him take up fighting. You got into fighting because it’s you’re only chance of making a decent living, deal with it. Unfortunately he’s not very good and a PR nightmare so can’t make good money.

    If there were no sponsors would he continue to fight? Yeah, thought so. Should of stuck to porn, at least fucking up was his job then.

    He may be an obnoxious idiot who does stupid things, but these are all mostly valid points he’s making. The guys who put all the effort into these fights (the fighters) get screwed out of making their worth.
