Seemingly out of nowhere, former UFC middleweight and one-time title challenger Nate Quarry, came out this week and pretty much started bashing the ethics of the UFC.
“I like Nate Quarry. Let me tell you what. You’re never going to hear me say anything negative about any of the guys from season one of The Ultimate Fighter. I love those guys, I respect them, I always had a great relationship with Nate Quarry. Lorenzo said it the best, it’s unfortunate that Nate fought at a time when we were still $44 million in the hole, you know?”
“It’s easy to look back and go “they invested $44 million and this thing’s worth a few billion. Easy to say that now. But back then? … It was so close to being shut down and going away. There was a time I was like, we’re never, fucking ever getting that $44 million back. It’s never going to happen. There was a time when I absolutely believed that.”
While we all still may agree that fighter’s deserve to make a bigger piece of the UFC’s pie, it’s hard to argue with that logic when discussing Nate’s argument.
