UFC vet Joe Lauzon was one of the fighters to air his displeasure with the original UFC Reebok payment structure, which was set to be based on rankings.
Now, with the payment plan set to be based on tenure, Lauzon is changing his tune a little bit. Here’s what he said on MMAJunkie Radio.
“I’m obviously very, very happy about the change. I went from being basically bottom tier to close to the top tier. I think I’m in the second tier because I think it’s like 21 fights plus. I think I’m in the 16 to 20; this is going to be my 19th fight. I definitely think it’s a better way of doing it.
“Of course I’m going to be a little bit biased because I’ve had so many fights. I look at it as I’ve had a lot of fights. I’ve paid dues. It kind of makes more sense. I’m one of those guys that got the UFC some good recognition and some good attention.”
