Mayweather: Dana White using UFC fighters to make himself rich
(mmamania.com)
Think Conor McGregor is rich? He is, but even the millions banked by "Mystic Mac" pale in comparison to the revenue generated by Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White (and his 30 Ferraris). "It's easy to get a ton of money off these UFC guys while they're not really getting paid," boxing's Floyd Mayweather Jr. told Fight Hype. "And he's living better than the UFC guys. They say ‘Oh, Floyd is living better than all his fighters,' well guess what, I was a fighter myself. So I'll put in the work on both sides."

UFC 204 is down to 11 fights. Bantamweight Ian Entwistle (9-3) was forced to withdraw from the card Friday afternoon due to illness, UFC officials announced. Entwistle did not show up to the official weigh-in, so it is unclear if his illness was related to a bad weight cut. As a result, his opponent Rob Font (12-2), who did successfully weigh in, will not compete on the card but will receive his show money.

Roy Nelson will be judged for his post-fight actions in Brazil. According to the STJDMMA document sent to MMA Fighting on Thursday, Nelson was notified on Wednesday and issued a 90-day temporary suspension retroactive to Sept. 29.

The attorney suggests a 14-month suspension and $18,500 fine, but it’s still up to the president of STJDMMA to evaluate the case. Nelson has seven business days to present his defense, STJDMMA explained.
