This seems to be a trend with fighters saying they aren't paid what they feel they are worth.

Yeah.

In terms of how the UFC treats its fighters, he's spot on. Particularly with what went down with Renan Barao. A lot of very legitimate issues being raised here.

I just wish it came from a better source. The timing isn't just suspect, it's downright laughable. And everything Wanderlei got punished for, he brought on himself. Including his lack of fights - he's the one who wanted the year off, and he's the one that LITERALLY ran away from a drug test.
