Open letter to Tito Ortiz
We respect your impact on the MMA World and all you have accomplished inside the cage. You are a former champ and deserving of praise. Maybe it’s time you let your fighting and actions speak louder than your words.
Today we are questioning all of your statements involving your role in increasing fighter pay. The Bellator payouts say that is a lie.
While you got paid over a quarter of a million for a loss, the victor of your fight received $50,000. Which did not include a win bonus for making you tap in the first round.
Now We understand it’s not up to you to negotiate contracts however while you continue to slam the UFC for its treatment of fighters, it appears other promotions are not doing better. Considering Thomson was paid $10,000 for a win. We find it hard to believe any promotion is taking their fighters seriously. By the way Thomson should receive credit also for his sportsman like conduct after the fight as well. You however lost your fight and stole the thunder from Mcgreary. Taking his moment of glory to talk about yourself being a legend.
Also true is that fighter sponsor pay had not been added into these sums. As We are sure these numbers will change. We reserve the right to comment further when we can add that into the totals.
To all promotions: Its time to respect your fighters bank accounts. The sacrifices they have made and continue to make for your pocket-book is worthy of much more pay.
