Roger Huerta, who is one of the headliners on next week’s UFC 87 card, has blasted the Ultimate Fighting Championship for paying their fighters so little. He is also apparently unhappy with the way the organization treats him and his current contract.
In an interview with Fight! Magazine, Huerta complained about a recent UFC press tour to Miami, Houston, Los Angeles and London where he was paid only a $50-a-day per diem. Huerta also brought up the fact that his training teammate Keith Jardine received only $10,000 to fight in the main event on a UFC card.
According to Huerta,
“The truth is, I don’t really care I fight in the UFC or somewhere else.”
Huerta was the UFC coverboy for their Sports Illustrated feature last year.
