UFC welterweight Jorge Masvidal took to social media to scold the “White Knights” who have commentating gigs with the UFC for their stances on fighter pay out.
Masvidal is presently locked in a contract stalemate with the UFC. In its place of using the UFC’s offer to fight Kamaru Usman at UFC 251, which he believes is beneath truthful industry value, Masvidal made the decision to keep out rather. The UFC then named on Gilbert Burns to consider on Usman in the key event of UFC 251, whilst Masvidal sits on the sidelines instead.
For Masvidal, this is essential to him simply because he is one particular of the fighters foremost the charge to reform fighter spend. Alongside with UFC light-weight heavyweight champion Jon Jones, Masvidal is one particular of the leading fighters who are out there hoping to make a optimistic improve for the relaxation of the fighters, as they want the UFC to give them a even larger share of the profits.
However, when fighters like Masvidal and Jones direct the charge from the UFC, fighters like Daniel Cormier have in its place taken the UFC’s facet on things. Masvidal certainly has not favored what he’s heard from DC and some of the other UFC fighters who also perform for the firm as commentators, and he place them on blast on Twitter.
And for the #whiteknights that have commentating jobs with the ufc that say “just fight” you men ought to be embarrassed to simply call yourselves present/former fighters. Not one particular of you been executing it as lengthy as me and like me. There’s a reason you are “commentating”

And for the #whiteknights that have commentating employment with the ufc that say “just fight” you guys really should be ashamed to phone yourselves latest/previous fighters. Not a single of you been executing it as long as me and like me. There is a rationale you are “commentating”
There does not seem to be an finish in sight to Masvidal’s remarkably-publicized struggle with the UFC for much more funds. UFC president Dana White has taken various photographs at Masvidal in current interviews and has scoffed at the notion of spending fighters far more funds. But with so much momentum behind an maximize in fighter pay, perhaps a change is ultimately coming.
Do you consider Jorge Masvidal is suitable?
