Something I haven’t seen anyone mention is the tax implications of a fighters “reported” salary, versus the “tips”, essentially, that the UFC gives out behind the scenes.

It might also have implications on the way UFC files its own taxes as well.

Randy is a true professional. I hope Dana White can a learn a thing or 2 from the way that he handles this type of situation. To be honest…I can really see another Orginazation topping UFC in about 5 years.
