Brendan Schaub has asked the UFC to treat their fighters better.
Schaub, who is a retired heavyweight MMA fighter, supported Sean O’Malley’s new claims that he would not consider tougher ranked competition unless there was better compensation. Schaub voiced his opinions on the same topic, and asked the UFC to treat their fighters better.
As reported by MMA Weekly, Schaub said, “Sean’s in a spot where he can talk like this and he’ll be okay, ‘cause he’s undeniable.
“He just has to keep winning, because as soon as you start losing, they’re gonna bring this back and hold it against you. But right now he’s fine.”
“I’m with him though. F**k fighting in New York, with the taxes, flying out there, his coach isn’t there. Who cares if he fights a month later? It’s Vegas. Be cool, UFC. The UFC has to do a better job of not treating their employees like they work for f**king Apple.
“This isn’t some China slave factory. Like, treat them like human beings, it’s going to go so much further for everybody involved. Just be cool.
Treat them right
“Like why not be like ‘Hey Sean, we want you to fight.’ ‘Ah, my coach isn’t going to be there and I don’t wanna pay the taxes in New York. Can I just fight on the next card?’ ‘Yeah, we’ll get you an opponent, no problem.’ Click. Move on to the next guy.
“I’m with ‘Suga’ on this. Don’t treat him like s**t, man. There’s just no need for it,” Schaub concluded.
Schaub, who retired from professional MMA with a record of 10-5, has vocally backed Sean, and has spoken against the UFC. The claims are strong, and there will surely be more to this after such a passionate rant.
