Travis Browne Bashes UFC Fighters Complaining About Pay: "They’re Just Whiny Little Bitches"

Former UFC heavyweight fighter Travis Browne doesn't understand fighters complaining about the way the promotion pays them.

Browne spoke about the issue of fighter pay on the latest episode of his podcast Tough Business, where he had UFC President Dana White on and went on the following rant about how he views the current trend of fighters being more public about wanting to be compensated more by the company.

"You guys always paid me what you said you were gonna pay me," Browne said (h/t Bloody Elbow). "And most of the time, it was actually more. So, all these people that are complaining about it, that are just talking shit about it, at the end of the day, I’m the one that signed that f—ng contract. And then I’m gonna turn around and I'm gonna bitch about it? Or i’mma bitch about it to a f—ng reporter or something like that? That doesn’t make sense to me as a man. I signed a contract. If I wanted to get paid more, and you guys have always been upfront about it. ‘Hey, if you’re a free agent, go find a better deal.’ I’ve always felt like I was part of the UFC. When one of my contracts was up, we had a bigger offer, but I was, like, ‘Listen, the best fighters are here in the UFC, and I’m not trying to be a B-Level fighter. I’m trying to compete against the best.’ You guys have always treated me right. The pay has been there, and again, it’s always been at least what the contract was, and most of the time it was more. So these people that are complaining, people in the media that don’t f—ng hear that they hear the little bitch that’s crying and complaining. Because you get these, like, entitled people. Or I don’t know where the f—k it comes from. It’s like, they’re just whiny little bitches, and then they go to more whiny little bitches that’ll write about it."

Browne went 18-7-1 as a professional mixed martial artist and lost his last four Octagon appearances, most recently to Aleksei Oleinik via a second-round submission due to a rear-naked choke at UFC 213 in July 2017. He's gone on to marry former UFC women's bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey, with the couple expecting their first child soon.
