After being knocked out last weekend, a GoFundMe for Bea Malecki has popped up. She wrote on her birthday IG post “Plz tell me that becoming 30, being broke and getting knocked out is the new sexy???”

In an interview with Pat McAfee on his show, the UFC president expressed his frustration with the fighter pay allegations and asked the haters on the internet to “go f***” themselves. He also claimed that fighter pay has indeed gone up:

“First of all, no promoter in the history of the world has done what we have done. And when you talk about fighter pay, we’re the only promoter in the history of the world ever, that pays people more than what they are actually contracted to make. And that’s every single fighter on the roster makes more than they are contracted to make. Fighter pay has gone up.”

As to why full fighter pay details are not disclosed to the media, White said that he doesn’t share that information with the press because he “can’t stand them” and “doesn’t trust them.”
