Heath Herring Discusses Working Conditions

Despite not being seen since Brock Lesnar broke his orbital bone, Heath Herring spoke out against working conditions in the UFC in a move thats likely to infuriate Dana White;

 

“With the way the UFC’s pay scale is and as much as it costs me to get ready for a fight, at the end of the day I made like 40 grand.” - Heath Herring, explaining his two year absence from fighting. Chris Leben and I thought he might have gone back to Japan or some place where the competition is a little easier.

“These guys are literally making money off our blood, sweat and tears.” 

“We don’t get any health insurance. If you get hurt training for a fight, you’re screwed. It’s really kind of crazy.” - Herring said.

“Dana White’s got six Ferraris. Hell, I just want one.” - He added.  

 

Evidently, given most fighters do 3-4 fights per year that would mean, when he returns, that Herring should earn 120,000-160,000.

 

I personally would like to wish Herring all the luck in the world achieving his dream of owning a ferrari, and hope that he is able to survive on such a paltry income.

    Poor him.

    Complaining in the middle of the economy in the state it is now is going to cause some bad karma for his ass.

    Let’s see how he feels when UFC drops his ass since he cant compete anyway – he just makes excuses about his horrible performances each match.
