Ronda Rousey’s husband Travis Browne blasts UFC fighters complaining about salary
Ronda Rousey’s husband Travis Browne fired shots at UFC fighters who always complain about not getting paid well.
In a recent episode of his own podcast “Tough Business,” Browne told his guest and UFC president Dana White that it’s not the promotion’s fault if fighters feel that they should’ve been paid more.
According to Browne, who is a former UFC heavyweight contender, fighters signed a contract and it doesn’t make any sense to “b—h about it” as it has been put into paper in the first place.
“So, all these people that are complaining about it, that are just talking s–t about it, at the end of the day, I’m the one that signed that f—–g contract,” Browne told White. “And then I’m gonna turn around and b—h about it? That doesn’t make sense to me as a man. I signed a contract.”
Based on his own experience, the 39-year-old even suggested that in the UFC, a proven effective way to earn more money or get a better offer is to always perform at the highest level.
More importantly, Browne insisted that contrary to what some UFC fighters whine about these days, he didn’t have any issues about fighter pay as the company even pay him more “most of the time.”
“You [the UFC] guys have always treated me right,” he added. “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.”
