Page VanZant is looking for a pay raise for her next contract with the UFC, because she is unhappy with what she’s earning from her currant deal.
The flyweight sensation has just one fight remaining on her current contract and is poised to fulfil it, despite her injuries. But the next deal she signs has to earn her significantly more money.
“I make way more money sitting at home, posting pictures on Instagram, than I do fighting. When I did my contract negotiation the last time, the talk was, “I can’t pay you more than a female champion.’ Okay, but why are comparing me to just women? All of us should be getting paid more in general. I want a significant pay raise, to be completely honest. I’ve just been extremely accomplished outside of the UFC, as well as inside of the UFC. Five wins in the UFC, four finishes, I’ve been main event twice, and I think someone with those accolades should be paid more.”, VanZant told Ariel Helwani.
