During a recent Q&A session on his YouTube channel, ‘The Count’ was asked for his opinion on the pay dispute that ‘The Predator’ is having with the decision makers at the UFC. Bisping declined to comment on the issue, saying he would rather focus on ‘fun stuff’:
“I stay out of UFC politics, mate. You know what I’m saying? You wanna go talk about your boss publicly? You’ll get fired. I’m not saying I’ll get fired but it’s just, you know, I wanna talk about fun stuff.”
Ngannou has gone on record multiple times to show his unhappiness with his current UFC contract. ‘The Predator’s purse for his fight against Ciryl Gane at UFC 270 was $600,000.
According to a shocking stat, boxer Jack Dempsey made more money for his fight against Gene Tunney in the 1920s than ‘The Predator’ did in his fight against ‘Bon Gamin’.
The Cameroonian also wants to compete in boxing against big names like Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder. However, he is unable to do that due to the restrictions in his UFC fight contract.
