Dana White Refusing To Pay Renan Barao For UFC 177

UFC President, Dana White revealed this week that he is refusing to pay former bantamweight champion, Renan Barao his show money for his failed UFC 177 fight with T.J. Dillashaw last night in Sacramento, California.

Dana, speaking during the UFC 177 post-fight media scrum said:

“Barao’s not making any money. I’m not paying Barao. Barao showed up and didn’t fight, (and) the other kid that didn’t make weight. The other kids will get paid. There’s no excuse for not making weight. But (Barao) paid for it. He hurt us, he messed with the show, but that kid didn’t make a paycheck, he’s going home with no money. He’s going home without a dime. He just paid for a camp, and who knows when he’s going to fight again.”
