No doubt, I fully believe in capitalism, but when you here stories of talents like Erick Silva having to sleep in the gym after practice, you wonder what other great talents there are out there that aren't getting paid properly to possibly develop into superstars.

I think it's in the best interest of the UFC to pay these guys a decent salary.

Rarely do I believe in trickle down economics, but in this case I do. If fighters make more, trainers will demand more and that will result in them being able to take on more chances in developing young talent at their gyms.
