It doesn't seem to be their not paying their fighters as they're not paying their fighters what they should be paid. It's not like Dream who just wasn't paying their fighters. Granted they need to be smarter in booking their fighters!

So because they're still paying their fighters a little of what they're owed it's OK? BAMMA owe (or did owe) Tom Watson several thousand dollars, which he needed to actually make it so he made some money for that fight. As it stood when I read his blog, he was losing money for taking that fight, which just isn't on. BAMMA are putting on decent shows, they're easily the best UK promotion, but if they're going to have any semblance of longevity they need to step their game up and start paying their fighters properly.

No I disagree that they can get away with it. They do need to start paying their fighters what they say they are going to pay them. If they want to stay as the number one UK promotion they do need to pay their fighters what they say they will pay them!
