    America doesn't care about it's blacks why would it care about other countries blacks? Go find some oil if you want America's attention.

    “I genuinely feel if I was a white fighter with the same talents, I would have more support and money,” Page said

    But his dick would be smaller. So there’s that.

    oh Michael, you shoulda kept that to yourself. now you just look foolish. Bellator, of all orgs, would be the least concerned with race IMO

    He makes less money because they don't pay you very much to destroy cans. It's hard to hype a fight when your opponent doesn't even have a wikipedia page.

    Which to me is an indication that MMA promotions pay you based on your draw and not so much your ethnicity. He isn't a draw. That's why he's not getting the contract he wants. Why play the race card?

    Anderson Silva is black and speaks barely any English. He’s one of the biggest draws in history.

    Jon Jones is black and did a hit and run on a pregnant woman and is one of the biggest draws in history.

    Rampage Jackson is black and had police chasing him in a monster truck. He also lost to Forrest Griffin and he’s one of the biggest draws in history.

    Daniel Cormier is black and did a Popeyes video where he ate fried chicken and rubbed his belly and he’s one of the biggest draws in history.

    Sometimes it’s warranted to bring race into the conversation about how some things aren’t fair. Michael Page’s pay scale isn’t one of those times.

    Also, let’s not forget Floyd Mayweather. He can’t read, beat up a woman, did jail time for it and barely puts forth offensive output in a fight and he’s undoubtedly the biggest draw boxing has ever seen.

    I don't think there is an MMA Org in existence that's big enough to choose race over ticket sales.
