Nate Quarry is thankful to UFC president Dana White for helping pay the bills when it came to back surgery. The former middleweight contender wasn’t able to train and informed White who paid for the operation years ago.
“I will always be indebted to Dana White for helping me there and I know he’s done that over and over again for other guys,” said Quarry to Bloody Elbow. “He’s one of those guys who’s generous to a fault with helping fighters – helping people in general. You hear that over and over again. But he’s also a cutthroat business man.”
It comes after a handful of ex-UFC fighters have been complaining about the lack of compensation from the promotion.
Quarry retired at 12-4 in 2010. He spent a majority of his career with the UFC and retired following a TKO loss to Jorge Rivera at UFC Fight Night.
