UFC bantamweight fighter Saidyokub Kakhramonov finds it tough that UFC boss Dana White will go to the extent of handing out a free home to a newcomer while he is sidelined.
Dana White recently won the internet over after Contender Series fighter Joe Pyfer was given a free home to live in and some extra money. Joe after winning his fight at the DCWS, reached out to the UFC boss and explained his living condition. Dana was gracious enough to help the fighter out.
This news has not sat well with UFC bantamweight Saidyokub Kakhramonov however. In a recent tweet, Said wrote out to the UFC boss and pleaded for a fight. “FYI I fought two times since last august. I don’t ask for money or home to live just give me a fucking fight. @danawhite I’ll do the rest,” wrote the bantamweight.
Said has fought twice in the UFC. He made his debut in August 2021 and won the fight against Trevin Jones via a wonderful submission. His second fight came almost a year later against Ronnie Lawrence in July 2022 where he won a decisive victory. He has a record of 10-2 in his career right now.
“Start your own promotion” – Dana White’s answer to fighters who have problems with how the UFC is run
Dana is no stranger to feuds with his fighters. Several fighters in the past have tried to come at the UFC President. Dana has always been brutally honest about how he likes to run his organization and is always open to letting fighters out if they don’t like how things work in the UFC.

Be it fighters’ pay or the matchups they are offered, it is either Dana’s way or the highway. “Believe me, these guys get paid what they’re supposed to get paid. They eat what they kill. If you don’t like it, there’s a simple solution to this problem. Go start your own MMA organization,” said Dana in a GQ interview about poor fighter treatment.
The UFC has stringent contracts that do not allow fighters to fight outside of the promotion while still under contract. The going gets tough for fighters when they aren’t offered any fights from the promotion.
