Evan-Dunham-696x399.pngAfter his rousing draw with Beneil Dariush, which occurred at UFC 216 in October of 2017, Evan Dunham was sent to the hospital by ring-side physicians. Though Dunham absorbed considerable damage in this fight, he didn’t actually want to board an ambulance, as he’d  had a very hard time getting the UFC to cover the ambulance bill after his 2013 scrap with Gleison Tibau.

 

All the same, Evan Dunham heeded the advice of the UFC’s doctors, and boarded an ambulance to the hospital, keen to make sure he didn’t sustain any serious damage in his fight with Dariush. Two fights later, he’s now “dealing with collections” as the UFC has still failed to pay his ambulance bill for that fight.

 

"Dealing with collections right now,” Dunham said in his first Tweet on the matter. “UFC never paid my ambulance bill from two fights ago. Even though I sent the bill in multiple times to whoever is supposed to be handling it.”

 

“Funny thing is that I didn’t want to go in the ambulance in the first place,” he added in a second Tweet, touching on the lesson he learned after his fight with Tibau. “Because it took them so long to pay the bill from the Tibau fight, but they insisted. One more fight and I am done.”

 

 

Sad treatment of a guy who will be entering his twentieth UFC fight next time, I know he's not a champ or anything but doesn't sound like the best treatment of a long time company man.

Those are the only fights he can win.  It's like he's trying to set a record for most knockout losses in a row.

I just saw him on Bellator I think, he got cracked...haven't seen him win in years. Always seemed to have speed and talent, but his fight strategy sucks.

All he does is miss weight and lose... literally.  He just got knocked out by a 40 year old Takanori Gomi who was riding a 6 fight losing streak himself.

I would think Dunham has his own personal ambulance on stand-by by now,

Gomi is a legend tho and was only on a 6 fight losing streeak cause no one would just stand and trade with him. Melvin stood and traded like a real man and paid the price.

Talent or no talent, if anyone else got hurt at any other place of employment and required an ambulance, workplace covers that even if you fail drug test and get fired, so why wouldn't ufc.....

Because they are not employees?
If I'm at work and get hurt, the general contractor is not on the hook to pay the ambulance, nor would a homeowner.

I'm contracted to do x,y,z and they pay me a sum for it.

Not saying it's not in his contract that they do pay, but just because he fights under their banner doesn't mean he gets the perks of a regular Joe blow employee.

Well I actually am a general contractor and everyone on my payroll is covered when on my site receiving a company check from me.
I get the whole independent sub and what not, but ufc fighters are signed exclusively to work(fight) only for the ufc, therefore they are not subs but rather employees under contract, thus why they want a union or something similar. The ufc has it worded to where they are bending the laws from the exclusivity of fighters fighting outside ufc all the way to medical coverage and even to a 1099 independent contractor filing status its all corkscrewing the laws of the land, the only thing making it possible is its hq in nevada allowing them to fall under right to work laws

So if you die in the octagon the UFC will not pay your funeral expenses?

 

That's nice to know.

Good for you,m8! The IRS has a field day with GC's running afoul of that chit.

As a General Contractor you should already know, that sub's are hired under the General's contract...but carry their own health insurance and liability. Generals oversee sub's work and deadlines, the UFC contract with sub fighters is no different.

I get all that, I was saying anyone receiving a check from me is covered while on my site,i know subs carry their own, but if my guy gets injured outside of my site hes not covered by me. I'm saying that the ufc has it worded so they get the best of both situations, they get all the perks of being an employer (pay scale no bids,exclusivity,dates ect)and all the perks of hiring subs (no liability, insurance, guarantees on anything) they are bending the system
