Tyson Pedro Announces Retirement From UFC After Loss Because He’s Broke, Says He Might Have To ‘Rob Someone’

America's tax system is an absolute disgrace. Here's another example.

UFC fighter tyson pedro (Australia) lost to an undefeated team on Saturday night. Vitor Petrino (Brazil) and announced his retirement after the loss. But it's not because he doesn't have any more fight left in him, it's because he's completely broke and doesn't see his family enough. But most notable is the financial situation.

After the fight, the 32-year-old Pedro placed his gloves in the center of the Octagon, which generally signaled his retirement.

But it was in the post-match press conference that Pedro really raised the red flag.

“with” [tax] If I get deducted points and lose tonight's fight, I'll probably have to rob someone in the parking lot. …Who has the most? ” said Pedro.


TKO and the UFC also deserve some blame for underpaying their fighters, especially considering TKO turned into an incredible draw. $1.3 billion But the biggest takeaway for me was what he said about taxes.

The US government is pointlessly taxing everything (just to send it to Ukraine), and Pedro probably still gets a solid salary than most, so good ol' Uncle Sam spends a good chunk of his time. You know that. And I know from personal experience that it's difficult to live here because taxes are so high. If only you knew my financial situation…

What a shame, dude. The American tax system makes it extremely difficult to earn money just to survive. It's really sad. (Related: UNLV football coach Barry Odom tries to ride a bull to raise money for his program, only to get thoroughly beaten back)
