UFC has a lot of money being a multi-billion dollar company, but apparently, they can’t pony up the dough to pay for Evan Dunham’s ambulance ride after UFC 216 nearly 1 year ago.
Dunham has one fight left in his UFC contract before he intends on retiring from MMA, but he was sent to the hospital for a post-fight evaluation following a majority draw result in his UFC 216 fight with Beneil Dariush. The fight lasted 3 furious rounds, and Dunham didn’t want to take an ambulance ride to the hospital for a check-up but the ringside physicians insisted on it.
MMA Mania reports that nearly one-year later, Dunham has still not been reimbursed for his ambulance ride by UFC. He was actually suspended for 180 days by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for “blurred vision” following his UFC 216 fight as well, but that didn’t cause UFC to pay any quicker.
At this point, it looks like Dunham is still on the hook for his ambulance ride last year. Dunham is scheduled to fight his final contest in the UFC at UFC Fight Night 137: “Manuwa vs Santos” on September 22nd in Brazil.
