Jeremy Botter@jeremybotterMMA Senior WriterJuly 15, 2013

When Matt Hughes first rose to the top of the UFC, he earned a pittance compared to the salaries of today's top UFC superstars.

That's why Hughes, now an executive-level employee with Zuffa and a Hall of Fame member, cannot believe his ears when he hears stories of fighters complaining about their pay. 

Hughes sounded off on the subject during a recent exclusive interview with Bleacher Report during the UFC Fan Expo in Las Vegas, Nev.

Check out the video above, and leave your own thoughts on fighter pay below.
