Not everything is always as it seems. After news of his 2013 earnings broke on his Twitter feed earlier today, Bubba McDaniel has given a statement to Bloody Elbow about what happened with his W2 Tweet. Apparently, the message was originally intended only for his accountant, but got mis-sent as a public post on his twitter account instead.
"First off, I want to say that this was a mistake, and I'm totally appalled. I didn't need to have anyone think that I'm complaining. I've dreamed about being an athlete my whole life. I'm not complaining at all. And, actually, I have a part time job, and actually I just got a second part time job."
"I signed the contract, I'm not complaining about it."
"I was sending the info to my accountant and I saw "posted on Twitter." I thought I deleted it the split second it posted, I didn't think anyone saw it."
"I'm not a guy to jump down somebody's throat, though. It's me that stepped wrong in the first place."
It's rough being in the mix of fighters vying for a spotlight and a bigger platform in the UFC's ever-growing roster, but it sounds like McDaniel just made an honest, if awkward, mistake.
