Charlie Radtke Demands Payment for Interviews at UFC Fight Night 235 Presser

Charlie
Radtke continues to build his heel image in the
Ultimate Fighting Championship.

Radtke had a successful second promotional outing at
UFC Fight Night 235 on Saturday, knocking out Gilbert
Urbina in the very first round. “Chuck Buffalo” subsequently
shouted out his teammate Belal
Muhammad while slamming the UFC’s biggest active heel, Colby
Covington.

While Radtke’s post-fight press conference started off well, the
welterweight suddenly made a bizarre demand when questioned by a
reporter, leading to an awkward and abrupt end to the session
(video via FanSided MMA).

“With a knockout like that, you know people are going to be
talking, wanting to see more of you,” a reporter said to Radtke.
“How soon do we get you back in that cage? Is there anybody that
you would want to match up with?”

Radtke responded by demanding money for interview appearances.

“How much money you got? That’s what it is,” Radtke said. “You guys
get these interviews for free. I need to get paid. Let’s go.”

Radtke then asked for the next question, which was met by silence
as the fighter took a large gulp of water. Radtke then said a
defiant “good” before walking off.

Radtke made his promotional debut at UFC 293 in Australia this past
September, earning a decision win over City Kickboxing’s Mike
Mathetha. He went on a profanity laden rant in his post-fight
interview, which included a homophobic slur for which the fighter
later
publicly apologized.
