UFC bantamweight Julia Avila is 9-2 in MMA 3-1 in the UFC, but had a lot of fights have fall through, plus an injury and pregnancy has caused her to fight just 4 times in 3 years.
She says: Fighter pay is great when you have a fight; I had 9 cancelled fights one year and since my injury 2021, I had to get a job to make ends meet
and have insurance to cover my pregnancy. I love being a part of the UFC, it’s a dream come true. But it is a temporary dream.
I love being in the UFC. I love fighting for the fans and putting on a show, but it’s a dog and pony show. I’m just as replaceable as anyone else on the
roster and fans will be none the wiser. That’s the hardest pill to swallow.
It's a sobering realization you're essentially meaningless and replaceable to something or someone one else, but what she is saying is correct.
A lot of fans don't know who she is, and if they do know who she is they can't remember when she last fought, and may not even be aware she's still fighting
