As Destiny’s Child famously asked, “Can you pay my bills? Can you pay my telephone bills? Do you pay my automo-bills?”

Akira Corassani (pictured) merely wants Fear the Fighter to pay their sponsorship bills.

According to the UFC featherweight, the mixed martial arts clothing company has failed to hold up their end of the bargain after he donned their duds inside the octagon in his last two fights.

“@Fearthefighter You have 48 hours to pay me my money for my last two fights or I’m going to the @ufc @danawhite,” Corassani tweeted Friday night.

“we would if his manger would send us invoices on time,” FTF responded.

“don’t put this on my management ! Invoice was sent sept 10. U claim the check was lost in the warehouse!” Corassani countered.

Corassani lost his last two bouts. I’m not saying that’s the reason he still hasn’t received payment, because it shouldn’t matter, but there’s a higher probability the checks would have already been deposited in his bank account had he won.

“The Ultimate Fighter 14” contestant had rattled off three straight prior to his current skid.

Corassani didn’t mention how much money he’s owed by Fear the Fighter.
