I'm in agreement with Luke Thomas when he says "I'd rather see fighters in the UFC paid more and there be less of them".

I'd like to see a massive culling of the lower echelon in favour of a pay increase.

Eh, I don't know, I was mainly kidding, but these guys try to get an edge wherever they can. If that edge means spending a couple of thousand more a year at the chance to compete for millions, then they probably will. And then complain about it.

Granted, he's a higher level fighter and his pay is reflecting that.
The article stated that this breakdown was for one single fight, specifically UFC 162 against Roger Gracie. Where he would only make 53% of his purse, or $20,000.

They then extrapolated that amount to figure out his annual income based on those numbers, but Kennedy was only speaking about one specific fight.
