You only know what the UFC tells them they are worth from a position of absolute power and what the fighters accept as their worth from a position of, in most cases, no leverage at all.

comments like this are truly scary
But he is right. The under card fighters are almost all completely replaceable with no specific value attributed to most of them. And as long as that is the case individually they will have very little value.

And when they proved their salt they will get paid like the guys that get the big bucks. They don't deserve it yet. Why don't people get this. How much does an average dude on the Nationwide tour in golf make? A D league B-Baller? A A level baseball player? Not much. That is exactly what they are worth because no one is spending their hard earned money to watch them.
