    + 130k for 2 fight of the night, + 302k discretionary

    Total = 1.48 million for 18 fights over 8 years.

    Pretty shitty in my opinion considering he was number 2 in the world for like 6 years

    That's not bad because you can get sponsors and endorsements and stuff like that. The UFC gave him exposure to make more money!

    Oh, and that's not even sponsor pay, or any extras like making gym appearances and seminars.

    Sherdog needs to quit obsessively bitching about what a fighter gets paid.

    Sucks for him, but if he finished fights he would be paid more.

    Legs spread, shoulder width apart. Body tight.
    Nonsense. That's what he gets for trying to reach mount and doing nothing every single time. :icon_evil

    He also made sponsor money on all those fights..

    And he never was a draw or a champion.. You need to be a champ in the UFC to make the bank..

    If Fitch had those WWEsque qualities he would have got paid more

    Sonnen is just a loud mouth version of Fitch

    I came to post about exposure as well. While he didn't make as much coin as a top 5 finisher he did garner a decent record that likely proved well for him at another bargining table outside the UFC promotion.
