    Oh I wouldn’t doubt for a second that there a tons of regional orgs, including ones I know/go to, that only put on a couple shows before calling it quits because they actually pay all their fighters, haha.

    Posted this before,but will post again for clarity.

    Not defending that abysmal pay, but let’s look at things a little more objectively.

    It’s bad, but I guess it’s like a paid internship. You get to work at the place for peanuts. Your true payment is the experience, exposure, and if we like you, a job offer.

    On top of all that, if he gets an impressive K.O. or sub they are likely to show the highlight during the main card. And if he gets a quick finish, it’s not unheard of that they show the fight as filler if too many other fights are ending in the first round.

    I'm sorry but if you are foolish enough to agree to it it is his own damn fault I have no pity whatsoever for him.

    Dumb move. If he could rack up a few wins in Bellator it would be great for his career. He should have thought of this as an investment in his future. As it stands, he's a nobody that blew his chance at fighting for a major org. Plenty of fighters who ended up as champs starting out fighting for peanuts. Got to pay your dues.

    agreed. not mad at the kid for denying the contract, but you don't burn the second biggest mma org in the United States. a truly stupid move.

    that said, it has already been established that this wasn't an actual bellator card. this was some event monster was throwing together for some nascar fans in conjunction with bellator.

    I agree.
    If you are starting off, you will be paying out of your pocket.. amateur or pro. I would simply request for financial assistance when I would have to go to the hospital.

    $250 covers a hotel room, dinner, and alcohol to drown the pain away.

    Usually house shows have half the fights as amatuer, so its free. The main event is usually 1-4 grand. Usually 2 grand.
