    Do all UFC champions get pay per view points? I know mighty Mouse negotiated a guarantee rather than ppv points when he became champion but do the rest automatically get to ask for ppv points? I thought that was the norm the last couple years

    It's based on contract negotiation. MM fights for a flat fee.

    He's way overpaid based on the amount of revenue he generates for the UFC.

    It sounds like the UFC gave him a big favor.

    I think it's standard unless you do what MM did and ask for the flat fee. He probably recognized the realities of PPV, which is to say he was not going to be a star who pulls big numbers.

    Obviously it depends on each individual's contract. FYI, MM now gets ppv points.

    They had to hit 80k buys for him to get paid out.

    So now he owes the UFC even more money.

    It is in their contract. Also depends on how big of a draw you are.
