    He probably has a 4 fight deal and that was the last fight on it. Hopefully he has a good agent for his next deal.

    Yes it does!

    He is going to get paid once Hunt doesn't resign. I am not worried about heavies not getting paid. On average they get more money than the smaller guys.

    I like him and he def should have gotten way more. Good kid. I'm a Cigano fan so I was glad he won but Tuivasa has a future and I'll gladly watch him fight again. HW is shallow and he's a decent fresh face

    So there’s no actual evidence of what he was paid. Nice thread.

    Only had 3 fights in the UFC (4 now)

    What do you guys expect?

    If he tried to leverage the UFC because he's the headliner they would have just got someone else
    LoL

    This data shows what they are unofficially getting paid...So its not far off what they are actually getting.

    Fight out your contract, test the market. A message to each & every fighter on the roster

    Let's be honest. UFC could have purchased a much cheaper tomato can for JDS to beat up on. Be happy with the exposure and get a better contract next time. I enjoyed his fight, but no one was tuning in for him.

    I don't and never claimed to know how much he is paid. Only a gullible sheep would claim to know how much someone is paid based on some blogger inventing shit.

    And like Tuivasa, Blaydes also lost.

    Shock horror, losing purses for relatively unknown (outside of the hardcore fanbase) young fighters aren't very high, especially on international non-PPV cards.

    It doesn't show shit, officially or unofficially. Tuivasa has never fought for a commission that releases salaries. All of his numbers are the writer guessing.

    They start with 10k/10k for his UFC debut and then they increase that by 2k after every fight. The writer has no actual information about what his salary looks like.
