    I think 8+8 is the lowest pay ($8K to show with $8K win bonus), but I could be wrong.

    Seems most get at least 12+12 these days with the occasional 10+10 for real no-namers

    I guarantee you UFC fighters don’t care how little you get paid or whether or not your employer mistreats you.

    I haven’t seen anything under 10/10 in a while. If so I’d guess they are just a local one off fighter on an overseas card. I am seeing more and more 12/12s.

    It is now $12/12 plus $3500 Reebok
    A three fight yearly guarantee
    Plus injury insurance

    So if a fighter fights 2x & loses once he gets $55k that year

    Not that I'm calling bullshit, but is there a source for this? It seems like most guys are fighting 2-3 times a year, 3?

    Its 12/12 now. At UFC 100 (9 years ago) the base was 5/5. In less than an decade base salary has more than doubled. That is an astronomical growth rate, although it could stand to be a bit higher like maybe 18/18.

    Most guys are fighting 2x
    But they are guaranteed a 3rd as far as contractually.
    If they get offered & they turn it down they don't get paid.
    This is pretty common knowledge

    Even bigger named fighters like Nate, Conor etc have to be offered X-amount of fights per year
