    Does that mean base fighter pay goes up 16k/16k?

    Maybe 15/15 with 60% off of Reebok?

    Pay these fighters what they're worth.

    Prelims fighters are worth 12/12.

    Weird how the same people who calls the cards these guys are on watered down trash then insist they should be paid more.

    If you can't even name half these fighters why are they worth more money. I'm all for fighters getting paid better but it's not the low level Prelims guys who deserve it. They're basically minor leaguers

    Fact 1: These cards these days are, for the most part, absolute trash.

    Fact 2: A company raking in HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of dollars every year off of the blood sweat and broken bones of its employees, should pay them more than 10/10.

    I feel bad for many of these fighters, and I want them to make money and have a good life, but the combination of high purses and USADA has not been good for the sport. Guys pull out as soon as they have a small cough, and can afford to not fight 2-3 times per year..

    They should spend the money on their debt.

    Yes, because Walmart employees are bleeding and breaking their bones for Walmart

    Comparing UFC business model to Walmart's?

    You're clearly the smart one...

    You don't understand how employment works. You are worth what someone is willing to pay you. No one is paying Prelims fighters, or fighters in general, close to what the Ufc is paying them.

    If the fighters want a bigger piece of the pie they can stand up and fight for it like other athletes have. If not don't expect it to be handed out out of the kindness of the UFC's heart. That's not how any business works.
