    UFC fighters on average make much more than anywhere else.

    A few very good but not champ level guys might make a bit more over there like Bader or Moose but thats about it.

    Entry level guys are paid more and so are guya that get PPV points. Bonuses matter a lot too.

    And Bellator is backed by a Massive media conglomerate that has more money than UFC. If anything they should be paying there fighters more than UFC lol

    That’s not actually real is it ? Most people make more than that in a month and their job is mostly sitting on their ass doing nothing. Bellator is still a pretty big promotion, the worst guys should still get atleast 10-15k.

    $4000, potentially $8000 for 20 minutes max of work? That’s pretty good.

    For real though, that’s embarrassing. Why risk your health for that?

    Jus watch a few secondary/tertiary orgs. Fighters left and right calling out for the UFC to notice and pick them up. One last eve had a Bellator Contract as a prize (Cyborg's Promotion).

    Just so many fighters and orgs out there the big(ger) guys have 0 incentive.

    Sponsorships. You can wear your sponsors in the cage on the way out. If that was allowed in the ufc. Fighters would make more money in just sponsors. Than their purse.

    you really think most people make 4 thousand a month?
    Are you a boy or out of touch with reality?

    I bet you would be surprised what most humans make a month.

    How is Islam Mamedov making 10+10 in his debut, but Gadzhi Rabadanov is making 25+25 in his debut?

    Goiti Yamauchi in his 16th Bellator fight making 32+32. Pathetic.

    Good to see Karakhanyan getting paid.

    So they should go the ONE root and endlessly run Bellator at a loss? And who would they even spend that money on?

    TS is being disingenuous because I’ve told him several times. The overwhelming majority of the fighters making those 4K deals are essentially trying out. They fight on the untelevised undercards and furthermore they are not locked into long term deals. They sign a 1 fight deal as a tryout and then are allowed to continue fighting for whatever promotion they are “on loan” from or are signed to.
    Personally I liken it to The contender series. Those guys make dirt cheap wages and are trying out to make it in the UFC.
