    The point is that if boxers can get paid millions to fight in low stakes fight on cable TV, then PPV headliners in MMA should be making a lot more money.

    The promoter/fighter revenue split in MMA is garbage. This isn't disputable.

    so you pick a top five highest paid athlete in the world, with a quarter of that coming in endorsements, and apply that as the standard?

    That “gay” manager of his setting up some nice contract negotiations I see....


    What a fighter makes is negotiated by the contractor (UFC) and the fighters representative (manager).

    yep.

    UFC (the premium league) is shit, but MMA payment in general is even worse.

    You dont like UFC money? Well ... you dont have many options as a mma fighter.

    well the money in mma is way different than all other sports. mma fighters arent ever gone be like nfl guys. the ufc will never get 25 billion in tv deals with 5 different networks and have all the top ranked shows on tv.

    espn been good for the ufc. just like hos fox was good for the ufc first. i wish the reebok deal was different but it is what it is.

    He won. If Gastelum won he prolly would have pocketed $350k and Israel the $150k. Champ cash and runner up cash.
