Im really curious about this. How does it work? Some guys on the prelims are making 5000-10 000 per fight and some guys are taking hundreds of tousands per fight. There is no difference between the risk those fighters are putting themselves into. Every single one of them is risking their long term health and even life, so when salaries in UFC vary this much it completely staggers me. And on top of that, HOW come that Conor McGregor made 16 millions for defeating Jose Aldo? Why are some fighters getting so much money? I understand its usually the marketable fighters, like McGregor, Rousey, Overeem etc...but despite al that, based on what UFC gives its fighters salary? Just based on how they feel?? Shouldnt there be some kind of strict system based on which they would give their fighters money? Because if truly they are just giving them money based on how they feel they desrve it , then its very wrong and probably even against the principles of labour law.
