    Depends on which level you are in which sport. I know some low tier boxers who would love UFC pay.
    Saw Brand was 30k and not 300k. Was going to say Ward should be up there in pay.

    So a nobody is making a higher flat fee than a former champ in Dillashaw? Doesn't seem like people are reaching when they say that.

    I don't know know who Brand is and he made 30 K , People that i have no idea who there are in MMA make 1-5 K .
    As for Ward 850 K that's pretty much the upper echelon of MMA & i mean the top 3 guys.
    So what is your point again ?

    Why would someone like Ward be fighting a nobody?

    Andre Ward has zero momentum due to the fact that he fights NOBODY...and he was out for a LONG TIME.

    The chump he's fighting is a 85 to 1 underdog or some shit...so he can take his 30K and like it.

    Nobody in the UFC is making 1-5k. Base contracts are 12k + 12k to win.

    It's boxing. No company is making the matches for the fighter. Many boxers can fight cans all they want as long as they think it works for them.

    MMA fighters should go to boxing then. ;) Oh wait, the ones that are good enough probably chose boxing already.

    To be fair, Ward isn't a draw in Boxing and he's really just picking up momentum again, I'd say he's gotten paid much better over the course of his career.

    But you do have a bit of a point. Not every Boxer, everytime makes more than a UFC fighter.

    Because it's a tune up for the Kovalev fight in November, if you followed boxing you'd know that.

    Ufc pay fighters what they are worth. Plus, Ufc cards have twice as many fighters to pay which always get lost in the discussion.

    What bullshit argument?

    Do top level boxers make more than top level mma fighters? Yes.

    Do middle of the pack boxers generally make more than middle of the pack mma fighters? Yes.

    Do lower tier boxers generally make more than lower tier mma fighters? No.

    Discussion is about MMA fighters not UFC fighters.
