    wtf? he was undefeated, one of the biggest UFC stars, and just fought in one of the most hyped and biggest main events ever and he only got paid 90k? that's pathetic. Aftet taxes and training costs he would barely get 30k in the hand.

    You agree on a contract, when that contract ends you get a better one based on performance. If you wanna go the Diaz route you might get more but also sidelined for a year.

    So yeah, 90k

    Cormier earned millions on that fight. Believe you me.

    Agreed TS, although expect to get flamed by the myriad of Zuffa Zombies here who think that UFC fighters are awesomely paid, or that they should have gone to college and gotten their masters degree if they wanted to earn a real living. lmao

    He's also a UFC broadcaster for Fox. I doubt he's short on cash.

    I sincerely hope he was paid more than his disclosed purse. If not I honestly dunno how ppl ever expect to make it in MMA unless u fight 5 times a year. That shoulda been at least a mil in the bank for Cormier and three times what he got for Jones


    Like not everyone can be champ. Lots of guys only get 1-2 really big fights. Hell most don't get any. So They ought to get paid for them. But noooooo they signed a contract and we want you to take this gigantic fight before we discuss a possible raise. It's rubbish. 90K to challenge for the number 1 belt in the number 1 MMA Org is just pathetic. Some Truck drivers earn more. No knock on truck drivers at all btw I'm just saying like god. Cormier shoulda been a truck driver $$$ wise. All MMA fighters Cept the champs could earn more money driving a trailer full of gasoline or luxury cars. Back up tackles make what Cormier did in a tenth of a football season.

    I don't tend to concern myself with the "plight" of people who make more than I do.

    Not at all, but we'll flame the shit outta you if you don't understand a basic concept like a contract.
