    I know that mma contracts are obscure and highly variant--some fighters get paid peanuts while big names get ppv points (if the numbers exceed a predetermined buy rate), tack on performance bonuses and backroom bones, and reebok "charity:rolleyes:"-- but what about the gate? Does that all go to the company/promoters?

    In a stadium fight points on the gate could significant bank.

    just curious. speculation always welcome :)

    They get a sliver if it's a wooden gate, and one piece of chainlink if it's metal. But seriously, it seems that in some new markets that have never had a UFC show, the arenas sell out even before a main card is announced - in this case, it's the brand that's putting asses in seats, not the individual fighters. On the other hand, Rampage should probably get a cut of the gate, since they scrambled hard to get him on that PPV last-minute, as he puts asses in seats consistently.
