    Lol. You are the guy who is always complaining about fighter pay and how low it is. Why the hate for Melvin? Is he not a fighter?

    Eh, maybe I should have been more clear. My issue isn't how much he made compared to how it stacks up against other fighters. He doubled Varner including the win bonus and made more than Boetsch, Belcher and Lauzon.

    Yeah. He is on his 5th UFC contract probably. I'm surprised he isn't getting 50K a fight minimum.

    Varner is on his first contract since fighting in the XFC and XFO. That's why he isn't making much. He probably has one more fight on his current deal, if he wins that/is exciting, I'm sure he gets 40/40+ a fight.

    No one you named has been in the UFC as long as he has or had as many fights. Varner just got into the UFC and was 1-1, what do you expect?

    Melvin is a fighter people pay to watch.

    Two last fight he lost, but both were close fights.
    He almost finished Cerrone and then SD.

    He has been with the UFC for a long time, the majority of his fights (win or lose) have been very exciting. I was surprised he only made $40k, to be honest.

    I will try to type this slowly, for the Brainiacs in here:

    That

    is

    what

    was

    in

    the

    contract

    he

    signed.

    Obviously

    both

    he

    and

    Zuffa

    feel

    that

    is

    what

    he's

    worth.

    I agree.
    40K for a guy who's been in the UFC since 6-7 years , and it is an exciting fighter , without sponsors these guys cant covers their expenses.

    He should get minimum double.

    I could never think 42k is to much for someone that has so many fights that people have seen in the UFC.
