    So with the passing of time, we have come to find out that fighters in the ufc today are not making that much money since according to Mike Swick and Joe Riggs that the days of sponsorship is done and Dana is not paying them well it seems.

    So what other jobs do ufc fighters gravitate towards when they are not fighting or when they are injured?

    I would like to see more retired fighters or fighters at the end of their careers take jobs as a referee or judge.

    Doubt any UFC fighters have full time jobs, unless it is their choice to work.

    I remember Carwin being a full time engineer and a full time MMA fighter...:D

    The only one I'm sure of is Neil Seery who posted this after his UFC debut vs Brad Pickett.
    He works in a warehouse full time, I honestly don't know how he does it!

    I remember Demetrious Johnson talking about having a job in a warehouse up until he actually won the title and could afford to support himself.

    I heard Herb Dean gets like $1500 per night. I mean, it's decent, but not enough to solely be a job.
