    The guy trains at his local gym in his country.Doesn't bring in anyone.

    Makes at :
    UFC 155 :400 000

    UFC 160 :240 000

    UFC 166:130 000

    UFC Fight night : 260 000

    without even counting the extra bonuses and the money he makes being the "Rogan" in brazil in UFC events and complains about his salary saying he barely has money to buy food?

    WTF??

    Source thx to Grinding Anarchy:http://sports.yahoo.com/news/the-on...junior-dos-santos-really-fears-201150807.html

    "It's been very, very tough [without a paycheck]," dos Santos said. "Thank God I have very good sponsors by my side because if I didn't have those sponsors, I don't know what I would do to live.

    Maybe I'd have had to sell my own house to pay my bills and buy my food. It's so tough to do."


    He didn't really complain about the salary,but said he's basically poor with what he gets from the UFC.

    That's not much money. It's not like he fights every month.

    That's only a little over 1million in the last 2ish years. After tax and expenses that's only like 200k or something. But for real its like nick saying he's broke immediately after the GSP fight where he easily made over a million.

    He hadn't fought in over a year, needed to pay for his gym, surgery, medicals before Stipe, and had money taken away from his paycheck before he made it to Brazil.

    His disclosed pay was $260,000. He lost 30% of that to the IRS.

    I'm conflicted. I don't think the fighters should be rich or the owners

    This is also true. Still I'm wondering if I missed an interview somewhere.

    Source for him complaining about money, please. I never read that.
    He was poor before getting in the UFC. You might be confusing things.

    Also, he does bring people for his training camp. There is a russian he brings for wrestling training. I don't remember his name.

    How many years do you think it takes an avg person to earn a million dollars...

    Everybody pays taxes, you dummy. GTFO with that BS.

    Sure JDS is being taken care of just fine...don't think he has to worry about money unless he's blowing his paychecks on hookers, coke, and rehab.

    Dos Santos said he has been able to survive because of sponsors who pay him monthly.

    He made more than a million in 2 years.He makes other stuff and goes in a lot of shows in brazil where he gets money only for being there.

    I get it when you make 6 k two times a year that you have trouble living with it.

    But in JDS's case i don't get it.
