    how do you even pay coaches and trainers? He is fighting one of the top guys in the world, supposed to be the co-main event, and he gets 16k? You get what you sign for, but it just seems low to me.

    Get ready for the Zuffa zombies to convince you how awesome the top UFC fighters get paid.

    No sympathy for the guy because of the Ricci fight and the Sanchez comments but yeah I do agree that if you co - headline you deserve a better cut. Lets face it though, after that performance I doubt he co - headlines again for a while.

    Doesn't deserve any more than that for his performance on Saturday.

    Well, I really hope that those numbers are indeed bullshit, because some of those salaries are absolutely abysmal.

    Overpaid. Guy didn't sell a single PPV and he bored the ones who bought it due to Jones-Cormier to tears.

    It was the co-main event.

    It's called a contract. Sometimes guys over perform it, other times they severely under perform it.

    How do you guys call yourself hardcore fans and not understand these simple concepts?

    Zuffa zombie response "surely you're not dumb enough to think that's all he made. Dana secretly gives out giant bags of cash so the irs can't tax the fighters"

    So that's why they raised the price and didn't tell their fans. Good stuff.

    I'm sure the fighters have to tell the IRS, they just don't have to tell the NSAC. We know these bonuses exist because of Randy Couture's court case. Although, I'm not sure how much Jury would be eligible for these kinds of bonuses.
