    Yeah Nate's contract is a peach. He's one of the most underrated businessmen in the fight game. He has one fight left on the contract i hope he's not waiting 1.5 years again to get in there.

    Izzy and Marvin bout to buy alot of nice shit too

    Brad Riddell 4-0 in the UFC making 20k + 20k.

    Movsar Evloev 5-0 in the UFC making 18k + 18k lol holy fuck.

    Embarrassing sport. I thought intro contracts were typically 3 fights?

    Here we go again. Everyone knows Diaz is not fighting for 250k. No matter how many stars will tell you disclosed is not anywhere near how much they make people will still believe that is all they are making. I mean GSP just told you this within the last week. Jones said he got paid 5mil+ for a fight he had 500k disclosed. The UFC would rather take the PR hit for disclosed pay than reveal the actual pay so all this is on them.

    “MMA Junkie acquired the disclosed fighter salaries from the Arizona Department of Gaming, which oversaw the event, though win bonuses and discretionary bonuses were redacted from the public information request. The figures also do not include potential pay-per-view points.”

    Usually, they are just making up numbers but this is one of the rare occasions where we getting accurate information

    These numbers paint a fairly accurate portrait of base pay. However Diaz and Adesanya are most certainly making way more with PPV points and other revenue sharing in their deals.

    One more fight and Nate can leave to make much better money.

    How did Deiveison Figueirdo make almost as much as Nate? If just being a Champion earns you that much then no wonder we see fighters who just dive for the legs right from the start.

    3rd title defense, I'd expect him to make even more than that.

    You didn't read the article. Those are only the SHOW payments. Double those payments you see for those guys

    They may drop that contract price after his next fight depending if he wins or not and what mega fights they can still make with him. Going to be hard to negotiate more or equal if on a losing streak.
