    How is the pay in other major fight promotions? I'm sure this is a common question, but since the consensus is that the ufc attracts the best talent, how much higher is the pay? Is the pay so much better that fighters forgo the majority of their sponserships? If most fighters get either 2.5k or 5k sponsership, does the ufc really pay that much more?

    Again I understand that this question is one that is commonly asked?

    Anyone who could have made a significant amount of money from sponsors outside the UFC will still make a significant amount of money from sponsors in the UFC.

    The UFC does not ban their athletes from having sponsors.
