    Actual reason:
    Dana White is a greedy pink goof

    Those payouts aren't bad if you consider the fact Bellator is 1/10th of the size of UFC. The fact they're even comparable is a massive indictment on the UFC's sheer greed.

    If only the company who already pays half to the fighters could make a dent in the UFC's popularity. You'd see a better state of affairs for all.

    It's because it's a sport for D level athletes, somewhere between WNBA and darts

    Here's the MMA GOAT who's 6'4'' trying to dunk

    UFC is going to keep pay low until they're forced to change by competition.

    there is 2 fighters on there only getting paid $4,000 nd $4,000 to win so who ever loses will only get $4,000. thats whack.
    UFC min is $8,000 even for newest fighters, and $8,000 to win.

    UFC has gone up since then. It’s 12k/12k and it’s constantly going up. I know Kay Hansen only has 2 fights in the company and she is at 17k/17k

    @SokoudjouFanboy shilling for Bellator paying dudes to get brain damage under 5k is pathetic and shows why Croker pays these clowns bring up sponsors but fail to mention these bums probably only get 500 at the most for each one. Ufc pays 3x better than the competition yet people wanna talk shit on Dana for being the only one to offer 50k Win bonuses and a minimum of 15k for each average fighter.

    Why doesn't any ever post what UFC fighters make from sponsors? Especially all the free shit they get.

    UFC fighters can still have sponsors and has sponsors.
    Just check their social media for proof.

    Secondly Myles Jury has a video out on youtube about sponsor pay in Bellator..
    Jules made from his main event vs Ben Henderson... 8k in sponsor money.

    I post the reddit link because the video is 9min long and the first post say how much he got from sponsors
