    I realize that most pro athletes make way more than mma fighters, but if they have trouble living on a $20,000 paycheck that they get three times a year then I have zero sympathy for them.

    Wow, I haven't missed the ignorance in the fighter pay threads.

    The most entry level fighters are making $8,000/$8,000 (plus sponsors, etc). You'll forgive me, I remember arguing with people who were bitching when it was $2,000/$2,000.

    The top guys with ME or Co-ME billing are getting a PPV% and salary that dwarfs their published purses (which are disclosed in some states because of archaic laws).

    Subtract taxes and travel/training expenses and that $20,000 turns into about $5K pretty quick.

    JDS got the star treatment it appears from the UFC after he won the belt or after he beat Mir. The GSP's get that base of 400 grand so you can bet on a PPV bonus being on top of that.. Sucks he lost LOL..

    The UFC pay for all travel expenses. Training is normally around 10% of the purse. There not starving.

    I would agree with you if they got to keep all that. Bro u have to think about PAYING EVERYONE that helped you get ready for the fight!!!! Training isn't free, it's actually really fucking expensive.

    The one's who deserve one do. The one's who don't, or who's contracts haven't come up yet don't.

    All these contracts are freely and fairly negotiated. I don't really feel bad for anyone who operates in a free market for their labor and enters into a mutually agreeable contract for services.

    I really don't feel bad for anyone who gets paid hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars a year to compete in a sport, or entry level athletes who sign up to do it for less in the hopes of moving up the ladder and earning themselves a big contract.
