    And fighters at the Mecca of mma are making 12 g's.... seems far

    And with that 12 grand comes(Potentially)
    -massive head traumas and risk of being cut at any given moment if ufc sees fit

    No need for a fighters Union, were good here :rolleyes:

    Just my opinion, I'm sure it'll be dosed with flammable liquid on the very first post
    Carrying on

    Do you think it would be valued at 4 billion if they paid every fighter 10 million a fight?

    If they don't like the pay, go do something else.

    Maybe a college education but even that isn't worth as much as it used to be...

    Exactly. either fight for 12K, get better and fight for more money, or do something else

    Boxing has the same small pay out even for big cards where the main event makes millions.

    Why don't you look up what all the expenses are before making judgement.

    Good luck making money back on that investment. So much for fighter pay improving after this purchase.

    you know that they're not tricked into fighting, right? or what they're paid for that matter. Grown humans are responsible for themselves. Maybe a union is in order but if they can't all get together and decide that as one then they can continue to get paid 12 thousand a fight. Without tricks.

    Do not understand why fans are so opposed to fair fighter pay. Makes zero sense.
