    all i read if the ufc is wrong for not paying living wages.

    so who can live off 2k.

    i know i know you all say there local fighters so nobody gives a shit out them but the ufc prelim fighters make more than 2k an the outrage is how the ufc doesnt make more fighters conor type money.

    so ufc is evil for there min pay but scott coker is a saint for there low pay

    Guess what, when you make more money as a company, like the UFC does, they can afford to pay their fighters better

    What percentage of revenue does Bellator pay it's fighters? That's the real number to look at.

    These fighters are often on one-off fight deals and the level of a Bellator prelim is discernibly regional.

    Often Bellator just put local up-and-comers on, and let me tell you something, they wouldn't make that money taking those kinds of fights in any other organisation. UFC doesn't bother with that level, and nobody who specialises in building fighters from scratch pays 1-1 guys $2,000 anywhere in the world.

    Just ignore this thread, this guy makes the same thread every Bellator card and it's been explained to him about a hundred times and he just carries on asking the same question.

    Socrates lost the fight, but he's spitting logic rhymes on y'all.

    How many apprentices you know get the living wage?

    What's more important is that they're able to earn the living wage when they're fully fledged professionals with saleable résumés.
