    Funny how heavyweights are always so overpaid.

    You forgot to add about 100-200k in locker room bonuses for each fighter. :D

    There's a high demand for and relatively low supply of large athletes.

    Not a Guida fan but I'm surprised Rothwell and Vera get more show money than he does. I'm sure Anthony Pettis will be getting a huge raise soon.

    LMAO WHAT A JOKE! UFC fighters get paid NOTHING. LW WORLD CHAMPION GETTING 27K PER FIGHT!


    UFC IS BIGGER THAN SOCCER. [​IMG]




    UFC IS SWALLOWING BOXING! [​IMG]



    UFC FIGHTERS GET PAID NOTHING. DANA WHITE IS A LIAR. JOE ROGAN IS AN IDIOT.

    The only thing worse than UFC fighter pay is the geeks on Sherdog who condone it. Rampage said it best when the UFC wants to lowball fighters they keep PPV sales private and tell the fighters they didnt sell enough PPVs. When the UFC wants to pretend theyre swallowing boxing they claim to sell a million PPVs. I doubt the UFC has sold more than 100k PPVs in the last 2 years. Paying fighters peanuts and a Ford F-150 pick up truck as backroom bonus is usually enough these days. LMAO. What a joke.

    This guy thinks Pettis was the LW champ going into the fight. What an idiot.

    Showtime should get paid more for sure. I mean...the famous showtime kick. I hope he gets paid 200,000 each fight. He deserves it. He is exciting win or lose. That is who should get paid more.

    PPV % more than likely.


    Also, does Rothwell lose his win bonus since he tested positive? I know the win wasn't overturned, but I thought the UFC still didn't award win bonuses when a fighter fails a drug test....I'm curious if they can withhold a bonus when a fighter's win isn't overturned.

    Lol I'll never understand fighter pay. You get what you can negotiate. Get mad at agents, not at the ufc.
