    This homie don't know how Pay Per View works. Cut that PPV in half, that goes to the PPV provider. A percentage goes to Jones most likely, plus all the back door bonuses.

    We literally have no idea what they make, won't until they are released. So why make shit up?

    UFC fighters only get like 15% of the cut. We already know this.

    Oh look it's our daily thread of somebody pretending to know the PPV business works and how it relates to the UFC's financials.

    In case you want to talk about fighters not getting paid enough compared to what the organization is making, then revenue does not mean much. In that case you would want to find the expenses too and then look at the profit.

    More like 24 million revenues - operation and labor cost = Between 19-22 million is my guess.

    Has anyone taken into consideration the fighter/coach hotel costs, travel costs, promotions, advertising, paying the actual crew that does all the work in getting everything set up for the event(s), etc?

    I'd guess if they're lucky, they made $5-10 million when all is said and done.

    Half the PPV revenue goes to cable companies, and Jones gets a cut of the PPV. Cormier likely even saw quite a bit of extra cash for the job he did promoting the fight as well. So your 3% numbers are off by a lot.

    But it is absurd still, just look at what boxers who sell 750K PPVs or even a lot less get compared to Jones and Cormier. It's a monumental difference.
