    Stipe is so under appreciated. /sarcasm

    You left Jon Jones off the list.

    Andrei Arlovski gets paid 250,000 each time he fights just to show.

    Overeem's current contract pays him $800K to show so you can throw him in the top group.

    Every male champ is making over $500K/year if they fight at least twice in the year. And tons of fighters are in that lower group, if you're talking annual earnings.

    TJ made 350k in his last fight, but he was only making around 100k a during his early title reign, before he won it back.

    They get a percentage of PPV sales as well if they're headlining the card. TJ likely made over $500K total in his last fight.

    There's a lot of guy making a $100K a year. I looked at this once a while back. You guy got guys that have been around like Swanson, Jim Miller, Elkins, Stephens, Pettis, making over 60k a fight base, if they win thats double so they'll make over a 100K a fight. Pretty much anyone in the top 10 makes 40K base minimum to show. At the least 100-150 fighters make over a 100K a year.

    If you are seriously telling me that Killashaw, Bobby Knuckles and Woodley only make 250 k a year then why do they even bother?

    Reported salaries aren't the real ones, a 10k/10k fighter is actually making way more.
