There are endless debates on here about fighter pay, and it usually is about those undercard fighters. I am on record as saying this is the group I care about the most as they are the ones that are most affected by the current pay structure. As a pro fighter and manager I feel that a beginner top organization fighter should not be broke to be a UFC fighter. And yes im only referring to the UFC because analytical evidence tells me that with their 4 billion dollar recent sale, they were probably vastly underpaying their fighters. I believe undercard UFC fighters should start at 16/16 as this would allow them to be full time fighters, which could benefit their futures, the companies bottom lines though investing in future talent, and fans as they would see a better product. I cant feel bad for midcard fighters making 35/35k or more per fight. Now the problem ive had with UFC pay defenders is they dont hold UFC accountable for the "where would the money come from", "UFC wont attract top talent" or "I dont even know that guy" arguments. The UFC benefited by increasing the number of fighters (mostly undercard), through more live events that padded their pockets; by giving them more live gates/fulfilling a fox contract which is going to lead to them making even more money on the next TV deal. This led to the UFC being able to justify paying debut guys 10/10k or 12/12k as most were brought in just to fill a FS1 or FS2 timeslot. This also spread money away from the guys who actually will have longetivity in the sport,who actually deserve more money at the beginning of their UFC Careers. It also led to viewers saying that these undercard guys didnt deserve more money as fans dont know who many of them are.' THIS IMO IS WHY THEIR NEEDS TO BE A UNION, AND FANS SHOULDNT NOW OR BEFORE LET ZUFFA OFF THE HOOK REGARDING FIGHTER PAY!
