    Bellator will always be second best despite how many anti UFC sherdoggers cry about it

    Assumed Daley would be at least twice that pay to show.

    We all kind of thought the pay wasnt quite as rosy as some would like us to believe, but bashing the UFC is so easy its become the norm.

    Those guts also aren't tied to a single sponsor that pays them pennies on the dollar. Not to mention the "big leagues", i.e. UFC, should pay significantly more, if that's what they market themselves as.

    But the sponsors are giving all those fighters 20-30k a fight more than Reebok?

    Looks almost like a UFC payscale, except these fighters are allowed real sponsorship money

    Unless you are getting legit good sponsors which most bellator are not then the pay difference is still huge.

    Many of those fighters aren't top promotion ready so it makes sense they make a lot less.
    We will see what fighters think of their offers in the future by who they sign with, UFC or Bellator.

    Oh and...
    How much is it worth to work for someone other than Dana? One needs to be paid more if they are dealing with a difficult boss.
