With sponsors included, I think it's safe to say there is no UFC regular that gets payed under 40, even 50K a year. With people like Diego (70k a fight times 3 a year plus sponsors) making much more. Why so much complaining going around?

b/c most of them have to make enough to retire off of. This is their career, and their skill set. After they are done fighting if they haven't saved up any money they have to start a brand new career with no training, experience or skills. Now Tito just wants more money (and i don't blame him either, i think they all deserve to be paid millions if your a champ).

was surprised Eastman made so little. Sure he's washed up, but he's just a big a name as some of the other losers who made more.

It;s just like any other sporting event. The promoters and organization take in 1mil from advertising, gate, merchandise, and concessions after expenses. The fighters get 40%, everyone else gets rich. They could pay the fighters 100$ a piece, if good fighters still show up for that 100$, then thats what they'll get paid. Free Market FTW!
