How many other fans think that is bull how much these fighters are maiking to lets say Brock Lesnar who just made his first debut and got paid the same as Rampage.They need to do something about it and im all for a fighters union.

It depends on how many asses u put in seats and how marketable u are to the fans. Big companies like the UFC have to make a profit so by paying a fighter alot of money like Ortiz they expect alot of PPV numbers and a large live gate. Lesner was either payed that much because of how many Americans recognise him from wrestling or that K1 do not know what they are doing.

i think that a guy like lesnar who people already know isnt going into mma to prove hes the best, he plans on making a living doing this for the time being, so he wont come in and fight for 3 grand because theres no need to build him up. when you already have a recognizable name it really helps get that fat paycheck without really doing anything except being you.

I said this before...

More money UFC pays their fighters= Less superstars in the UFC= Less good fights that we get to see
