Elite XC is not paying their fighters any better then the UFC. Most of those undercard fighters got 5k or less. You may only see one fighter on a UFC card getting pennys like that. Overall their pay is worst then what UFC pays, so i really hope people stop dissing the UFC and the way they pay their fighters.



You are right!!

The payout for Fight Night 14 was $713,000. Both shows were free and both shows had 11 fights. So the UFC paid an average of 32,400.00 per fighter and Elite paid $24,250.00.

That is 25% higher.

People are quick to criticise the UFC but the top level fighters get good money for what they do.
