I realise the fighters get undisclosed payments, such as sponsors, etc, but what are you basing that figure on Ben ?

I know a couple of fighters and promoters in the UKMMA scene, it makes financial sense to give fighters money 'under the table'.

Chael should've gotten the belt anyways.

The WEC needs a raise.

I wonder what some fighters ACTUALLY take home. After the sponsorships and cornermen are paid. What does a fighter actually get to go "shopping with" is what I wonder!
