Additionally, the figures do not include money paid by sponsors, which can oftentimes be a substantial portion of a fighter's income. They also do not include any other "locker room" or special discretionary bonuses the UFC oftentimes pays. They also do not include portions of the pay-per-view revenue that some top-level fighters receive.

I was thinking that, but I would be willing to bet he is going to get a ppv cut. I think the payroll looks pretty good overall at least in the sense that no one made less Than $10,000.

Big Country only 40,000 to fight and bonus?! that is cheap as heck, and nearly half that money gets taxed anyway, and im just glad that the UFC has medical inhsurance, but I wouldn't doubt if the fighters still pay medical related bills.

I do.




and furthermore talent and status mean nothing in considering UFC salary. its the ppv drawing power that is making these salaries. And the UFC makes it s living by having unknowns put on the exciting fights, and paying everybody squat. If they could get the public to see Shaq sell 1million plus ppv's in a big foot silva fight for example, in a mid-card-lineup or co main event, there is no way Shaq would get paid 20,000 to show, even though Big cOUNTRY COULD BEAT SHAQS ASS 9 OUT OF 10 TIMES. Thats my rant, sry caps, p.s. Just Kidding

With PPV cut and 'discretionary bonus' JDS and Mir will both collect low seven figures.

Marxism...only explanation.
edit: Also, to address the cheap as heck, he came into this fight 1 for 4 recently, seems like a reasonable pay out to me.

isnt he still on his TUF contract?

edit: MMAcca answered it for me

how many fights are on a TUF winner's contract? It appears to be 7 if Brandao gets $15,000 to show

9 i think.

3 year contract with an average of 3 fights per year. Or at least they used to be.
