70K for big foot with no win bonus is solid I didnt think he would be getting that much to be honest

I thought Browne would get paid more as well. I can't help but feel bad for the fellas who are getting paid garbage.

Agree 100%

Especially if they only fight once a year

know what? the money is slowly coming up for all UFC fighters.

the guys aren't getting rich off this but it's better than 3-4 years ago. and it's not like these FX/FUEL shows are getting millions of viewers or huge ticket sales......modest salaries for a modest UFC event.

Whenever I see some of the fight night type event card salaries, and think about training costs and everything else that goes into it, it really looks pitiful.

Hopefully the undisclosed finances take good care of these guys.
