The economics of UFC fight-night bonuses
Say you're a first-time UFC fighter. A stretch for most of us, I know, but bear with me.
Say you built up a nice record on regional MMA events, stayed motivated and hungry and constantly in shape, then you got the call. You're going to make your debut on the preliminary portion of a UFC pay-per-view. This is your big chance.

The UFC is His Home, but Leonard Garcia Looking to a Legacy FC Takeover After Changing Camps
Suffering through a five-fight losing streak, former WEC/UFC featherweight Leonard Garcia recognizes what he’s been doing wrong.
“I had a couple fights where I had been doing the same thing I’d done before and wasn’t moving forward with things I should have,” he said. “I was relying too much on landing the big punch.”
Not only does he feel like he was doing the wrong thing in fights, but also in training, thus Garcia has been working with a new team...
