Can't Go with "reported Bonuses". cause #### aint Official .. even Jones was Complaining about pay recently.
Your words are correct but your logic is backwards... Having more f!ghters and more f!ghts will equal less money to spread around... Hence why basketball and baseball players make considerably more than NFL players... 1500+ players and 300+ coaches and staff members in the NFL to be paid... Even though the NFL generates way more money they pay less because of the number of people to be paid... As opposed to the NBA and MLB who combined have like 900 players...

The longer UFC is around the higher the salaries will go up... Every sport in it's infancy stages have what we consider low salaries for celebrities... In the 80's NBA players didn't have $100 million contracts and the NBA had been around for about 40 years by then... It wasn't until the mid 90's did the contracts begin shooting up... Jordan made less than $30 million his first 10 years in the league... Then in one year made $30 million

It just takes one person to reach the level before it becomes the norm as everyone will use that one salary to justify higher pay... So this is no different than any other sport... Give it time and eventually it will reach that plateau if it continues the success... 10 years ago in the UFC you didn't have any f!ghters making anywhere close to a million dollars for a f!ght...

Seems like all the morons are taking the opposite side.....yes clown, that's why brock went back to wrestling because he didn't get paid enough....hahaha ..but then again reading your attempt to formulate a sentence pretty much explains everything.

The NBA has a soft cap, so your statement is partially true.


UFC f!ghters won't see a significant increase in pay until they form a union. And yes, they are gettingr###d.

How many of those f!ghters you guys decided to "f!ght for" by posting online actually bring people to the f!ghts? How many of those f!ghters actually sell PPV cards and bring traffic and social media to the f!ghts?..

Prob like 3-5. So how would the model work if you would pay all those f!ghters that don't really contribute to a card but are just there as the WWE wrestling "mid-carders"...guys that fill a card but don't really 'sell'..

it's easy to post #### on a forum acting like you are standing up for someone but in reality you do not have the financials of the UFC and do not know how much they spend on setup/production costs/overhead costs/travel/media/EVERYTHING!....There does need to be a profit and they are now sometimes having 3 cards a month, everyone of those f!ghters needs to be paid.

So, just give it up already...we get it you are all very nice people and f!ght for the 'worker' over the employee...very noble of all of you...thanks

YOU NEW JACKS? I forgot more than you learned about the f!ght game

I'm not going to act like I know what these f!ghters make, but I don't see em complaining like most of y'all. There's more than a$suming truth, there's something there to Obivously keep em going and it's not 5 k a f!ght
