Couture did not get sub of the night. The dude makes ridiculously more than anyone else on the card anyway. May as well give the bonus to someone like Thiago who could use it.

Nowhere in this statement did I say Randy won sub of the night....I said he should have won it because it was his first submission in 5 years, which was vs Mike Van Arsdale.

Matt Serra didn't make $285,000.. he made $210,000.

Regarding Marquardt, he would have made a lot more if he would have won.

Salaries seem about right to me. They sure make a hell of a lot more than people do in Strikeforce.

I'd say Thiago's submission was way more deserving than Couture's was. Plus, as Alpha said, Couture doesn't need the money.

I can see how it was misconstrued, but don't be a ********* and insult my intelligence, boy. When I said "he did not get it" I meant he did not get the best submission of the night, therefore he didn't deserve it. You're supposed to reward a guy for not submitting someone in 5 years? Give me a break.

 

Thiago had a better sub.

I would have been disappointed if Randy got sub of the night. Not that it wasn't a great sub, but Paulo's submission was too perfect. I am in agreement with Alpha_Omega here, Randy is getting paid more than enough. It's nice for the newer guys who aren't making the big bucks to get the bonuses when they put on a good show.

well, all these guys signed contracts for the amounts they get paid, so...ya, I think it is right. I don't hear the fighters complaining about the pay they get. This comes up alot, that the pay sucks, but UFC pays more than the next biggest promotion and nobody in SF complains either. If they want more money, win convincingly and renegotiate the contract.

Not sure if anyone said it already' date=' didn't have the patience to read everything, but the win bonuses are already included in the original amount shown, since you are too dumb to figure that out yourself.[/quote']

 

For the cheap seats for the rest of the retards....the pay rate did NOT include fight of night bonuses!!!! They get paid Fighter bonuses(which are completely different than Fight/Sub/Ko of the night bonuses) payrate, plus fight/sub/ko of night bonuses.

 

If you didnt have time to read the article, then why are you giving us your halfa**** opinion on it??

Well after your " Sonnen doesnt even belong in the ring with nate" thread. i cant really agree with you.

What's missing here is what they were paid outside of their contract, as reported by the Nevada State Athletic Commision. Some of the fighters also make percentage payments of the overall Pay Per View buys, which usually comes one or two months later after it is all calculated. Don't think that the headliners only made what they did, they would have also taken home a cut of the profits from all the PPV. This is what Dana is always eluding to when people are speaking about how so many of his fighters are multi-millionaires. Furthermore, this doesn't even account for the endorsement deals these fighters made for displaying their logos on their shorts and banners.

These salaries suck' date=' and at this rate we will always have mediocre level fighters.

 

Lots of athletes pick sports depending on salary and opportunities.. Why the **** would you fight if you can make ten times the money playing football?[/quote']

 

 

really they dont pick sports they have a passion 4 or r better at cos of the money

 

so athletes who run say in the 100m do it 4 the money not that there good and might win gold

This is what I don't understand. The loser gets paid more than the winner (including the winner's win bonus!).

 

Stann was A) coming off 2 wins

B) Comes out Greg Jackson's camp

C) Was the WEC LHW champ

 

All that makes for a much better paying contract than a guy like Davis in his first UFC fight and only his 4th pro fight.

 

The only payment that really stuck me as odd was Matt Danzig but being a TUF winner I guess its all part of the "6 figure contract". I have a feeling as soon as that contract is done he will be back to making 5-10K a fight if he sticks with the UFC.

Because maybe your better at slipping your arms around a guys neck and stopping blood from going to his head. Just because your a good athlete doesn't mean your good at every sport, just ask Michael Jordan.

Michael Jordan also practiced and played basketball a lot more than he swung a bat.

 

A good athlete will be a beast at every sport, until specializing.

does it not mean that serra made 150k including a 75k win bonus, plus 60k award = 210k not 285k?

 

and i totally disagree with couture and sub of night that would have pissed me off, thiago was a lot more deserving and i am glad he got it, and add that to the fact that couture got 250k anyway...

He was also more naturally gifted for basketball. An athlete is in a sport because more then likely it is the sport he does best. Just because your good at one sport does not mean you can go dominate at another. Can you pick up that sport and do better then a regular person? more then likely yes. Can you change sports and be as you put it a "beast" in it with the other pro's who actually play that sport? more then likely not.

Therre are a number of ways to look at it.

 

You could doan accoutning of how much the event took in - ususally impossible because the UFC is pretty closed mouthed about PPVs - and try to work out the fighters purses as a percentage of the gate.

 

On the other hand you could ask yourself where any of these people are going to get paid that kind of money.

 

Do you honestly think RAndy Couture could make $250K a night anywhere else?

 

I don;t.

Serra was way overpaid.

 

So was Coleman for what he ended up doing for it but guess he was headlining (LOL) and it was a golden handshake...

 

Others seem about right...

 

+1

How did Serra get such a lucrative deal when he won the Ultimate Fighter? He has only fought 3 times since.

can anyone here actually do simple addition 150 plus 75 is 225...serra made 225 000' date=' jesus christ people.[/quote']

 

serra either made 210k or 285k depending on whether or not the 75k win bonus was already included in his 150k pay out, which it usually is, so he got 150k to fight, then was awarded 60k for ko of the night, 150k + 60k = 210k , if the 75k win bonus wasn't already included which is what some people are saying then 210k + 75k = 285k.

You ready to stick your foot in your mouth, Mr. Educated one?

Here goes..

 

Matt Serra was paid $75,000 to show, then another $75,000 to win. This totals $150,000. On top of that $150,000, he was paid a $60,000 bonus for knockout of the night.

$150,000 + $60,000 = $210,000

 

Now, go back to school and learn how to read, you useless turd.

Tim Hague: $7,000

 

This guy made the least cash but I would have to say unless you only fight for money that was a good one day pay check. I have a regular job but I would certainly train in my spare time to make 7G for one day. Its not as high as boxing but I think the salaries of fighters are fine. A bit lopsided for some but okay, not great.

Except he worked a lot longer than 1 day for the money and he would have associated expenses to make that 7k which probably total 7k or more I would imagine.

These salaries suck' date=' and at this rate we will always have mediocre level fighters.

 

Lots of athletes pick sports depending on salary and opportunities.. Why the **** would you fight if you can make ten times the money playing football?[/quote']

 

So who are the great fighters who are not fighting for the ufc because of the pay?

 

Which football players would be one of these great fighters but won't fight because they are making more playing football?

I would say the UFC has the majority of talent. But there are a people fighting else where because of what the contract the ufc offers dictates. But usually the quality of fights are good. Sometimes it doesnt make sense but we eventually see the fights we want. Whether it lined up or 10 years after it should have happened. Either way the match ups usually are fun to see. But nothings perfect. it will have better system someday.

Patrick Willis, Jared Allen, just 2 i believe could make an impact if they focused on MMA like they do on football.

Perhaps. But 2 football players who MIGHT could be great fighters if the money motivated them to give it a try hardly seems like a strong argument for ufc or anyone to up the pay scales does it?
