if those numbers are correct that is absoloutly scandelous. $5000 the lowest paid dude got. if he fights 3 fights a year (which most fighters don't) that would work out roughly ?10,000 (the curency here) which is less than minimum wage. you could make more working at mcdonnalds.

 

these guys train like 6 days a week to fight and risk injury. and they are making nothing at all. training well costs money, eating rite to be in the best shape to make for good fights costs money. i don't know how that guy is managing to pay his rent.

 

$20,000 should be the minimum for a fight.

most of those guys have other jobs and if they win they usually make more then 10,000 which isn't bad if your just coming up and are still young which most of these undercard guys are.

Like him or not Bisping is a rockstar, and probably has a very good agent!

 

The guys who appear to earn a lot less most likely have other jobs, and by taking low wages in their early fights they are showing the UFC how much they want to fight for the promotion.

 

These wages are not the whole story anyway...how many cars and other perks do the UFC purchase for their fighters? How many sponsorship doors open up just for fighting in the UFC? How much easier is it to get signed by another promotion after fighting in the UFC?

Rashad's win bonus was more than all the losers from the co main event down the card combined by 40 thousand dollars...and thats on top of his 435k just for stepping into the octagon.

 

the 435k includes the win bonus....Evans and Rampage both made 250k for showing up...the winner got the 185k bonus...all the win bonuses are included in the dollar totals on the left...

Getting paid 5K to fight at the biggest MMA org. in the world is a scandal.

And there's no PPV money coz his fight is most likely not aired.

 

It has nothing to do if what Rashad gets is low or high, is about a guy getting paid 5k to risk his health on the biggest MMA org. Tax deduction, camp, etc... SHAME!

 

Stop saying you must make a name for yourself before... coz that's is supporting the UFC in exploring fighters.

 

I aprove of the post here that says that minimum purse should be 20K!

 

If you care about MMA you care about the fighters (and not about the UFC)!

I think we all knew fight salaries in the UFC were bad, but damn, the undercard fighters are getting bent over and then some.

 

Fair enough, paying your dues and all that, but that's what a lot of the more independant promotions are for. Receiving $5000 for a fight is beyond ridiculous considering the risks the fighters take. People are quick to throw the toys out of the pram when it comes to not paying doctors, nurses, firefighters and police officers enough, but when we consider in the UFC, we are watching fighters potentially cause permanent harm to one another - for our entertainment and pleasure, and to only receive $5000, then that is criminal.

 

I'm all for doing what you love in life, and pushing the pay cheque on the back burner as long as you love your job. But when such healthy and safety risks come into account, then the pay situation differs massively.

You think if someone is fighting in the UFC then they have paid their dues somewhat. Each fighter should at least be able to make a basic living per fight (say 25 000) and have plane tickets, accomodation, transport etc for the event covered (which they might already do anyway). In lesser promotions I can understand fighters get paid less but this is the UFC
