Seems pretty accurate as far as I could guesstimate.

However, one of the biggest things is each fighter is not paid the same for the PPV. They each negociate their own individual rate for their PPV earning. Lesnar may be $1 for each PPV sold, whereas someone like Jim Miller might get $.15 for each PPV sold, or even less depending on how good of a deal he got. Any fighter'd still pull big bucks (.15 x 60,000 buys = $9000) which combined with his base pay, and sponsorship makes him a very comfortable man.
