You're right. The UFC not only pay them a hell of a lot more than they disclose (unless the fight really sucked), you then have to add sponsorships to that, which, for a reasonably good fighter with a good manager, should be a real solid boost to the funds. If you look at the Forbes top earners in sport list, it's very rarely a sportsmans 'salary' that makes up the bulk of their earnings, unless you're Floyd Mayweather or Manny Pacquiao.
