don't forget DVD and Merchandise sales
Zuffa must be making a killing off dvd sales and merchandise too. I think the fighters should get a bigger slice of the pie. Boxers get paid outrageous amounts of money to fight, because they have good promoters, and there is inter-organisation fighting (ie WBA, IBC, WBF). Also look at basketball players and baseball players, and they don't even have to get punched in the face. It would be sweet to see the best fighters fight each other, instead of having to sign these measly contracts to fight only for one organization to pad the pockets of some fat guys in suits.
