I don't know it for fact, but I believe it's very possible they make a LOT more than UFC fighters. Pride draws much larger live crowds, and sells out huge arenas in Japan, but I think the top Pride fighters make some real bank not just from the purse, but also from endorsement deals etc., over there. UFC has some sponsors as well, but it's not popular enough yet here in the States to match Pride's marketability over in Japan.
