If not more on the British circuit? Is there money in that market that I don't know about? This is the first time I've heard of this.

Of course there's money in it, you think Paul Daley fights for 500 dollars now that hes not in the UFC? I know BAMMA has paid around 30k for main event fighters.

A bit better than 4 and 4 or 8 and 8 as well as being against a much easier opponent at that.

Fighters can make a lot of money on the indies, one of the things about Kimbo Slice was that he could have fought freak show fights and brought in millions but he chose to come to the UFC.

I know Marquadt is on £160,000 when you think about it BAMMA only get a quater less in ticket sales then the UFC because the UFC always bring half-assed fights over here.

Where as BAMMA always puts their good fighters in their shows because they can't afford to put on half assed shows. Anyways that's a good amount of money to be making. The overseas MMA markets are clearly growing and the UFC isn't the only way to make money.
