Matt Mitrione fired his agent Malki on TV during UFC 119 after he made it clear $5k in sponsorship money was unacceptable for a main card slot.
Sponsorship money like any money you earn in this country--based on your ability to sell yourself to potential employers. Even in corporate america, salary for same job can vary substantially.
I know two guys at MIS at work, one makes 70k, the other makes 120k...they do the same exact job. How well can you negotiate? Make sure you find a good agent/manager.
