Need Info for student
I am a teacher at a High School in Bastrop, Texas. I am working on a personal finance project and my students are supposed to choose a carreer and answer some questions about it. One of my students choose UFC and I am having trouble finding information about this carreer choice. I would appreciate any help. I would really like a website that good give me some answers, but will settle for some general answers from your experiences.
1. What kind of training or schooling is needed to be successfull as a UFC fighter?
2. What is the median income for a UFC fighter? I know that this question varies a great deal, I'm looking for a decent estimation of a median income for someone that has talent and puts a respectible amount of time and energy into training.
I greatly appreciate your assistance and apolgize if I have disrupted your discussions.
It is difficult to give an exact figure, but I would say that to be getting paid enough to live on, from scratch, you would need 3 years of full time dedicated training, which depending on the gym/dojo/whatever would cost between $100/month - $400/month in tuition.
So a Median (Not mean) income for a successful MMA fighter, which would include teaching/coaching part time, I would say would be around $24,000-$30,000.
This is honestly just an educated guess, as there are many variables. From my experience in Melbourne Australia, there are very very few full-time fighters whose sole income is derived from fighting (and teaching) alone.
One thing you might want to consider is that it is a rapidly expanding market and these figures will likely be more favourable to the fighters after a few years, and at the same time become more competitive.
