They get paid more than you think. When I met Bones around the Vera fight, he was driving a NICE car. Between sponsors, other bonuses, etc, they are plenty taken care of.

Also, I'd be in favor of like 5-10K bonuses for finishing your opponent.

For someone who only gets 6,000 to show Eddie Yagin is a pretty exciting fighter to watch...

For a guy who gets "no respect" from fans, Rashad clearly gets respect from the UFC. $300K for a loss is a lot. I wonder if he had any win bonus possibilities.
You are joking right? the guy has been around since 05.Is the biggest success story from their flagship show, has been a champion & has beaten all contenders not named jones/machida yet hes just at 300k? yet others like forrest, ortiz & now jones make much more.To me hes getting shafted & why would his pay suddenly decrease "in a loss".His base salary win or lose is 300k

According to guys like George Roop if you promote the fight well you get paid an amount equal to your to-show money.

So if you are a newcomer win the fight and you promote it well, you get:

$6,000 (to-show) + $6,000 (to-win) + $6,000 (promoting bonus)

That's $18,000 which isn't bad.

1) While he may be successful he clearly does not draw the interest of the fans. Fans need to care about you, they either need to love you or hate you in order to want to buy a PPV with you on it. He does neither, most people don't really care. So for a guy who claims to get no respect to get $300K guaranteed that is a lot of respect.

2) You misread or misunderstood my "for a loss" comment. I meant that most fighters on UFC contract only see that type of money with a win and FoTN bonus. I was in no way indicating he deserves less for a loss.

3) I understand how a base salary works, my follow up question was if he had the possibility of a win bonus or if he was $300K flat like Jones was $400K flat. The thought of being able to walk out with the belt and $600K should have made his ass more active if that was the case.

I think they all make sense except for the fact that Griggs got paid more than Browne...

That one caught me off guard too. Even with his win bonus, Browne still made less than his opponent who I believe was fighting in the UFC for the first time....

I guess it proves what a good manager and camp can do for you. I had never seen him fight before, but maybe DW or Joe Silva had and were very impressed? Still I think a good manager helps you more in the contract discussion than prior wins.
