UFC 145 Payout

http://www.mmamania.com/2012/4/25/29...s-rashad-evans

Quote:
UFC 145 fighter payouts for those who competed at the "Jones vs. Evans" pay-per-view (PPV) event this past Saturday night (April 21, 2012) from the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, were released earlier today by the Georgia State Athletic and Entertainment Commission.

As expected, headlining fighters Jon Jones vs. Rashad Evans were the top earners of the night. "Bones" is now depositing $400,000 for taking home a unanimous decision victory over "Suga," who will be cashing his sweet check for $300,000 later this week.

Ben Rothwell had a "Big" payday for knocking out Brendan Schaub ($14,000) while Mac Danzig banked $56,000 by turning away Efrain Escudero. Mark Bocek was not far behind with $46,000, which he earned for getting rid of John Alessio ($10,000).

But that's not all.

Keep in mind the salaries listed above do not include fight bonuses, sponsorships, percentages and other unofficial payments such as PPV bonuses, among others. It also does not include deductions for expenses such as insurance, taxes, etc.

For example, the UFC often hands out extra cash for "Fight of the Night," "Knockout of the Night" and "Submission of the Night." To check out these figures for UFC 145 click here.

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.

I don't know but i'm sure his taking a nice little cut from the PPV bonus.

I want the manager of Ben Rothwell!

The UFC clearly thought he was a contender when they signed him.

Rashad is well taken care of, the guy's got a beautiful home as the Primetime show showed us, nice ride he's doing good for himself.

Jones is too, obviously.

But I really hope believe that's not what all of those guys made, is anyone really dumb enough to get into a cage and fight another man for just 8,000 dollars? I know I'd much rather get a regular job and avoid getting my brains bashed in.

Jones sure makes a lot of bank for a guy whose highest buyrate is 500,000. This one will probably be significantly higher, like 800,000.

You gotta start somewhere. I'd imagine Jones made the same when he first started. Plus you gotta think they get money under the table and from advertising.

Will make predictions for credits. Please, I'm so broke.

As mentioned, that is just disclosed cash. They get sponsorship money, DW pays them to do additional interviews, they usually get encouraged to do other stuff, such as twitter bonuses, etc. Several non-bitter ex-ufc fighters have said they were well taken care of.

$8K seems low, but I bet those guys were making $1K to fight $500 to win prior to the UFC.

Here's the thing. These guys love this sport and their getting paid to do what they love. I doubt there are UFC fighters who do this only for the money.

I'm well aware they love the sport and kudos to anyone who gets the chance to live out their dreams but my comment was more geared towards the people who believe the UFC doesn't pay their fighters enough. If this is what these guys actually made, I'd have a hard time believing the UFC would have as many fighters as it does, most of these guys have college degrees and could easily make more than 8,000 doing something a lot easier than cage fighting.

My unemployed friends with degrees would like to argue with you.

If I had started when I was younger I probably would try MMA for a living. Sitting behind a desk all day really makes me envy these guys who get to travel, train, and then actually test themselves by fighting rather than waiting for someone who sees me once a year to give me a review.
