haha yes, back to the original point. He has to take that pay cut (albeit a brief one if he can perform and surely he believes he can) to be considered a top guy at 185.

The problem here is that he is fighting in his home country, he has a lot of fans there, his sponsors are mainly based there. Nobody knows who he is in the USA.

I don't think he's ever claimed to be the best MW in the world.

Also, it's not like his paycut is guaranteed to be all that brief. I mean Shane Carwin was in his second contract and was headlining a PPV for a World Heavyweight title fight and was making like 70K.


Khalidov probably makes around that or more in KSW, especially with sponsors...not to mention the EURO is worth quite a bit more than the dollar right now.

I highly doubt 70k was all Shane received though. I think he'd have seen atleast 500k after PPV buys.

I've never heard anything about non-champions getting PPV revenue unless it was explicitly written in their contract for the purpose of a super fight a la Nick Diaz, a la Alistair Overeem...and AFAIK those were only one time deals.

Apparently a few months ago he was offered 30k per fight, beating grove would bump that up to about 36k imo based on his UFC history and they would take notice, I have no idea what he makes in KSW but if he lands his leg locks in the UFC he's taking away another 60k on top of the show up fee and the win bonus is double so he could end up with 70k to show up and win, and a leg lock may be good enough for another 60k looking at 130k and always increasing. Plus I think they would give him the lombard treatment and put him in big fights straight away and get him to title contention quickly. The thing with Mamed is he hasn't indicated he wants to go to the US for the better comp but instead to test himself in the US to bump up how much he is worth to the UFC.

I remember Dana saying "anyone who main events a PPV card makes atleast $1million" I think he was exaggerating, but 70k is sheepish in comparison to what Shane would've been paid.

That sounds like a load of BS to me.


You telling me Renan Barao made a million dollars for his fight against Faber?

No, Dana is.

Again, I think he's exaggerated those, but Carwin surely made a hell of a lot more than 70k.

To be honest it's useless to speculate, especially when you consider how it relates to the thread. ZUFFA has made it clear they don't want media, fans, or other fighters to know how much they pay, and that includes guys like Khalidov.

When there is almost nothing to off of outside of the absolute MEGA-stars like the contracts of Randy Couture, Overeem, Lesnar, GSP and Nick Diaz that have actually been examined down to specific bonuses and clauses....I doubt anyone can really get a firm idea on how much money they can possibly make in the UFC without being THE guy. And that's not exactly a promising prospect right now with that Anderson Silva guy at the top of the division.

Hence, why Khalidov laughed at the offer and stayed in KSW.


Hell, Bibiano Fernandez is proven and would definitely be fighting for a title with his combination of world class pedigree and athleticism and yet, even HE laughed off the UFC to fight in Japan.
