Depends massively according to their contract. They make better money I think since the Spike deal but for instance when Ken Shamrock fought Rich Franklin, Ken made a ton more cash than Franklin because he was still being paid according to an old contract which was long term.

No doubt he is in a great position for a major pay increase when it's up for renewel though.

You're basically looking at a range from about $2K to about $300K, I think. There are a few exceptions, like the $1 million+ or so that Gracie got in the Hughes' fight (according to rumors).

I think people like Liddell earn around $300-$400K for a fight now.

bullsh*t

The only reason Dana White said that is because he's a cheap bastard and doesn't want to admit how little he pays his guys.
Fighters like Royce Gracie get 400,000 dollars for a fighter after having not fought for the UFC in 11 years while the champion Matt Hughes only gets 55,000 dollars.
Main card fighters get about 10-300 k while undercard fighters get about 1k-5k. it's bullshit.

Chuck makes about a million to half a million. . . tito makes 200,000, Arlovski makes 90,000, and i think hughes makes about 70,000. . . Rick Franklin has the worst contract, he gets like 30,000. . . . the ultimate fighters that win get a 300,000 dollar contract for 3 years, and Forest Griffin's last pay check was about 19,000 against tito, the ultimate finaly fighters that loose get 10,000 and the winners get 10,000+10,000 for winning, the other Ultimate Fighters get paid about 2,000-10,000 depending on how good you are, like leben and swick will probably make close to 10,000, probably like 7,000. . . . Cotoure got paid i believe more the liddell every fight, like 1.5 million plus a if he wins, he gets another million, and Chuck is about the same way with his contract, but Rick Franklin has the worst long term contract, he just gets paid well because of sponsers like Xyience . . . .

lol

and how do you know hes cheap? did you see these guys pay cheques?

and what differnce does it make if you know what a guy makes or not? your not the one getting paid to do it. do you really think these guys are dumb? they know roughly what the ufc takes in per show, do you really matt hughes (the champion) will go fight for 55000 dollars and travel the country for the ufc promoting it? give me a break

how much do pride fighters get? more or less? if it more than why are these guys over there? if its less than why arent there guys here in the ufc?

Pride always seem to be tryng to cut their costs by dishing out cards in an overly zealous manner.

Openers for the ppv's get about 2K for the fight and another 2k for a win.

Royce got over a million for the Hughes fight though. Tito's on about 250k a fight.
