Wow, Nate just fought for the title not to long ago and is only making $15k? I know it's been discussed before but the pay scale in the UFC is seriously horrible. AND this was a fox card.

yo Myles Jury hit me up if you want new management

The one I found shocking was Thompson. Good for you Josh though the guy was highly underrated but can't believe he is pulling that kind of coin

Plus he has a bonus so the actual payouts were

Frank Mir 200k
Benson Henderson 200k
Gilbert Melendez 175k
Josh Thompson 145k
Daniel Cormier 126k
Matt Brown 110k
Yoel Romero 70k
Jordan Mein 66k
Joseph Benevidez 66k
Jorge Masvidel 60k

Interesting to point out of the top ten payouts, 6 were Strikeforce guys, two were WEC guys, one's an TUF alum and the highest paid guy is a UFC guy but also likely to get cut this year because he keeps having terrible fights.

I can see why Cesar Gracie got canned as Nate's manager... only $15k guaranteed?! Where is the rest of it?

MikeHawk 04-22-2013 12:47 AM

Glad to see the Strikeforce guys aren't getting completely shafted.

Frank Mir better watch out for the pay cut police.

DonRifle 04-22-2013 03:45 AM

Was strikeforce actually making any money before the UFC took it over or was it running at a loss?
Some serious contracts they had going on across their roster.

They were making 30 million a year when they sold to the UFC. The investors just decided to take the money and run.
