But UFC is not the minor leagues. SF or Bellator would be considered that. Not being part of a PPV UFC event....
Yes, no one comes to see him, but he is a UFC fighter.
And you do realize that AAA or AA baseball players still make anywhere from 50k to sometimes 500k right? And get tons of things paid for them. They don't pay for practice/training. And these baseball players aren't even sharing a platform with the MLB. These low UFC fighters ARE sharing a stage with the GSPs and Anderson's of MMA.
100k and getting most anything paid for is a tad different than making 5k and having to pay for training camps and sometimes travel for your coaches...
