5 Shocking Facts About The UFC Pay Scale

Quote:
In the past few weeks the topic of UFC fighter pay has been a huge point of discussion.
Personally, I don’t really see anything wrong with the UFC’s model or how they conduct their business. If it wasn’t for the sport’s popularity, that they built, I wouldn’t have this amazing job that I have and none of you would be reading this.
That being said, these 5 statistics are very eye-opening.
ALL THE CREDIT FOR THIS LIST GO TO MMASENTINAL.COM


[1] Did you know the worst bench warmer on the worst Women’s NBA team makes double what the average entry-level UFC fighter does?
[2] How about this, there was a UFC event in 2013 in which, apparently, the highest guaranteed pay on the card was $30k/$30k.
[3] Did you know, a fighter received only $12,000 in disclosed pay while fighting for a title and main-eventing a Pay-Per-View, this year?
[4] The median average wage for a top 15 fighter in the UFC is just $30,500 per year.
[5] Floyd Mayweather, in the 12 months between summer 2011 and summer 2012, made approximately four times more in guaranteed salary than the entire UFC roster combined. He fought twice.

Sounds low when you put it that way.

That Floyd Mayweather statistic is unsurprising and should be taken with a grain of salt. No one makes Floyd Mayweather money.

UFC just doesn't make as much money as other sports. WNBA players also mostly required to play in college, even benchwarmers. Sometimes it seems UFC will grab some 5-2 dude off the streets to fill a prelim spot just because they're from the area the event is held in.

Why are people so obsessed with how much fighters make? I don't get it. They willingly signed a contract. It's not like they were tricked into doing something they didn't want to do.

Not sure if that counts with new divisions.

UFC 157
Liz Carmouche: $12,000

Maywheather promotes his own fights its an unfair comparison since he is both the UFC and the fighter in that sense.

I think people are naturally curious where all the money is going when they see low fighter payouts.

Don't like the pay? Get a real job.

Simple as that.
