I believe that this information should be public but there is a large problem that keeps dana and the fertittas from doing it...
imagine if that info went public, Fighter A has a higher ranking or is more popular than Fighter B but is paid less. and upon finding this out, Fighter A remembers how dana assured him that he is getting paid more than Fighter B, but it is obvious that is not the case anymore.
What does Fighter A do? he asks for a pay raise, and if he doesnt get it he threatens to elope to another rising organization, hurting the UFC while at the same time creating competition.
while we have no idea what fighters pay is REALLY like, i think its safe to say most of them are underpaid and lied to.
that is the simple reason dana will NEVER make salary information accessible by the public.
