Question

If the UFC is seriously so tight on money, how are other orginizations paying people like Nick Diaz more money, when UFC is about 98% of the market, and other orginizations 2%? I mean seriously why doesnt UFC offer someone like Diaz a little more then these orginizations are paying them?

I didnt mean they are tight on money per say. They pay the fighters like they are tight on money. Except for their big stars.

I kinda made a post about this in another thread.

Basically the UFC spent ALOT and still spends alot of money building up fighters, advertising, sanctioning, building the sport basically...while someone like Gary Shaw, etc can get a name figher who recently left the UFC and ride their popularity.

Basically, UFC spent alot of money building them, Exite XC etc can use their investors money purely on the fighter...but then look at the undercard...the recent show at the playboy mansion, one guys purse was $500! lol. Lowest i see on UFC cards is $3000 for the nobodys

because they still think they can pay the fighters whatever they want. it'll take time and some more quittings, before dana will be forced to reevaluate his business model. he's gotta start paying fighters what they are worth and stop playing hardball with their contracts.

The ability to quote is a good substitute for brains

the ufc being at the top of the food chain right now

can pay there fighters lesser pay

big promotion, big media coverage (in comparison), and of course big endorsements

the point is the ufc dosnt have to pay top dollar for low to mid tier fighters.....because these fighters are begging to get there foot in the door

now this may change in years to come.....but until then i say let the good times roll

The most solid advice I can give to anyone who fights BJ Penn is...do not motivate the guy. Lets face it, BJ although talented, is naturally lazy. Your job is to NOT convince him to step on that treadmill.
