They are making good money. When they are getting short changed, you will not see UFC holding fights because the fighters will leave.
There are other costs dude, but you can't tell me the UFC's budget is so tight they can only afford to pay Franklin $32 000 to fight ... these guys are giving up their lives, their faces, potentially their health ... many of them travel all around the country seeking training, they give up their jobs, etc. It's bull ... they just pay like crap because they know fighters would fight for pure recognition anyway ... they get away with it so they do it. If you don't think the execs and the masterminds behind the UFC aren't making a killing on the backs of these fighters, think again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
