Surprised to see that Ed Herman is making more than Mac Danzig.

And wasn't the Sakara fight a prelim? They are paying him a lot to fight on the undercard.

Man, Mac Danzig's pay sucks. lol!

I thought the whole point of winning TUF was getting a big money contract!

Tommy Speer wouldn't have saved the farm with that. lol!

"Six figure" contract, which technically really is a broad term. Six figures could easily and most likely does mean $100,000.

Gotta almost feel bad for some of these fighters. Unless theres alot of unseen money they get paid, its tough to see how they support this career. Alot of these undercard guys fight like twice a year, at 7-10k a fight? Even Josh neer, a supposed well known guy who's fought for awhile getting 9k (minus 30k for FOTN) is pretty tough. They do sign the contracts, so I guess UFC will always have the upper hand since theres so many fighters out there to pay 10k to fight.

Yeah I'm pretty sure the 'six figure contract' is a $100,000 contract spread out over 6 fights or so.

They get paid what they deserve. If its shitty pay, or not enough, get a real job?

Its not rocket science.
