the hughes fight and the sylvia fight purses add up to 133.000.

the fighters that won the tuff show have contracts that call for the first year they get 12.000 the second 24.000 the third 36.000 per fight.

i cant believe what some of you people write.

chuck lidell gets 250.000 per fight. he is the highest paid fighter.

matt hughes gets 120.00 per fight but with GSP he took 75.000 and ppv points.

the top fighters get percentages of the ppv. before posting you should know what your talking about.

It does not matter if they get a percentage or not, and by the way I think many of us knew that already but the point being the "PAYOUTS" are not structured right plain & simple. If you want to bring in the PPV % fine, then GSP should have gotten a bigger piece than Hughes and so on...I really did not think the concept of the payout being distorted would be this complex for some of you. This is just like the NFL or NBA rookies who haven't played a single minute but already have guaranteed salaries higher than the veterans, it's absurd and down right wrong...I'm done with my .02 let's move on...

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

I cant tell that many of you knew about anything.
To say that PPV points dont mean anything shows how ignorent you are.
If you think Matt Hughes only made 75.000 for this fight then you are mistaken. The bottom line is if you can negotiate for PPV percentages you are going to do much better. For Monson to take the small salary is one thing but if he got some PPV points he could have done just as well as Sylvia.The up side for the UFC is the do not have to advertise how much they acctually pay there fighters. I hear people talking about some guys making more money for a fight that was not televised then fights that where televised. Think about what you are saying. Do you really believe that. Anyway the guy that talked that garbage is a goof saying that the pay scales dont make sense. They dont to people like him because he could not negotiate his way out of a paper bag. Thats why this stuff is reserved for laywers and contracts. These fighters are not as dumb as you. They have people looking out for them.

This is a forum, where people ask question and people in the know, like you, can respond. If you have more knowledge, great, but no need to call people dumb.

I do find interesting the different infos about the salary brackets, bonuses and PPV points... guess I must be dumb too....

By the way, ignoring your insults let me make something perfectly clear, I have not ever disagreed that certain fighters are smarter at negotiating than others or that the UFC pays out points etc. etc. I have simply been stating the the current "Posted Pay-Out" structure is wrong IMO. Let me give you an "easy" analogy, let's say you buy some tickets for a raffle and you are lucky enough to win the first prize of 2 tickets to Chuck E Cheese and the second place winner got $100,000 dollars in cash and beautiful Royal Carribean Cruise and even better yet the third place guy gets 1 million in cash. Would you still say that was a good structured pay-out? I don't think so. The higher up the fight card the higher the pay and if you're a title contender you should be paid half of what the winner would make...plain & simple

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

Most of those paychecks arent even worth all the training and the possibility of getting seriously hurt. Why not go fight in Pride and get paid real money.
