Don't think that. Don't ever think that. The UFC is a business. Businesses go into business to make money. The reason that so many former UFC fighters complain about what they make from the company is because they see what a cash cow the fight business is. Sixty minutes said that the UFC does like 400,000 ppv buys per show. At 40 bucks a pop, thats like 16mil every show. The overhead for putting on a show like that is a generous 4 to 5 mil a production. Are you telling me that the UFC can't pay Vera more than 40k with the remaining 11 mil? Give me a break. The fighter payroll does good to break 400k.
