UFCThe Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is a U.S.-based mixed martial arts organization, recognized as the largest MMA promotion in the world. The UFC is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada and is owned and operated by Zuffa, LLC. This promotion is responsible for solidifying the sport's postion in the history-books.
UFC is currently undergoing a remarkable surge in popularity, along with greater mainstream media coverage. UFC programming can now be seen on FOX, FX, and FUEL TV in the United States, as well as in 35 other countries worldwide.
If the fighters don't like the pay they should try turning up the aggression. They can't deny you if you consistently beat the other guy the fuk down. Thats why Diego gets paid so fat.
I partially agree, the harder workers and the exciting fighters get paid more. Joslin got $3,000 and that sucks, but now that everyone knows how good he is it'll reflect his pay the next time he's invited back. To put it in an oppinionated perspective, it's the same as being a salesman and making commision. Each fight is a sale, you impress someone with the first sale, you charge more the next time.
if these people are contracted ONLY for the UFC then maybe 10k for a fight isnt great. But if they have the chance to fight else where then 5K isnt bad for loseing IMO.
In the UFC you may get 5 fights (per annum), so a min of say 40k. If your NOT contracted and you get 5k for a fight, as long as your not damaged the training your doing will help you destroy someone on KOTC etc and win another 3k easily. So thats 8k in 3 months. Thats 36K in a year. Not bad being as your skill is "hitting people" and lets be honest, your not even the best at that!!!!!!!!!
I think you should get paid by the round or minute or something. Riggs and Diego making that much money for about 1 minute of actual fighting, meanwhile Joslin and others make diddly-squat for fighting tough 3-5 round battles. You should get paid by how long you are in the ring, or how you end the fight. Not your name.
Almost! I am not whining, I am just making a statement that why whine if you watch it? It really is none of our business how much they get paid. Are all the same people who cry about how much the fighters get paid also paying for the PPV or just taking cheap ways around? If they are, then they should be kicked in the nuts for being so ignorant. I don't care if anyone whines, it is amusing because in reailty nobody on here knows shit about Dana White or how much these guys should be getting paid. If it really was that bad, these guys would not be doing it.
1) I don't feel bad for the fighters
2) I'm only talking about simple mathematics
3) It's my opinion and I'm entitled to it.
4) Look at any other efficently run professional sport and see if a loser in any match, game, or bout makes anything close to what the winner makes (Please don't even bring up boxing, that's a joke too). The 'STRUCTURE" of the payouts sucks, and yes $3000 for a PRO MMA fighter is absolutely fukin' pathetic.
You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
