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.
I'm surprised they are actaully starting to get paid more. I use to look at the salaries of past UFC events and most of the main card fights (as long as you weren't some superstar) were getting between 12k and 6k and the undercard fighters got like 3k. So it's good to see them make around 30k and in time they'll make more, which is well deserved.
