Doesn't matter if you make your company $1 billion; if you signed up to make $5,000 then that's what you are going to make.
What about the retired actors and singers who are starving but companies are making $100s of millions using their likeliness, old movies, or music because they sold the rights away? That's capitalism. They don't get paid because they didn't negotiate properly.
Nobody "deserves" anything; just a fact of life in a capitalist society.

I know there is some serious cash in this sport at the higher levels from various sources.
No one is going to get rich in an entry level position particularly in this depressed economy.
I do think the UFC could afford to pad some of the undercard fighters salaries some.
These WEC contracts need to go. They are getting way too little to show. Under 10k co main eventer? Really?
I think Aldo is severely underpaid too.

Aldo might be though just for the simple fact that he headlined one of the few brandless paperviews in the history of MMA(event was simply called Aldo vs Faber, akin to a boxing match tbh)....and did a respectable 175k buys.
That's without the UFC brand power behind it.
