This is what happens when you sign a contract. This is capitalism, not socialism. There's no profit sharing.

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.

Even still, Dana gave out more money than my parent makes in 2 years to a bottomfeeder just for hitting a triangle choke.

Some of them work a real job.

Really kind of bummed that Machida got KOTN, would have rather seen that go to Makdessi.

We also have to remember that what they report out as the fight contract amount if often much less than a fighter makes off other income such as sponsors (ever see how many sponsors they have on their shorts and banner) appearance fee, endorsement, etc.

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.

Okay, how many other knockouts in the UFC were better than a crane kick?

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.

Those are the numbers released to the commission. I would bet Aldo and Homminick both make almost 100K from the UFC in not released income as well as both likely making another 100K from sponsorship. None of the top 4 on the card are going broke hell Shields likely made over half a million when all was said and done at the least.

Hominick isn't at all underpaid.

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.
