Pat Barry's payday sucked. But I'm also surprised Cro Cop took a 75 to show 75 to win contract. He had to have gotten some PPV percentages in that too.

How are people on $4000? Wtf, that is ridiculous. I thought $8000 was the UFC's minimum and even that is low.

And I hope Pat Barry gets a new contract after helping hype that card.

Their usual starting contract is 5k to show and 5k to win. After 3 fights it get's re-evaluated. Provided you win of course.

I never thought the TUF winners contract was overly generous but having seen some of the salaries given to the likes of Barry and Thiago, Wilks must be delighted with what he gets paid!

Chuck still making half a mil off these fights. I would keep fighting if I made that much to be knocked out too. Still, mad props to him. Nothing but respect for the Iceman.

So about $1.5m on a gate of $4.2m, 35% of the gate toward fighter salaries. Wonder what the rest of the crews' salaries are like. How much do they pay Rogan, Goldberg or Buffer - I bet it's more than $11K and they don't get the crap beat out of them.

Rumour is PPV sales were very weak so it sounds like this may not have been much of a success. No surprise from my perspective since Liddell and Franklin are no longer the draws they once were. Most fans, I think, want to see the younger, true MMA fighters in the ring because they are just so much more exicting to watch. The secoind thing, in my humble opinion, is the $60.00 to buy the PPV is out of line. Keep the cost at $50 like it was originally and watch the PPV sales grow.

Not to mention the permit for the event, event insurance, bond, Nevada State Athletic Commission staff, a UFC staff of what over 100 world wide?

Bills add up.

I hope they give some of their fighters a cut of the PPV and help with expenses and per diem.

I can see why Chuck made $500K (I would wager 20%+ of the viewers bought tickets or PPV just because of his name alone) but Big Ben seemed to walk away with a substantial chunk considering his mediocre talent and draw.

poor pat barry, i like him too

$11,000 - $2,750 (25% tax) - $1,100 (10% manager fee) - $3,000 (training camp est.)

= ~ $4,150

and left with broken hand and foot (luckily ufc insurance will pay medical bill)

it gets worse when you realize he only fights twice a year and that $4,150 pretty much is his 6 month worth salary

makes me want to cry
