So stepping up in the biggest fighting league in the world and fighting for a title (possible 5 round war) grants you 250 or 350k.  The UFC is an absolute disgrace.. not only the actual pay but also the fighters get peanuts from Reebok to wear their shitty apparel... shame on the UFC and Reebok When the ufc start paying the same % as Nfl NHL or MLB then maybe then i Will start respecting This organsation again.

Jones right nostril - 350k is life changing money though. And now Dustin and Israel are champions they will hopefully make a lot more next fight.

Hey Einstein, you need to factor in:

Taxes
Trainer fees
Agent fees
Training expenses.


Adensanya is probably taking home 100-175K

So the top 4 fighter's on the card cost 1.1 mil.

Lucky for BLAF these guys aren't the sharpest tools in the shed.

350K is insane but I guess that’s what they have to pay champions. 

 

Crazy though, shows how if you want to make funny be flashy and fun to watch.

they are now owned by a group and company that has to answer to investors.

when the owners were in the casino business and it was private and they had a ton of cash coming in for merchandise sales and other sources of revenue they had bonus money laying around.

now all the investors would have to review and approve any and all locker room bonuses.

i am not saying that no longer give them but i would not be surprised if they didn't.

they have several "fight night bonuses" that are approved ahead of time for certain things going into the fights but random handouts over those that are not approved would be interesting to see today.

Well no shit, but you also need to factor in his 50k bonus and other sources of income like sponsorships, non-obligatory bonus’ etc.. wouldn’t surprise me if he made half a million for this fight before expenses/tax. 

So no, he’s not walking out with 100-175k, that’s ludicrous.

Like Luke Thomas said about the co main and main event, if those 4 guys are not getting paid millions, then they are getting underpaid...I agree with Luke and to see Gastellum only get $150k, I cringe a bit

Damn they paid dude 12 + 12 on the main card. Dana and the UFC are pitiful in what they pay majority of the fighters.

And  100 gr to 175 it's absolutely life-changing money to most people. Not saying he doesn't deserve it if he doesn't properly invest that money in himself he doesn't deserve his future earnings
