All you care about is Zuffa. This Forum deserves a better class of Troll. And I'm gonna give it to them! Just because is a troll, doesn't make it not true.

GSP, Anderson and Franklin's paychecks disagree with Humphrey's rant.

Joe will never make big money in the UFC for show/win amounts. He's a normal human, he respects opponents and doesn't talk shit, and he doesn't ramble like an idiot WWE participant.If the UFC paid on talent, records and what fighters deserve, he'd be near the top of the heap. But since it's not a real sports league, he will never get there unless he stoops to that level. Dana's level.

he's the hero Sherdog deserves, but not the one it needs right now...and so we'll hate him, because he can take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector...a DoucheEX

Exactly. Most of these guys get paid to train, and to sport their sponsors logos. These amounts are often match what their purses are.

  true someone working 40 hours a week at 12$ per hour could make more than a guy making 8k per fight fighting 3 times a year but here is what you arent factoring in . his contract is like this 8k to show 8 k to win    if he wins it goes to 10k to show 10 k to win if he wins that it goes to 12k to show 12k to win so knowing that lets assume he wins first 2 and loses 3rd that means he makes 48k for the year not counting sponsorships. the only way you stay the same is if you lose. all that said the shlub working 40 hours doing something he hates is making his money but the guy getting punched in the face is home with his kids when hes not in camp, and gets paid for what he loves.
