Jung set to make $20k/$20k for title fight at UFC 163


The issue of fighter pay has been a hot topic lately and today an interesting story surfaced about what Chan Sung Jung will make in his UFC 163 title bout with Jose Aldo:

How much fight money are you receiving for this fight?

I will be making 20,000 dollars to show, and another 20,000 dollars if I win. I do not get any PPV points. After 2 more fights, I will be able to negotiate my contract. Hopefully, I will be in a good position when that happens.

How much does your girlfriend help in preparing for a fight?

Honestly, without my girlfriend I would not be in such good shape. She takes care of my diet, household chores, and even the finances for my gym. I actually let her borrow 11,000 dollars yesterday. I wasn’t nervous at all. Is there a woman in this world you wouldn’t feel nervous about giving that much money to (laughs)?
