A grand a minute is low? For showing up at work once a quarter for a few minutes?I hope we're not guessing that, every day out of the cage, they all spend a full day training for a fight,and UFC should try to monitor and pay for all that time? I hope the four and some of the five figure guys don't think this is a full time job.

UFC 166 should have a big payroll. Cain gets 400k . Junior got 120/120 last fight (down from 400k base at 155). On that note, how the hell did they give JDS a pay cut?

You should see my paycheck. And I don't even fight. I would NEVER give up my anonymous status and income to fight in a cage for those pennies. Makes you wonder what kind of talent MMA actually attracts.

Mir has been with the company a long time. Plus he was underpaid for a while so this makes sense.

For anyone bitching about this, go look at the latest Bellator pay.
