The above figures are the fighter payout information that promoters are required by California law to submit to the state athletic commissions, including the winners' bonuses.

The figures do not represent a full accounting of each fighter's income.

Fighters bear significant costs including training expenses, a percentage to management, a percentage to the trainer, plus insurance, licenses, and taxes.

On the income side, sponsorship money can be a significant portion of the purse, although it is smaller than it was in the past, particularly for the mid tier fighters. As well there are explicit 'of the Night' performance bonuses noted above, and less formal 'locker room' bonuses that are mailed to fighters after the event.

Main event PPV fighters can receive a percentage of the PPV gross, as contracted.

Lastly, many fighters earn income from teaching, from appearances, and in many cases from regular employment in the non-fighting space.

Great information, however if I might make a suggestion. If you discuss averages, you cannot say an average is between this and that or anything other than the average.Mathematically speaking, the Average includes everything "between". So you are only allowed to use one number if you are talking about averages.Okay I am done.

What it changes is the notion that you read things carefully before arguing about them. It seems you don't.

Comparing to other sports won't work. The best comparison is boxing, and that had to have legislation to stop promoters fucking fighters in the ass.If the UFC are paying their fighters a fair amount of the revenue from their events then they would have no problem with legislation which protects that. Now what that fair amount is, I don't know, there are a lot of revenue streams which would need to be accounted for and some sort of formula for distribution produced.Earlier people were saying you can't just take gate + half of pvp sales and call it profit and I wasn't. I was saying reported fighter pay didn't even match the reported gate which Dana White said on the broadcast. After which a hypothetical number for buys, using the lowest guesstimate people had been offering, gave us an idea of the kinds of money they could expect to receive from that event alone. Does anyone really believe that the UFC's expenses for UFC 177 was over 1.6mil? I find that hard to believe, but I'd be happy for anyone to prove me wrong.

Each NFL team plays 16 games a year minimum. 32 teams x 16 games = 512 'events' per year not including the playoffs and the Super Bowl.Each ones of those games, given a few exceptions, SELLS OUT a stadium of 50-70,000 people (NFL average attendance is 63,000 fans). Average NFL ticket price, depending on the team, ranges from $110 (Cleveland Browns) to $292 (NY Giants). This makes the average NFL 'gate' worth between $6.93 million and $18.3 million. So, a NY Giants home game with 63,000 fans has a gate, on the average, worth more than TEN UFC 177's. Still think the UFC is big time enough to pay these guys what NFL benchwarmers make?Consider that more people will attend the next University of Michigan home game than will have purchased UFC 177, probably by an extremely wide margin.You think the product is 'oversaturated' and 'watered down' now? Just imagine what it would be like to have 512 UFC evens per year and then ask attendees to pay $110-292 per ticket to attend. Wouldn't happen and you know it. Even WNBA games pull more fans in attendance than most UFC events, so that's not a comparable reference point either. Hell, the National Lacrosse Association boasts an average fan attendance of 9,700 per game. UFC 177 had 11,100 in attendance. LOL.The UFC is the tiniest of the tiny when it comes to professional sports. It's barely a whiff of fumes in the tailpipe of the NFL, so any comparison to even a bench player for an NFL team is just beyond stupid. It shows just how little you grasp of the size of these organizations, and business in general, by comparing them to the UFC. Just because Dana White makes you think he's big time doesn't make it so. By the way, Magic Johnson recently paid around $700 million for the LA Sparks WNBA team. Apparently more people care about women's basketball than MMA, regardless of what you believe with your head in the sand.

Really? So the sports that are worth billions pay their athletes hundreds of millions, and the sports that's worth hundreds of millions pays their athletes 20k for title fights headlining a $60 PPV? Just stop dude, you're not going anywhere with this, even if you think you are...

You're right, my mistake. I read the article too quickly. Doesn't change the fact that it's chump change. The SEC college football association singed a deal with ESPN worth $2.5 BILLION over ten years, and that's not even a professional sport. When the UFC counts its money in millions and other sports teams count it in billions, you can't possibly compare them.
