Thanks for the candid account Ian. The thing with most pay structures is you can never please everyone.

You and probably lots of other Zuffa employees are delighted with their pay and its structure. Others might not be. That's life. Don't like, don't sign.

The guy who's presenting a case for 2/3 up front pay model needs to realise that might not suit everyone. Like I said, you can't please everyone. His stance is a little odd given you are clearly very happy, it's almost like that annoys him?!

Anyway, best of luck with your next fight Ian. You'll be relevant for a long time in this division; and hopefully very wealthy because of it. Phone Post

I don't buy it.



IMO He only paid you more because your an UGer and your division is new and you were in the main card.



How about all those fighters who fight in prelims?....I doubt dana gives them 20k +.

Maybe they should market themselves better? Or put in the time Ian spends with his fans? Just a thought.

Other than that he prolly didn't pay em 80k cause I doubt 20,000 Australians were on there feet as he slammed DJ's head into the canvas while screaming and riding him like a fuckin buckin bronco Phone Post

Is pretty sad that that I make more money than fighters.

UGCTT_UncleCreepy - they pay you to do your job, i did my job twice people were entertained and i got paid a lot more than what i was supposed to get paid...

i signed a contract to fight for a certain amount of money and they paid me almost 10x the amount i signed for based off my performance, they didnt have too? dana just did.

 Ian, you said you made over $80,000 for this fight, and that was over 10x the amount you were obligated to be paid. 

I am assuming your base was 6/6? 

What does "main event sponsor" mean?  Your management got you sponsorship money, or you were given sponsorship money from the UFC?

Would you have made this post had you not received the bonus?

Why doesn't Rashad Evans make this post?

Nah I can work a regular job at a retail store and make more than the guys getting 8k or 6k a fight....in a year.


Just to put it into perspective.

Incase you don't know how sponsors work when u sign a contract with a sponsor they pay u more to be on prelims, more to be on the main card, even more to be co main event and than if ur the main event they pay you a lot more.. It's how contracts work its negotiated between sponsor and agent Phone Post

So the sponsors on prelims pay more than the UFC pays?...lol.



Seriously how much more money does a guy getting paid 8k by UFC get by sponsors....Im serious.


The most I see is between 2k-1k.

I'm putting it into perspective, but just like any job you are given an opportunity IF..... accepted, If you perform you go up, if not you go down.

They aren't obligated to pay these guys the extra money they dish out in bonus's... They do it cause they performed well. just like any job. Phone Post

Where did you get that? I said its negotiated genius. So based off UFC fight a sponsor will say hey if u become co main event we will pay u this much cause of the exposure. Can u read? Phone Post

 So you agree Blah-apologist, that sponsors HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH THE UFC?

Ian earned his shot on merit, yes?

Since prelims are on fuel they pay more for exposure maybe you read what I said wrong and forget there are also Facebook fights. Phone Post
