I'm getting tired head trying to keep up with this discussion. Truly happy to see Ian getting what he deserves and can't wait to see him get back in the cage.

DeusEx - 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.<br><br>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 <img src="/images/phone/apple.png" alt="Phone Post" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/>



A lot of them do their jobs and finish fights...


Is pretty sad that that I make more money than fighters.
This is the argument that Diaz uses. He shouldn't have to promote the fightvto make the money.

But guess what.


You do.

If the perception is test Ian only feats paid more because of hid following due yo the Ug, it would be plain stupidity to fit utilize this gift that the Ug provides.


Promote yourself, promote your fight and be a fucking boss. Tests the creepy way Phone Post

MMALOGIC - I dont have a problem with Zuffa's total payout... I have a problem of the structure and how it's distributed.

Show money needs to represent at least 2/3rds of a fighters paycheck. this I believe will create an environment where fighters can perform better.

the biggest obstacle fighters face on average is taking what they do in the gym and bringing it into the octogan... In general there are only 2 major differences between the octogan and the gym besides the opponent not being a atraining partner...

The first differencce are the lights/crowd... this discomfort mitigates itself the more time you get in the octogan.

The second difference is Money... this stress can be mitigated if the athlete knows they earned 2/3rds of their pay by just making it through the camp and into the octogan.

I dont have a problem with the total payout... I have a problem with how the total payout is distributed. I have a problem with nearly 2/3rds of a payroll (non ppv cut talent) being made up of bonus money.

this type of boiler room operation is unproductive... it hurts zuffa, it hurts the fighters, and it hurts the fans.


lol this fuckin joker... hate to break it to you because you sound like an egotistical maniac but nobody from the UFC needs to prove anything nor owe you an explanation in hopes to gain your approval.

So a guy who fights for the UFC comes on here and praises the UFC for how well they pay him and yet there you are, a fan, telling him that he's wrong and you know better.

Has anyone ever heard a UFC fighter come out and say "I'm not being paid enough?" because as long as I'm not hearing that I see nothing wrong with the pay structure.

Thanks to Creepy for sharing this info and best of luck next go round!

Sorry Hollywood didn't work out, Shane. They must be afraid of you so to force relocation. Phone Post

 Cool to see the info Ian, but theses threads always turn retarted now matter what the fighters view on their pay is.  I totally agree with you, it's a performance based job, much like selling furniture or cars.  You basically work off a commssion, but instead of getting paid based on selling something you get paid based on exciting people. 

One thing I'm pretty sure MMALogic doesn't understand that these backroom checks etc, are nothing but a giant help to the fighters.  It's like recieving a tip when you are a bartender or something, especially since from what I understand Zuffa pays the taxes on those bonuses so you get tax-free money.  Especially for a sport that really has only been around for 20 years these guys are making sick money.  They make more money on average than some sports that are much more ingrained in our overall culture over the last 2 decades such as Skateboarding and Snowboarding.  Sure Tony Hawk and Shaun White make Anderson Silva money, but the average high end extreme athlete wishes they were making Uncle Creepy money.

HAHAHAHA! nice one mr. carwin!

damn this thread blew up over night, the entire point is just to say there are a lot of bonus's that fans don't see, like its really nice to know if you lose and you put on a show and your only supposed to get paid 9k you end up getting a 25k bonus in the mail that they arent required to pay cause you got a family to feed.

i love my job the UFC is def. the big leagues!
