Good, after the fight he was in he deserves it. I think all the fighters on that card deserve some sort of a bonus, except the Phil Davis fight, which was just bad luck.. Best card in a while. Phone Post

 1.15m in payroll.   the gate was 1.1 million.   Once the sponsorship money increaase for the ufc and overseas license fees increase, Zuffa can put on these events on free TV regularly

 SPike used to pay 35m to the UFC... fox pays 100m so you can say these fox shows are priced at roughly 4 to 6 million per.  the bottom level ppv at the time was roughly 250k buys which is essentially a 6 million dollar license fee (250k times 50 divided by 2).

Joe Lauzon still earns 24/24. His 13th fight in the UFC. Good thing he collects bonuses like a motherfucker.

Seriously though, I hope they give that guy some extra cash, boring ass Bader earns 47k, and everybody loves Lauzon, so...

He was on the pre-lims, when he makes the main card he will get paid, i'm sure he's on his way being a fan favorite. I agree he should get paid, always entertaining. Phone Post

Jlau always performs...  he needs to be on a 40 plus 20 contract.  Zuffa needs to start factoring wins and losses differently in terms of who stays on the roster and who gets main event, comain event and main card slots...   There are fights where both guys win (ie: varner and JLO) and then there are fights where both guys lose (boetsch and Lombard). 

guys who show up for a sparring session and point fighters need to be weeded out.

Sad.


People in Retail stores make more money than these fighters.



I think they get more money even with the sponsorship deals.

A guy who makes 8k.....Lets say he fights 3 times a year.


That's 24k.....32k if he fights 4 times a year.



How much more will the sponsership give them?...Im guessing at most 7k.


Sorry but their is people working in retail stores full time making more or around the same....That is sad.

  true someone working 40 hours a week at 12$ per hour could make more than a guy making 8k per fight fighting 3 times a year but here is what you arent factoring in .


his contract is like this 8k to show 8 k to win    if he wins it goes to 10k to show 10 k to win if he wins that it goes to 12k to show 12k to win

so knowing that lets assume he wins first 2 and loses 3rd that means he makes 48k for the year not counting sponsorships.

the only way you stay the same is if you lose.



all that said the shlub working 40 hours doing something he hates is making his money but the guy getting punched in the face is home with his kids when hes not in camp, and gets paid for what he loves.

Exactly. Most of these guys get paid to train, and to sport their sponsors logos. These amounts are often match what their purses are.

He wants attention because he gets none irl.

He posts here all day on weekends and during events because he has no one to watch them with.

LOL

feel bad for the guy

he's the hero Sherdog deserves, but not the one it needs right now...and so we'll hate him, because he can take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector

Joe will never make big money in the UFC for show/win amounts. He's a normal human, he respects opponents and doesn't talk shit, and he doesn't ramble like an idiot WWE participant.

If the UFC paid on talent, records and what fighters deserve, he'd be near the top of the heap. But since it's not a real sports league, he will never get there unless he stoops to that level. Dana's level.

All you care about is Zuffa. This Forum deserves a better class of Troll. And I'm gonna give it to them!



Just because is a troll, doesn't make it not true.
