whadafykumeanitstaken - Would jds havw gotten $400k for the w also?

Not likely, generally when base purse is that high there is no win bonus.  Though both guys probably got a PPV cut.

Wow J-Lau taking only 27k for his fight, he's been with the UFC for over 10 fights you would think Zuffa would have handed him a better contract by now.

Good job Joe keeps getting FOTN bonuses because he is worth a lot more than this. Phone Post

Very surprised Boetsch and Melvin get that high of base pay.

Time to up Joe's salary, Dana. (I know I know, bonuses blah blah blah)

Yes.

With guys like that they dont get win bonuses it seems, just a flat pay and then PPV money.

whadafykumeanitstaken - Can anyone else rememeber the last UFC card the lowest paid fighter got $12k? That is encouraging.

6+6 is the lowest pay on the card, pretty sure the base has been at 6K for a while now...

Edit: never mind, forgot Lauzon didn't win his season of TUF.  Man, how the fuck did Manny ever beat Lauzon?

LilBrockonmychest - I'm really glad Lauzon is getting his OTN bonuses. 6 1/2 years and 14 fights (not including TUF fights) for Zuffa and he's getting $27K to show. Joe has been in the UFC longer than Boetsch has been a pro fighter and Tim gets more than him to show.

Agreed, I'm pretty surprised by this as well. I wish I knew what kind of discretionary bonus Miller and Joe got for getting the Main card out of the muck

The fact that Melvin Guillard makes more than Joe is sad

as usual the top guys are underpaid and the low card guys are overpaid (in regards to how much money they bring in for the UFC).

I put no stalk in the commission figures. They are not even close to how much the fighters actually make.

Deuce77 - Lauzon has earned the right to earn more.

No shit eh? Fucking Koscheck makes quadruple what Lauzon does for being a blanket with a fro.

Joe is going to be banged up when he retires, he better have millions in the bank Zuffa you cheap bastards.

I know Bloodworth didn't perform well, but only 6000...

And Lauzon? Wtf? Deserves much more than that.

I don't think Tim is overpaid, lauzon is just underpaid. Both those guys should be getting a 100k a fight. Boetsch is top ten. And we all know what lauzon does Phone Post

Jaime Varner needs to get paid in his next contract. He's fought arguably the 3 most exciting fighters in the lightweight division and has beaten two of them and had a fight of the night with the other....
