Yesterday, MMAInterviews.TV reported that they had learned that Ronda Rousey would make $75,000 to show, $75,000 to win, and a percentage of the PPV buys in her first UFC fight, a title defense against Liz Carmouche in February. They also reported that Carmouche was only to be paid $12,000 to show and $12,000 to win versus Rousey.

The news created a frenzy on the Underground, with members arguing the business behind paying Rousey, a UFC first-time so much money and a cut of the profit. MMAInterviews.TV later updated their article to include a note that Rousey's longtime manager Darin Harvey refuted those numbers.

Today, UFC President Dana White came on the Underground to also refute the initial report:

Ufc should pay their win bonus' based on the odds of the fight.  So if Ronda is favored 15-1 that Carmouche should get 12 to show and 180 for win and Ronda would get her 75 and 75 (or whatever it actually is).

Thatsjustlikeyouropinionman - Rousey doesn't deserve 75/75. I don't give a fuck how hot she is.

When a warrior like Duffee comes back for 8/8, the thought of rousey making that much, for be a girl, is sickening. Phone Post
Never mind Lauzon. Guy makes enough to cover his parking at the event at best. Thank eff for his sake he will be a billionaire by the time he retires on bonuses alone. Phone Post

Honestly though, how does Ronda's pay effect us? Who cares. I get that people think she doesn't deserve the money over other fighters. But it's not like she's personally stealing money from them. Paying Ronda less money doesn't give those other fighters more money. It's just that those other fighters deserve more, but this isn't Ronda's fault.

Fwiw, i was in line at office depot last night and there was a pro MMA fighter on the cover of a magazine. Not Anderson, not Jones, not GSP or Cain and it certainly wasn't Hendo or Machida. Yep, Ronda.

She clearly gets more mainstream print, radio, and TV coverage than all male MMA fighters combined. Will that translate to viewers? We'll see. Phone Post

This and I believe it will.

My 24 year old female cousin who weighs approx 100 lbs. asked me about her over Xmas break. Never discussed fighting of any kind before with her. She wanted to know when she was fighting so her and some friends could watch. It's going to open up a whole new market. Phone Post

I have no probs with Ronda making that if she is.  Good for her.  And Liz isn't doing too bad either.  Didn't Keith Jardine, after fighting 6 times in the UFC, headline a PPV with Chuck and only make 7/7.  Liz is way ahead of the game right now.

The topic of the thread is that it's false that she is getting 75/75 and yet you're here bitching like a fucking baby that she doesn't deserve to get 75/75.... fucking mental midget. Reading comprehension indeed.

How come everyone here is such an asshole? Mom didn't hug you enough? Dana is saying that because she is making more than 75/75, and even if it's less (which it isn't), it's definitely more than Duffee or Lauzon, so his point is valid regardless. The roid rage is strong in this thread

Rumor has it that Ronda will fight Kimbo next, winner to get James Toney.

No it's not a valid point. Nobody is buying a PPV to watch Todd Duffee. That's just the way it is. Phone Post

Hate to break it to you but nobody is buying a PPV to watch Rousey either

See this is the mentality that most fans have. The difference between the way you view it compared to the way a business minded person (Dana, etc..) views it is opening the eyes of new viewers. It's not that in MMA she's a bigger star, it's just that as the nation/ world gets on yahoo or espn and I'm sure the list goes on and on, they see a women getting exposure to the highest degree. All I'm saying is, it makes sense if you think about it. I have no basis for the pay nor do I care but IMO that's the ufc's angle so to speak. Phone Post

Well, good for her if she's getting a PPV cut. And if other fighters aren't getting those numbers, then they have to be smart and approach this carefully to try and get Zuffa to give them more.
