These fighters get paid peanuts.
I'm sick of Dana trying to convince me otherwise.

UFC should disclose more of their pay. if i'm an aspiring fighter, 75k would motivate me a fuck lot more than 15k would.

Tape Serf - Anybody who thinks he only made $15k are lost. Actually, people who continue to use the listed salaries as ammo to bash Zuffa are just clueless.

That said. Nate managed to get rid of his incompetent manager...and somehow hire one even worse. LMAO @ Mike Kogan.

LOL

They must have figured they could pull a fast one on him before the shin-shaped bruise on his brain healed.

Liz only made 12k for headlining a huge PPV and being involved in a historic fight, she got exactly what the listed salary states and not a dollar more


Says who?

How do you know she didnt get a dollar more than 12k? I'd bet she got some sort of backroom bonus thrown her way.

<blockquote>Anderson's BBC in my Goku - Didn't he renegotiate right before the bendo fight? No wonder Nate dumped Cesar. <img src="/images/phone/apple.png" alt="Phone Post 3.0" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/></blockquote><br />

That doesn't make any sense. Cesar was the one who negotiated the contract extension that paid him 3x as much base purse to fight Benson just one fight ago.

Here's a practical theory on what happened. One that doesn't involve typos or UFC paying everyone mystical back room bonuses until they're all satisfied.

-Gracie negotiates new extension for Diaz in Summer 2012 with a $50k base purse in anticipation of Benson title fight
-Diaz loses every round of the title fight
-UFC, as they are wont to do at times, shreds the freshly-signed extension and makes a new "adjusted offer" that puts Nate back down to TUF Winner pay rate.
-Gracie balks at the contract restructuring/massive pay cut and refuses to sign off
-Nate left with 2 options: Sign for less (with a new manager) or go fight somewhere else.

Does any of that sound implausible?

Harmon Whistler -
ChokeEmOut - No way in hell his purse is fully disclosed.

No kidding.. they could just put random shapes and symbols instead of numbers and it would mean the same thing - nothing.

I bet only a handful of people know what he makes, and it's probably better that way.

maybe that's what the "personal discussion" between nate and dana was about. Dana said it was a positive discussion, so perhaps he paid him extra in bonuses to make up the difference???

15K?!?! This has got to be a historic low for a guy coming off a title show and fighting in his second national broadcast in a row. Does anyone have the data handy on what he's made before?

don't forget that all ufc fighters also sign a "sub letter agreement undisclosed pay" as well, which is not reported to the public.

some fighters in the ufc do also get stipends which is not reported to the public.

also don't forget about sponsorship pay. all fighters make more money off sponsors than disclosed pay

DONT FORGET GUYS....

oh wait someone always posts that rubbish above when you see the pitiful money some fighters recieve

This! Sponsors are not paying anywhere near what this guy thinks.

I was shocked by a LOT of the salaries listed there must be some pissed off fighters after seeing this, Melendez making almost twice what the Champ does (and almost 3 times Cormier his Strikeforce HW counter-part coming over who is being hyped big time) seems ridiculous and Mir Making close to 4 times Cormier and twice the LW Champ also seems way too much for someone that is basically a gatekeeper

Well I respect Uncle Creepy enough to believe him when he speaks, and if he's anything but a pathological liar these really aren't even remotely indicative of a fighter's pay.

I still think 15K is uncomfortably low though, regardless of extra pay it's pretty fucked up his disclosed pay his lower than Francis, "decision thief," Carmont

She couldn't afford to buy furniture bud so I'm guessing she didn't get jack shit. You think the UFC wouldn't have plastered the story everywhere if she got enough $ to buy furniture or a house for her mom in Mexico?

Besides, you're the one assuming that she got extra money so unless you've got proof your full of it. Especially given Liz or the UFC habent even implied that she did.

Oh, yea, and the used pickup she bought after the fight came out of her fight purse - the UFC didn't buy it for her.

UFC is raping their athletes and hiding behind shills who shout out about secret bonuses. If that's how they wanna play it why do fighters get paid different amounts officially? Why not just pay them all a dollar and say the rest is in undisclosed?? Cos the amount is relevant cos that's all the get 95% of the time, that's why. Phone Post 3.0

Ask Uncle Creepy if the UFC is raping fighters and ask him if he thinks Liz only got 12k I bet his answersdont match yours

Fuck! this guys on to us... How did he know we're paid shills? Someone else at that meeting must've be a mole

Or listen to Malki Kawa on the MMA Hour today laughing at those who think what is disclosed is all fighters get.

But NIBYSN knows nobody gets anything but reported pay because the UFC isnt out plastering the news with stories about how they paid people more, lol.

the one good thing that will come of Floyd Mayweather Jr, the greatest pound for pound pugilist ever to put on gloves retiring... not hearing his purses cited in debates between retards about mma/ boxing incomes. did these retards ever take a fucking elemtary course in mathematics for christs sake? you cant compare the MAX of one data set, to the MIN or even MEAN of another. Never mind the fact that the aforementioned MAX is an extreme outlier relative to the mean, median, or even the 2nd largest of the set.
