Ramy Daoud - Art Jimmerson made more in UFC 1 than some prelim fighters make today Phone Post 3.0

That's incredible. UFC 163, and UFC 1 fighters get paid more. Great business model, shitty as hell for the fighters.

 

I like how the article ends

 

DAVIE: Three years ago, I was driving down Sunset Boulevard in L.A. I hadn't paid attention to the UFC in a few years, and there was a giant wraparound ad on the side of an office building featuring [three-time UFC heavyweight champion] Randy Couture. I brought Randy in; he was my man. I had an enormous twinge. I felt like a divorced father whose kid is being raised by somebody else. Then the light changed, and I moved along.

Awesome article. VU OP.

ssj - awesome read

i lol'd @ the 10k art made at UFC1 and there are still fighters making less than that 160 UFc's later ..

Art made $20,000.

Hell,SEG even offered Art 20% of the company,but Art chose the 20,000 cash.
