CindyO - They should give bonuses to all if the fighters on the card... Just because they can:)

UFC technically could also no? Phone Post 3.0
They do, unless a fighter absolutely sucked. Zuffa invented paying fighters more than their contracted amount on a regular basis, son.

Cindy Phone Post 3.0

that's because their contracted amount is a joke compared to the revenue they bring in.

nobody is buying a UFC PPV to watch Dana Whit's management skills. we're buying it to see the fighters fight. why would any athlete get into mma when they could get into boxing and be treated far better?

It's crazy that the fighters only get paid marginally better now than they did ten years ago.

They're talking about floyd making 100 million dollars for a fight! One of the biggest reasons is that he's promoting himself.

why do people who have no knowledge of boxing argue about boxing? oh wait, i know why.

furthermore, this whole boxing vs mma feud is generally one huge publicity stunt. and it keeps fans of both sports yammering and yelling back and forth at one another.

what mayweather did in that ring the other night was masterful. if you don't like it, you either aren't a fan of technical boxing or you simply don't "get it".

if the latter is the case, then don't act like you do.

Lex_o - Canelo is hardly getting any love for the amount of people he brought to the fights. He's the reason so many people watched. Phone Post 3.0
Exactly. Although Floyd is the top PPV draw. Canelo also has a strong following. Phone Post

PPV wise or pay? SHO & HBO only do about 4 to 6 ppvs a year between them and besides Mayweather the only other fighter to regularly do over 1 mil in the US is Manny. His last fight did like 1.1 mil in sales. the other shows seem to sell between 200K-600k,

Purse wise, Mayweather makes the most. His new SHO deal guarantees at least 32 mil a fight (this fight was special and guaranteed $41 mil). Manny's guarantee is $22 mil and he made around $30 mil on his last fight, Other recent big purses are Canelo who got at least $12 mil (probaly closer to $20 mil), Chavez Jr at $3 mil plus ppv points, Martinez $1.4 mil plus ppv, Miguel Cotto who gets over $1 mil per fight (he made around $10 mil when he fought Mayweather and Margarito) Juan Manuel Márquez who got $6 mil plus his last fight, and coming up Wlad Klitschko $17 mil next month, Povetkin $7 mil, Fury $7.5 mil, and Haye $7.5 mil,

it seems like boxing is doing pretty well.  what's all the fuss about boxing is dying?  where do they generate all this money to pay all the fighters?  Their pay per view is more expensive? Their gate cost more?  break it down barney style please..

Great payday for boxing. Good to see. I don't get this whole MMA vs. Boxing shit. They're different sports. They can both flourish.

In boxing the promoter doesn't keep 90% of the revenue, the fighters do.

Floyd knows that there's at least 2 million people that would pay good money to see him get his face punched in. Phone Post 3.0

Are the demographics released? Was it largely due to hispanics , because if so Cain might be a big draw
