10k/10k is the highest minimum pay level out of all mma organizations, but for some reasom people only want to bitch about the ufc pay level and not any other. Bellator has paid fighters 1.5k/1.5k which is ridiculous yet nobody on here says a word about that. Now wi come the obligatory "well the ufc is the biggest organization, blah blah blah" excuse makers.
Well, Dana didn’t call bellator the Super Bowl of MMA. He doesn’t continually say bellator is the biggest sport in the world. He does about ufc though.
Maybe he should pay like it then.
$10k to show, lose, and end up netting about $5k after taxes, paying managers, etc... in the “SuperBowl” of mma for 3 months of work is ludicrous.
There we go, the famous "superbowl of mma" line that gets thrown out when this comes up butnill play along. The ufc pays more than any other organization so by your logic they are the superbowl of mma. If not then who is? If 5k after taxes is ridiculous them what do you think about 1.5k/1.5k? Why do you ignore that point? When it comes to change you dont start at the top. You start at the bottom and work upwards, but with guys like you it's not about really changing fighter pay. It's just about hating on dana white which does nothing. Why do you give every other organization a pass????
I didn’t say it’s the super bowl of mma. Dana did, the guy you’re so vigorously defending. And I don’t hate him at all. Met him several times through mutual friends when I lived in Vegas. Super personable guy.
And if you don’t understand why the ufc should pay way more than bellator, or the nfl should pay more than arena league, or why mlb should pay more than single A, I’m not sure what to tell you.
Bringing up the supergirl of mma line is silly. That was just a comment he made, not the official zigga mission statement. If you insist on taking it literally then maybe you should realize ilthenolayers get the same paycheck for the superbowl as they do for regular season and playoff games. There is a BONUS of 67k for players on the winning team and 34k for the losing team. That is nothing compared to their salaries. So everytime you talk about superbowl of mma, it has nothing to do with getting paid more. You really should quit trying to twist things around by taking a throwaway line so literally.
"And if you don’t understand why the ufc should pay way more than bellator, or the nfl should pay more than arena league, or why mlb should pay more than single A, I’m not sure what to tell you"
They already do pay much more. In the last heavyweight title match Bader and Kongo each made $100,000 flat while Stipe made $750,000 and Cormier made $500,000. You should try looking at the actual numbers instead of rambling about superbowls, but if you can't understand that then I dont know what to tell you
Again you don’t seem to understand revenue.
And should probably take a break from this thread, as personally as you’re taking it. You don’t seem emotionally quipped to cope with this topic. It shouldn’t make you this angry. Don’t take mma.tv so seriously
