I've said it before in my 20s I would have taken a beating for a years salary of course rare long term injury aside its easy money.
Now got family dont relish putting them through the anxiety.
Point is are figthers being paid "Enough" I say yes deduct what their crooked managers take which we dont see.
I don't want to see Mma fighters turn into the privileged bastards that are in football, basketball and may soccer.
We already see Jones skate past years of jail time and do nothing but ***** that he is not making 100 million.
you sign a contract live up to it or pay the price UFC pretty good at suing dumb asses.

It's difficult to know how fair these payscales are without seeing the nuts and bolts of UFC overheads.

People tend to think that the margins on big business is massive, but this is rarely ever the case. On construction projects costed in the hundreds of millions, the margin of return is usually between 4-5%. That might bump up to 6-7% if everything goes according to plan, which it very rarely does.

I think they need to pay fighter like Geoff Neal more because good fighter like him shouldn't be working a second job he should be spending the time training.

It's a difficult balancing act. The promotions need to pay their fighters enough so that the fighters can cover their expenses and have a decent bit on top so that it's profitable for them and worth their while. At the same time if a fighter gets too rich then they often lose their motivation which is bad for them, the promotions and most importantly, their fans.

Gotta admit I was a little shocked that blaydes made less then miller. Paige Vanzant has been getting 46,000 / 46,000 ******* ridiculous!!!.

Seriously pisses me off! Vanzant is a free agent after this next fight. I guarantee she gets 100,000 easy and that's well deserved. Cutie who sometimes knocks chicks out with flying switch kicks. Always exciting fights. Never a boring hug fest! 

Give fighters their due dana you cheapskate ****.

Paige is much less talented than most elite WSW fighters, and she isn't even that cute, imo.

@ Ian I had to work out what you were talking about, I'm guessing that guy was talking about payscales or something. I only watch JRE if it's someone like Musk / Alex Jones ranting after a sack of charlie is on. I don't watch the episodes that have AJ's and people who have supposedly unlocked the secrets of the universe by drinking ayahuasca and having group jungle sex or whatever. I gave Joe a shot until he credulously entertained the possibility that Bigfoot actually exists. That was when I realized he was just a run-of-the-mil stoner.

Regardless, it would be interesting to see what the margins are.  I'd be pretty ******* surprised if ranked pro female  boxers were making Pennington money though.

Ufc don't care if u can fight. Remember cm punk?
Ufc only cares that you sell tickets ppv and merch.
I guarantee Paige does all those more than most fighters on the roster do. O'Malley makes the same ****** money Vanzant does. Ufc pay structure is a joke. O'Malley made $5000 on his reebok sponsorship. Dana white is a **** sucking *******. He is a modern day slaver.

Its the last fight on your contract and your trying to negotiate more money paige? Hold up, now you are going to get a horrible matchup and your front teeth knocked in. Now the leverage has shifted. Joe Silva might be gone but the savagery continues

HW's are overpaid IMO. The fight that Blaydes just put on wasn't worth 180K. It wasn't worth 180 Weimar-Era Papiermark.

Vanzant actually said She's looking forward to testing out free agency to find out what she's really worth.

@fish i completly disagree. Paige is more a teen **** or young/old category of ****. Milf is for more of a Cat Zangano
