Dana says he doesn’t like to give out real numbers, which is def. the truth cause i came on here and saw people saying things like i shoulda got paid more even though i lost but i headlined the card..i did, dana sent me an extra 25k right after the fight plus i got main event sponsor money haha

the UFC pays you to do your job, if you do it than you get paid good.. in my UFC debut i made over 80,000… thats a lot of money for a division half the MMA community didn’t know existed!!

i love all of you guys, most of you know my life story, i just wanted you to know that i get taken care of by the UFC real well, ESPECIALLY when it comes to $!

All i gotta do now is beat the crap out of someone and move forward and start making anderson moneyyy !!!!!!! :)

UGCTT 4 LIFE! gotta head out but the shirts should be coming tomorrow so ill be signing them all for ya!

  2. YeahRightMan says:

    Lol. That’s pretty good for a losing fly weight I reck

  3. Josh Deloit says:

    Ian McCall seems like a nice and cool dude. a normal human being outside the ring, but a beast inside….

    check out his funny interview on Anderson vs Sonnen..

  4. stephen riddle says:

    Im set to make a cool 20k this year and someone would complain about making fighter pay? Lmao

  5. Paul Harris says:

    He CHOSE to be an MMA fighter. A short-lasting career choice. No one MADE him become an MMA fighter. He signs the contracts, he fights the contracts. If anything NCAA athletes are being robbed more than these guys.

    • B-rad says:

      Yeah a free education that in some places worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.. to play soccer????? yeahh Even guys like GSP and Anderson make about as much as a 2nd string QB in the NFL.. Drew Brees just signed his deal worth 20 mil a year.. The Spider has made maybe half that in his career -___-

    • WrestlingRules says:

      VERY TRUE, especially the football and basketball programs. The top schools make multi-millions per year off the backs of these athletes. The colleges and the NCAA are taking serious advantage of these athletes and they need to be paid.

  6. Kjtrlt says:

    I think I’d have just kept my mouth shut. Who cares what the fans know about pay. If it wasn’t worth it, they wouldn’t do it.

  7. stephen riddle says:

    I would get knocked out for their pay for sure!

  8. CombatRusse says:

    Thank’s to McCall for his honesty
