Joe Lauzon Sounds Off On Fighter Pay: ‘I Couldn’t be happier’

July 22, 2013 12:13 pm by BJPENN.COM News

“We’re paid fighters, so getting in to the UFC doesn’t mean you’re gonna have this cushy job. You get paid based on how your performance goes. I’ve been very fortunate where I have had some great fights and I’ve been rewarded with some bonuses. I couldn’t be happier with the pay structure. It all comes down to people wanting to see you fight.”

In a recent interview with The Metro South Morning Show, top UFC lightweight, Joe Lauzon gave his take on the UFC’s pay structure.

Since joining the UFC in 2006, Joe has received 11 ‘Fight Night” bonuses, which is currently second highest next to Anderson Silva.
