  1. Even the UFC is disrespecting Silva , no win bonus.

  2. wtfUFC says:

    I can’t believe you can actually make more money for losing, WTF UFC.

  3. Nick says:

    I am so sick of people bitching about the pay in UFC. What you morons do not seem to understand is the each fighter’s pay is negotiated separately. Its not like the all powerful ufc gods decide let’s overpay this guy and underpay that guy, as if no one has any say. Every single amount you’re seeing was negotiated with the fighter (or agent) and the ufc.. and the fighter AGREED to the contract. If you notice, the FANS are what determines the pay essentially.. because if they are a more exciting fighter and bigger PPV draw, they get paid more.. regardless of fighting rank or talent. If someone doesn’t like their pay it is up to them to negotiate a better contract and/or become a more marketable fighter. No one in any business is just going to give away money if they don’t have to. It’s a business…

    • Dan Jenkins says:

      Yeah yeah yeah it’s a business my heart bleeds for dana and company they must be doing it rough times are tough right! Bigfoot should have got his win bonus EVERYONE gets a win bonus I’ve never seen anyone not get one had overeem won guaranteed he would of got his win bonus the ko of the night Bigfoot deserved because NO ONE thought he’d win that. Also guaranteed will be if Ronda wins she gets a ****ing win bonus

  4. GRT 3000 says:

    the most pay and the most boring ass fight I’ve ever seen; go get em’ Rashad.

  5. Sasquatch says:

    Playing paddycake pays good!

  6. JayCee says:

    Rampage was making the same money Reem and Rashad was making and HE feels disrespected? At least everyone on the card had the heart to train and take their fights serious.

  7. John says:

    Probably already stated but this is not all the money these fighters make. There is a ton of undisclosed money given to these fighters. You’d have to be dumb to think Jose Aldo would be ok with getting paid less than Rashad

  8. nate says:

    Rashad Jus needs to retire. He got paid to get his ass kicked. U really think u have a chance against Jon Jones. U will DEFINATELY get Ur ass beat.

  9. Norman says:

    Ian McCall: $9,000 ?

    After paying his camp, gas on a car (if he has one) he probably is paying to fight in the UFC.

  10. jonah says:

    Wow! 300k for rashad?!! His fights have been boring as of late. It must have been already in his contract the 300k minimum.

  11. Earl says:

    Ian McCall only got $9000 damn….

    • Jujitsu Player says:

      I was just thinking that…and you can’t tell me he got a good taste of the PPV revenues because that’s BS…Dana likes people to believe that they are all millionaires but the fact is the UFC is sticking is to the lower ranked and up-and-coming guys…

  12. Earl says:

    Ian McCall only got $9000 damn…

  13. What? says:

    after that piss poor performance ian and rashaad should which checks cause that fight was better than most of the paper view other than reem getting ko by bigfoot and aldo having fun punching frankie the ” i feel cheated ” edger in the face the ppv was ok i give it to bigfoot for most exciting fight cause that ko was crazy then give it to the flyweights cause they fought the whole time everything else was….meh

  14. The Big Lou says:

    Wow, UFC don’t pay shit to lower card fights and fighters…even to some card fighters! $300k for a chump performance from Evans? It’s obvious that he’s only fighting for a payday not necessarily to compete. The gate was near 2.5 mil, the payroll total was about 1.7 mil, what did the UFC make on the PPV? It must stuck to only get paid $8k to get punched, kicked, possibly turned into a pretzel and then have to pay out the hospital bills, the training fees, coach fees, blah blah blah. How much money do you have left to train? Can’t be much…

  15. Rick James Bioch says:

    Folks need to chill out… These numbers are just their base salary from just showing up and/or winning. This doesn’t include their PPV cut! Rampage has made about 15+ million since joining the UFC and I dont believe that includes any endorsement deals outside the UFC so feel too bad for any fighters on the main card.

    Bottom line is if their wasn’t any $$$ in fighting or the UFC these fighters would be doing something else.

    • Jujitsu Player says:

      Do you really think Ian McCall is making decent PPV money? If you do your crazy, only the top guys are making decent PPV money. I agree the top guys make big money but the lower guys are getting raped by the UFC

  16. Vicenzo says:

    The ufc need to pay their fighters more, they make so much money for each event, and they cant even pay the fighters properly. They train hard for months and get such a shitty pay. Boxers get paid way more and their events dont bring in as much profit as the ufc events do.

  17. 123 says:

    wow he should swap cheques with bigfoot.. or any1 who was actually exciting because that was the worst fight iv ever seen
