Fighters react to CM Punks $500k UFC 203 payday

CM Punk

CM Punk cashed out big time for his debut fight in the UFC. Punk brought home $500,000 in disclosed pay, not including Reebok sponsorship money.

In contrast, his opponent Mickey Gall, who beat Punk by first round submission, took home an earnest $30,000 ($15k to show, $15k to win).

Many fighters took exception to Punk’s massive payday from UFC 203 last Saturday. and most took to Twitter to vent their frustrations with such pay disparity.
