    The UFC reported only 20k, 12k, 14k, and 12k. I wonder where the other 242k came from. Looks like the UFC guys make a bit more than we think

    I got a facebook message from Joe Lauzon. He is putting a tshirt together to wear pre and post fight with 15 logos.


    That's just from a tshirt. Was he in any magazine ads or photo shoots that would have paid too? I wonder what bigger fighters pull in for tshirts and similar sponsors. Riggs was big in 2006.

    I meant it as an example for what could have possibly added to that 300k total. I'm sure there is money coming from all directions for some of the fighters out there.

    Well Dana has always said the fighters are "well paid" and we've heard of locker room bonuses that aren't disclosed.

    Honestly I don't understand why they aren't. Why doesn't he just tell us what they make?
     
  10. because then competitors know what to offer them if they want them to leave the UFC.


    Also, then Rampage will know how much Chuck was worth, so he can demand that much money after he beats him.

    i dont believe this, and if its true then good, it means every full time fighter in the ufc should make at LEAST 100k a year. At least.

    They were interviewing him on SDS, so i assume it was him. I didn't listen to it though today.

    He has obviously made his 50k by knowin some peeps. I'm not sayin, but you know 50k in tony montana bid'ness is big, almost as serious as the internet.


    Serious note, maybe commentating?
