    I wouldn't mind getting paid 2 g's to fight. Do all of these fighters get paid for advertising and stuff?

    depends on the amount of training that goes in... full time training and 2k to fight is a joke.

    I suprised that Chuck and Randy's salaries are so similar after accounting for the win bonuses. The bonuses are typically equal to the fighters pay for that fight so Chuck must still be working off that last shitty contract he signed (similar situation to Matt Hughes, who is vastly underpaid, UFC should be embarassed by how little they pay Hughes)

    They just wanted a bunch of people to watch and it to be a good clean fight. They didn't need any monetary motivation, the motivation was already there in the hype, rivalry, fans, etc...

    ~ $670k is not a lot to be paying these people especially considering how huge UFC has become. Dana White is a scumbag.
