    Karo only on 8k after 5 or 6 wins in the UFC :ugh:

    Unless they are paying them under the table ala K-1 i can't see how they can justify such shit wages.

    Oh yeah, i've seen these wages a few weeks ago on the internet. Apparently they don't show the win bonuses (because the event took place in California so the commission is different) and Tito is rumored to have gotten a cut of the PPV revenues. So the actual wages are supposed to be higher.

    I watched to see Arlovski.

    I now take back my statements that Ice Hockey players are the most underpaid.

    that may be true, but Tito isn't being paid to fight for 15 minutes only. He also is being paid to train and be prepared for those 15 minutes of fighting.

    you are conveniently ignoring the 3 months of training that he has to put in for preperation for the fight.

    besides the titos and AA's that are making a living off of fighting, most others have to get 2nd/3rd jobs. diaz lives at home still i think

    hockey players need an entire team to pull in a crowd, so their pay is somewhat spread out over the entire team. MMA fights can pull crowds because of individuals. not saying that hockey players aren't underpaid, it's just that it's hard to parallel them exactly

    MMA is going to do better and better as boxing fans convert in the next few years. Boxing is, as most of you guys know, is taking a huge hit and on a downward spiral.

    In the NHL, there is a minimum on how much you make. I think it may be around 450,000. I'm not too sure.

    But the reason why the average is 1.8 million is because you have players like Jagr, Niedermayer, and Thornton who are getting paid close to 7 mil.

    Then you have players who are workhorses getting paid $500,000.

    Their salary is almost always directly related to their stats though. In MMA you could be a winner and still get dropped like how the UFC let Matt Lindland go. You have to not just win but be exciting and able to draw crowds.

    Not really, take this for example.

    First year entry into the NHL for a rookie is capped around 850,000.

    Take Crosby for example. He scored 102 points this season. But his bonuses will raise that up quite a bit. 850,000 for him would definitely be underpaying the guy.

    If you shop around the free agency market during July, you'd be able to find a 60 point scorer for a million if you're lucky. eg. Carter
    Another would be the Sedins. 1.25 million for two +70 point scorers. You can take someone like Lecavalier who's getting paid 6 mil and only got 75 points this year. Although I won't take nothing away from Lecavalier's 03-04 cup ring. That probably has a lot to do with it.

    But for the most part, salary is related directly to performance. Just don't forget that there are several players who are way overpaid and a ton who are underpaid.
