    how much does it cost them to rent the place, broadcast etc. etc. etc.? It's pretty fucked up though that the fighters aren't getting more money

    Does anyone know if the "Live Gate" is after the arena gets their cut of the tickets? Or how does that work?

    chuck is underpaid, all the ufc champs are, but that's not even the big issue when you take a look at the nonames and c-level fighters pay. the ufc is supposed to be the mma monopoly of america and they pay this shit.

    Rob got 5 grand for that shitty fight? Crazyness. Would it be wrong of me to poke fun at him next time I see him at the gym?

    fucking 2 grand? jesus.... hope those guys have good sponsors.... so.. what i

    was thinking , for the "c level " fighters who are trying to come up and get

    to the next level, getting paid 2 feaking grand is absoulute crap, that means

    most of the fighters have to get a day job, and provided they have a job

    that lets them take month(s) off at a time, probably dont train as hard as

    they can/should for a fight, wich i would think make their performances not

    as good as they should be, and boy that sure is hard for some guys, i really

    feel for them, thats crap/

    when your a professional athlete, you should never be forced to take another job.
