    BONUSES

    Griffin and Tavares Earn $40,000 “Fight of the Night” UFC 76 Bonuses

    Posted by MMA Junkie on September 25, 2007 at 4:14 pm ET
    [​IMG]Tyson Griffin and Thiago Tavares, two UFC lightweights who fought in the first televised bout at UFC 76 this past weekend, were awarded $40,000 each as “Fight of the Night” bonus recipients. In a fast-paced bout, Griffin scored a unanimous-decision victory to deliver Tavares the first loss of his career.
    Additionally, Forrest Griffin, who scored a third-round victory (rear-naked choke) of Mauricio Rua, earned $40,000 “Submission of the Night Bonus” for his upset victory.
    The bonuses were announced during a post-UFC 76 press conference.
    UFC 76 took place at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. and aired via pay-per-view. Keith Jardine scored a split-decision victory over Chuck Liddell in the night’s main event.
    The UFC traditionally awards an additional “Knockout of the Night” bonus, but in an event ironically dubbed “Knockout,” none happened. All nine fights finished via submission or decision.
    The bonuses, which paid just $10,000 just a year ago, have gone from $25,000 to $30,000 to the current $40,000 level.

    ufc fighters need to realize they are being paid chump change compared to what they should be getting paid at their level of professionalism.


    that 14k // 500K is a perfect example

    yes he is not as recognized and decorated as chuck but that doesn't excuse the fact that he IS fighting in the main card and he IS fighting a former champion which means he should be considered somewhere around his level of expertise to have gotten the fight in the first place.

    His performance will raise his marketability (not that Jardine has much :mamoru:) and he'll start getting paid appropriately soon enough. Either that or Chuck will start getting paid appropriately soon :hsugh:

    The fucking bonuses (40 grand each) is worth more then what 70% of fighters are getting to fight.

    although i agree, i don't know what the deal is with forrest. I dunno why people like him so much, personally I think he tries too hard to be funny but he just sounds like he has rocks in mouth when he speaks.

    I don't see an issue with that... the fighters should have a good reason to win in exciting/dominant fashion, rather than being able to make the same money being boring and grinding a decision

    I think pay does represent how marketable you are for now, and in the future. Also, some fighters just have shitty contracts.

    Everyone always bitches about what Tito gets paid. He fought with White until he got what he has now, more guys with some leverage need to do it as well.
