    the good thing is that because they're televised for free, i'm sure fighters get more/bigger sponsors

    Oh I agree with that, i thought you meant the WEC doesnt have the sponserships
     
  12. If you're headlining an event on cable tv you should get more than 5 grand if you're expected to train professionally for 3-4 months in preparation.

    Especially if you're going to get your face blown up. (multiple blowout fractures)
