    Some good fights for a payout of less than what Chuck probably gets to step into the octagon.

    Seeing these payouts kind of makes me sick. Dana quit ass raping these young fighters who bust their ass for the UFC while you keep lining your pockets. You pay Brock Lesnar a shit load of money to come to the UFC and he hasn't done shit in MMA. Give these fighters what they derserve!!!!

    i feel bad for the guy that only made $3K for the fight. it's probably like $300 for his roundtrip flight, another $2K for all of that unpaid apartment rent, and what about food, going out, etc? can't make a living.

    but some guys are just overpaid. corey miller sucks dick. and i personaly think nate diaz is just disrespectful, especially when he lost fair and square to diego sanchez.

    It's a shame what these young fighters get paid to put on a good show! 3k doesn't even cover the doctor bills.

    dude, 3K doesn't even cover the escort service!

    the MMA world is rediculous when it comes to salary..you would think with all the competition it would pay very resonable salaries at the least but instead fighters get jack shit…some senator or lawyer or unioun type of thing should get involved and do something ya know

    3K is basically the UFC screwing a new fighter just so that he can get a break in the UFC. But fighters can make that amount in a smaller venue like KOTC. The UFC is a worldwide venue and they should up the pay to the bottom. Like I've said before, if that fighter was good enough to make the card then they are good enough to get paid for that too.

    i agree. it's okay for a dude to get paid 3K for a fight in a little known venue, like WCFO. but come on, in the UFC? chuck is making at least 1/2 million if he wins a fight. cro cop made $300,000 just for losing his last fight. if the fighter was good enough to make the UFC or make the card in the first place, pay should be at least 10K. you could make more money working at mickey d's in one month rather than training for one month and fighting in MMA. according to dana, "fighters shouldnd't be worried about the money. they should want to fight because they want to."

    Yeah, Diaz getting good money and Dana hates his brother almost as much as Tito. Even when he won TUF, his post fight comments were bashing the show and he said he would never recommend that for any fighter because the house sucked so much. Then he shook Dana's hand right after. Funny as hell.
