UFC 72 weren’t available since there’s no governing body/commission in Northern Ireland. It’s a problem we’ll run into with overseas events.
You can find UFC 71 salaries here: http://ufcjunkie.com/2007/05/29/off...ies-paydays-for-jackson-liddell-karo-burkman/ (We didn’t categorize them in the right place, so you may have missed them.)
That's true, I just think the UFC contract makers should start negotiations at a $10,000 minimum. It just sucks that fighters don't have good alternatives anymore so they will take low contracts to fight in the UFC. That's one drawback to the UFC buying everything.
do you guys have any idea how little boxers get for undercards? Fact is a lot of these guys dont make the UFC any money, they dont draw in $10k worth of fans. They dont draw shit. Fact is, $3k isnt much money, but when you are training part time its not a bad amount of money for getting punched in the face a few times.
3k to see if you are worth bringing back is not bad. Put in a good showing and your moneys will go up. Got to start somewhere. Hell I would go get knocked the fuck out for 10,000, I am sure a lot of people would.
I can't believe what they pay Tito, thats pretty high!!!
He was the poster boy for the UFC for years.. and his contract reflects that.
yeah but alot of those events pay crap. when king of the cage was in miami back in 2003 my freind fought on the card and won and only got 600 bucks
hmm...i couldnt' find the salary breakdown either...
