They care enough about fighters, pay them more.
When has it been better? You're moaning that pay "sucks", well, the inference is that it used to be better. When was the time when it was more realistic to make a living out of professional MMA than it is now?

Who has ever done more for the sport than these casino guys? Honestly?

And which MMA people DO or DID care about the sport, and promoted events without regard for profiting themselves, and did everything just out of the goodness of their hearts?

For people who didn't know or care about the sport, they sure sank an assload of money into a failing company over an extended period of time before they saw anything back.

Can you name a company in MMA history that has taken better care of its fighters? That has made more fighters into millionaires? The UFC will pay their medical expenses for training and fighting injuries. Which other MMA company paid its fighters more or took better care of their health?
