Yea, it's a good thing. There is twist though. It covers only the injuries that accured in fight ONLY. So, it doesn't work like health insurance, if you get hurt in training its your own problem.

The health bill per card would probably run them 150k on average.

I don't think cut would really require plastic surgeon...

Its not for cosmetics but to ensure the scare (or the tissue beside the cut) does not create a potential source of future cuts

They do it this way because it hides their financial capabilities from other orgs that will try to bargain away their fighters. All you ****ing business wizards should just stroll down to Zuffa and try running the UFC and we'll see where you get.
,

Your an idiot If that was the case, the IRS will be in their asses..What the **** are you talking about handing money in an envelope and they're letting the world know about it. . Yo Taxman, just got me under the table money $250k go and find me...stupid! And why the hell will they hide how much they pay their fighters

They get paid the purse and maybe their expenses. Now a car here or there yes but $250k in an envelope? To Babalu who is about to starve hes begging for a job? Remember Hermes Franca...He was such in financial difficulty he had to stop fighting and tend his gym in FLA.

What are you talking about??

The money is still reported to the IRS, just not the Athletic commisions, who have no reason to be told of it unless it is part of a contracted fight purse.

The fact that Chuck Liddell got away with his open, wide punching stye is not a ringing endorsement of the skill level of his opponents. In a boxing ring that style would be exposed very quickly. I am glad he got exposed as being very one dimensional

Damn, I actually kinda feel sorry for Jardine and Forrest, thats so little money for what they go through, if they got payed more then the physical damage would be easier to stomach.

New orgs are coming into existence - Elite X, Cage Rage, all this new bollocks.

Eventually MMA will go down the same road as boxing and boxers. Wait till they are multi millionaires and start avoiding fights.

Dana White has the most impressive submissions in the game. I've personally seen him choke the purse out of every single fighter to enter the octagon. It's actually quite impressive. It's amazing how much you'll sacrifice for fame.
