Yeah, I bet Dana White would like that. The guy is worse than Stalin , dont do it Fedor.

White likes to exploit his fighters . The UFC will get better PPV numbers then a Boxing PPV , but the boxers will make 5 million + easy , and maybe the MMA fighters will get One Mill even.

5 million +? Dude less then 1% of all boxers make more then 5 million +. As a matter of fact very few boxers actualy makes a million. The same small handfull of guys makes the million while the rest don't.

As for getting exploited, boxing itself has a lot of exploits ( promotors ).

Neither one is perfect but Fedor has to dance with the devil cause he holds all the card.

I am talking about Main Event PPV fighters! The headline bout! Floyd and Oscar made what 20 million each? A UFC PPV can have about the same number of PPV buys as Floyd vs Oscar, and the UFC fighters will still only make 1 , or 2 million each! The rest goes in White's pocket.

im sure if fedor signs with the ufc he will have a sweet deal. He is in a position where he can negotiate a real good deal considering he can easily get good money at bodog. The ufc will have to pay him more to get him.

Fedor needs to prove nothing. It's on UFC to blow him away with an offer, because nobody acknowledges the UFC Heavyweight champ as being "the man". Fedor's the 800 pound gorilla that everyone knows about but UFC doesn't have. I say he should take every penny he can get, be it from Bodog or UFC.

Dana White will be the death of MMA. Its one thing to be smart, but this fukker is greedy. Say what you will about boxing, a boxers always has options. the mma is turning into you do what Dana wants you to do or you dont fight, or get paid. Just ask Tito Ortiz he'll tell you. Dana is known to only pay the talent about 15% of the money that is made from the events. Thats ALL the fighters. I have watched the UFC since the very first event they ever had, and in recent years I have stopped watching. I dont like the way that Dana brought the thing and has every since been so willing to bend and change the whole damn thing. Its billed as Ultimate FIGHTING and now its far from that. It gives you the appearance of no holds barred fighting but it isnt and it hasnt been for a long time. Under White UFC and MMA will be alike a comet.

dana with all the cards will be a terrible thing, if you don't have the 'look' or 'style' it won't matter how good you are, you won't be in ufc and your career will be stagnant. ask matt lindland.

Under Dana white the sport has exploded form a business that was almost under. He may be shrewd to alot of the fighters, but if you make him money, he treats you good. He's brought us a unification fight plus bringing all the best fighters under 1 org. He's getting evry big fight he possibly can.So why are you so conserned what the fighters make? it's really none of your business and doesn't effect you...does it?

Are you that dense??? The WWF is a perfect model for what is going to happen to the UFC. The difference is the WWF/WWE has 100 years of history behind them and it got them over tough times. Look when Vince took over WWE it was horrible, ala UFC. He did away with the comp, ala White, Vince started to stiff the talent ala White, they all started to leave, as they will in the UFC. If you were a fan of the sport you would be outraged by the fact that White is following the very path that Vince took, but as I said UFC doesnt have the history behind it, so the second that the ratings start to fall the TV will dry up.

WWF is fake, UFC is real.

UFC pays better than any other org. Marcus Davis, a mid carder took home $100,000+ for his fight at 75, and that doesn't include signing bonuses or other non fight related bonuses.
