$7,000

If you do the calculation, I wonder how much Dana White makes per fight

$7,000 is down right disgusting

I wonder why UFC fighters get paid so little, with all the physical damage they aquire, that money is chump change. Most Boxing Gate Keepers get more than what UFC main eventers get.

If he fights 4x's a year that would be $28,000 guarunteed and $56,000 after bonuses. How does he survive while also paying for the necessary training?????

Forrrest Griffin made 12,000, woow. He also won the winners bonus that no one expected him to get , and made a total of 24,000.

White is so damn cheap, it is shame he has a monopoly over American mma. Even assume it was a very weak PPV, as sometimes the UFC gets over 1 million PPV buys! Say that UFC 76 got 400,000 buys at 49.95, that is about 20 million dollars, plus millions from the live gate. And White pays his fighters this shit!

Heroes pay there mainstays more than this drivel. Welcome to the monopoly of MMA.. These are some of the wonderful benefits that go with the UFC consolidating every org in site.

Forrest made 40k for sub of the night, probably much more than that in other non purse contract money.

The fighters make more than their fight purse, how many times does this need to be said? Some sources list Jardines actual take home pay closer to 100k.

I've got no idea, just message board material, not sure how true it is.

But I do know that forrest made a bare minimum of $64k. Fighters make more money than their fight purses or even the sub/ko/fight of the night bonuses, I thought this was pretty well accepted by now.

No, the article says his purse was 7 + 7, I believe that was the contracted fight purse. I have no doubt he gets other money from Zuffa than fight purses.
