When you have James Toney in your top 10 for the YEAR, and Micheal Bisping at number 2 there's a MASSIVE problem with remuneration in the UFC. Look at the sums of money earnt for the year by those from roughly 100 down. These are salary's you'd pick up for regular day to day jobs.

Ok those are old and its accuracy cant truly be validated. But it does show the clear disparity in pay between boxing and MMA. You have to ask yourself if the only avenue to make money is now via the UFC in the West why bother when your average salary is less than $35K? Thats approximately 20K in GBP. Which is substantially less then our average salary nationally.

Not bad considering a lot of those fighters only fought 2-3 times last year. Everybody who made 20,000 plus got a good pay IMO.

I know he was fighting Tyson and that = $$$. But I still find it shocking that Bruce Seldon earned in 1 fight more than the top 5 UFC fighters did combined in a year. But no doubt some will post 'Well with sponsors blah blah' which the UFC also take a cut of or has that changed?

Anyone have any idea of how much the UFC made last year?

Anyone have any idea of how much the UFC made last year?
They made $500m in PPV revenue for 2010 alone. What their Profit & Loss is compared to their operating revenue is i don't know. But either way that's a massive total considering their fighters make very nominal sums.

Its difficult to guess what fraction of that goes to the fighters though. But its very safe to say its not remotely close to the percentages you see in MLB NFL NBA etc which are all 50% and above. The Collective Bargaining Agreements of those leagues ensure players are guaranteed a percentage of the revenue. The UFC has nothing close to this and obviously wont push for it either.

EDIT: just found this article from Heath Herring which confirms just what i said:

No health insurance! I bet in the states for a pro fighter that is a big chunk of change.

OK Gsp made $900k plus 1 million (generously) in sponsorship and appearances. thats close to two million, expenses and taxes around 50%. Give or take 1 million net.

Hes doing quite well.

He's no pauper, but $900000 as the face of the UFC?

These figures are almost meaningless. No accounting for the PPV points that most established main eventers recieve and the extra-contractural bonuses that all fighters recieve. Nor is their any accounting for any additional payments Zuffa has made for fighters taking part in publicity events or series like TUF.

He made a lot more than that.

Put it this way Lesnar's official figure for last year was $400,000 per base pay. But pretty much every reporter says the real figure is $3million once ppv points are included.

Irrelevant. You dont know how much he made for them as much as I do. Perhaps they are contractual obligations and covered in his base wage for a fight?. How much of a PPV cut dose he get exactly?

Problem is these are only guestimates. There's no true accurate figure. The figures posted though do act though as somewhat of a barometer that do indicate positively a large disparity between the UFC's revenue and what the fighters make. Fundamentally bonus's are just that. The UFC is under no obligation to disclose the true sums fighters make. But their base salarys nonetheless are appalling whichever way you want to spin it.
