i haven't seen anything on fighter pay yet on the news sites but the fight bonuses are out.
from fightline.com

Wanderlei Silva, Rousimar Palhares, Goran Reljic and Wilson Gouveia are all $75,000 dollars richer after receiving performance bonuses at UFC 84.
Silva was awarded the "Knockout of the Night" for his impressive first-round knockout of Keith Jardine. Rousimar Palhares deftly applied an armbar against fellow brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner Ivan Salaverry to earn "Submission of the Night" honers, and Goran Reljic defeated Wilson Gouveia in a rousing effort by both men to secure the "Fight of the Night."

One of the things Kalib Starnes was *****ing about was the lack of medical assistance from the UFC.

If its true that Jardine really only earned 10,000 thats ****ed considering his recent wins.

Seriously it's a disgrace that Jardine received such a low figure considering what the PPVs are for UFC.

10k to risk your life against Wanderlei and 7k against Chuck!?

Imagine the margin UFC makes on every big event.

While he is underpaid dont forget that he is sponsered, so with sponsership money and ufc money he surely made at least 20-30k for 36 seconds of work. Sure he got whooped but i'm sure he doesnt have a serious injury

YUHHHHHHH!

UFC is bringing in millions per PPV. Let's say for the sake of it, that there's 10 fights per card (Rarely). Not to mention merchandise and accommodation sales.

Do the math, everyone besides Top 5 fighters in the UFC are making crap. Please bring PRIDE back.
