I am asking, not saying this. I don't know, because I don't follow the business of MMA. But this is the impression I got when I briefly was into MMA.

If it like this, then this is no better than Bob Arum only doing business with a fighter who joins Top Rank, and isolating all other promotional companies from big events.

Also, for such a brutal sport, the fighter salaries are disgusting.


Overall Top Ten Earning Fighters in 2012
(data updated to UFC 150)

1 Rashad Evans* $ 710,000
2 Jon Jones $ 400,000
3 Forrest Griffin $ 350,000
4 Tito Ortiz $ 325,000
5 Jake Shields* $ 300,000
6 Vitor Belfort* $ 279,000
6 Anderson Silva $ 275,000
8 Michael Bisping $ 275,000
9 Fabricio Werdum* $ 265,000
10 Wanderlei Silva* $ 265,000

=3,444,000


Miguel Cotto's 2012 earnings: $15 Million dollars. Miguel Cotto, the 3rd most popular boxer in the US, this year made 4x and a half more than UFC's top 10 2012 earners, COMBINED.


Top career earners in the UFC, from UFC 46[2004]-Present.

1 Chuck Liddell* $4,320,000
2 Tito Ortiz* $4,075,000
3 Quinton Jackson* $3,240,000
4 Georges St-Pierre * $3,102,000
5 Randy Couture* $3,045,000
6 Brock Lesnar $2,825,000
7 Michael Bisping* $2,710,000
8 Rashad Evans* $2,697,000
9 Anderson Silva * $2,671,000
10 B.J. Penn * $2,650,000

31,335,000 million combined.

In 2012, against Miguel Cotto, Floyd Mayweather Jr earned $40million dollars. $9million more than the total amount that the top 10 earners of UFC combined, have earned in a span of 8 years.

Dating back from 2009, Miguel Cotto has made $40 million dollars to date. Almost $10 million more than the top 10 UFC earners combined have earned, dating back from 2004. Miguel Cotto is only the 3rd top earner in the US.
it's not ufc's salaries that are disgusting, it's boxing's.

Actually, at times, boxing reminds me more of the WWE than anything else. One good example would be Jameel McCline's dive today......... Or we could go back to the Rios-Abril confrontation and how Abril was conveniently there.

Don't get me wrong, I know there is entertainment and talent in boxing, hell I even follow the career of Moisés Fuentes, but the promotion and exposure is now almost zero worldwide.

In boxing now, you're either a superstar, or a non entity, its a shame.

Until all boxing falls under one umbrella the same way the UFC controls mixed martial arts it has no chance.

There is no excuse for shit like "tune up fights", the whole idea of that is preposterous (use a dictionary for that one Yanks). How can anyone justify a "tune-up"? The best should fight the best everytime.

The way to save boxing is to have some cunt with a load of dough create an organisation, all fighters under contract, and you either fight the best, or fuck off.

In other words, to save the sport I love, copy the UFC business model, or die a slow lingering death.
I'm watching Ward vs Dawson tonight.....what are you doing????
Seems alive to me.

while the very top figures can be outrageous at times, the bulk of the money should be going to the guys who are risking their lives. UFC makes tons of money and sure they "invest" back into the sport but there is plenty of money from the PPVs and sponsors where they could pay these guys a lot more.
