Where is all the money in MMA going if not to the fighters?

The PPV figures have been massive over the last few years, so what's happening.

There may well be an explanation, but I don't understand the economics of it compared to boxing....

The explanation is, Zuffa is a private company. They don't release actual PPV figures like WWE and Boxing HAVE to do. Cable Companies don't release figures either. Cotto in one fight made 4million dollars more than Brock did in 2, and considering how in both fights Brock did near 1.2million buys for each, how is that even possible? Brock gets paid 3$+ for every PPV buy. So how exactly does he only make 5mill?

They waste all their money buying out the competition rather then paying their fighters.

Giant profit margins. That's how.

Even PPV's that do pathetic numbers are profitable for the UFC. It's pretty crazy.

So the concensus is that the fighters are getting ripped off?

Surely this will only get worse for them as Zuffa continues to buy out all competition, further monoplising the sport and taking away the fighters power to negotiate

I wish some crazy billionaire would set up a rival organisation and create some big competition for the UFC/Strikeforce set ups.

Honestly it's the guys behind zuffa who get the biggest piece of the pie, they underpay fighters way too much. They are trying to milk it as much as they can before they have to start paying more.

****, im sure even Dana White would like a raise for himself, he's just their puppet who shows his face on tv, funny guy though.


All fighters are getting caged into this. They should be fighting for atleast what boxers do, maybe they should do more considering the growing popularity of mma in america.
