I love Sonnen. Sad to see him lose, but Silva just had more experience. I think Sonnel will make a great movie villain someday. He's just got that mean ass look and demeanor. I know I'd hire him if I were producing a flick and needed a heavy.

Most champs and high profile fighters have this payment plan built into thier contracts
Ok, that makes sense, i was about to say 200k is nothing...3 million sounds about right

Fighters base pay still leaves alot to be desired, even with a champions ppv percentage bonus still seems pretty pathetic on the ufc's behalf. I know fighters get money from sponsors too, but it still is very little compared to other atheletes, hell when golfers and MLS players smallest contracts are paid more then 75% of all the fighters onstaff in the ufc then something needs to be done. When the UFC brings in an average of 50mil per ppv the fighters should be getting a little more compensation for thier work. I would be interested in where the ufc is spending the money if not on the stable of fighters that are the reasoning for the money to begin with.

woah woah woah UFC does not not bring in 50 Million from PPV. Closer to 20.

Also Anderson was reported to be making close to 8 million for the fight

Ufc 148 had over a million ppv buys on fight night alone at 50 bucks a pop that puts them well over 50 mil for the event on ppv buys not including the 9 mil they reported getting at the gate. Between base salary which was 200k, ppv percentage money and sponsors Anderson could have walked away with 8 million. But you will never know more then the 200k the ufc reports as the fighters base salary (thats what they report to the commision, not including bonuses) unless Anderson makes his finances public

the gate was 7 million I thought. You made it sound like the UFC routinely brings in 50 million when it's only once or twice a year
