No idea.



 



Then you have people believing this is what they really made, like Rumble, they are listing him as what a new fighter would make cause they dont have a recent payout cause he just entered the UFC but people are on here so dumb they will run with this and act like thats what he really got.



 



 

I wish people would not post mma-manifesto estimates here.
People use those figures as truths around here.

Fans of any sport are curious about what the best athletes make. MMA is no different. However, unlike the NFL, NBA, and MLB, the UFC does not release salary information.

So the best we have is estimates. If the UFC decided to release salary information, then we wouldn't have to look at estimates. I think everybody would prefer accurate numbers.

If people are not satisfied with estimates, then they can ignore them. But I think it gives us some insight to see that Jones is making an estimated $400k. For example, it shows us there's likely a considerable gap between the high-end boxers and the high-end fighters.

I'm more surprised by Teixeira's "estimated" pay... If this is true, how is that Castillo won more to show that the LHW contender? Phone Post 3.0

There is a difference between estimating and putting up bullshit. Thanks for showing us the difference.

 

What is the point of this post?

Like I said, if you think these estimates are inaccurate, its perfectly understandable if you ignore them. Personally, I don't take them too seriously.

But I will say that for the top earners, these numbers are roughly in sync with Forbes's lists of the best paid athletes. UFC fighters are not on any of those lists.

The best scenario would be for the UFC to simply release fighter pay information.

I'm not sure why estimates of fighter's pay offends you. Being so angry that you need to call me a "dipshit" makes it seem like you have some personal stake in all this.

Who in their right mind would "estimate" that Rumble is on an 8/8 deal? That is ridiculous.

Also there is no way Jones only makes $400k. That might be his base purse but he's obviously going to be making PPV points which will probably push him over $1m.

if i found these numbers to be completely inaccurate or fraudulent and was offended i would just release the real earnings so i didn't have to constantly deal w this negative shit.

unless of course the numbers are pretty similar. then id just call you a fucking goof that doesn't know how much they are really getting paid.

The Tiger Man - Rumble is way more than 8k since he's fought in the UFC before. Zuffa honors that even if you got cut and came back Phone Post 3.0
