How much do MMA fighters make ?

How much do MMA fighters make for their first fights?

how much do pro boxers make? I mean the bottom feeders.

People usually fight amateur first and dont make anything. When they turn pro, they are lucky to get a couple hundred bucks for their first few pro fights. Heavyweights or guys with gimmicks can make more.

I have heard that the starting contract with the UFC is $2000 to show up and $2000 to win. Not very much, IMHO!
