I am curious as to how the pay is structured for the co-main and main event fighters.
Do fighters have contracts on the lower level that still have ppv stipulations if they ever have to main event?
Is Robbie and Rory losing money by having Co-Main event status instead of Main event?
Are they benefiting and getting more money by being co-main but being on a ppv that is exected to have very high numbers?
How do fighters negotiate stuff like this? Do they have bargaining power?
Do fighters get to negotiate their ppv part of their contracts before they are announced to headline a ppv card, or is this done beforehand and whatever stipulations they sign on, it's UFC's disgression as to who main events and who co-main events?
Basically I am mad at Ariel Helwani for not stirring shit up like he's always accused of doing! McGregor has been boasting how it's the Conor McGregor show and I find that offensive to proven fighters, proven BIGGER fighters who could kick Conor's ass. I wanted Ariel to ask Robbie/Rory if their ppv pay was affected by being co-main.
