If you ever look at the pay outs for fighters (its normally published shortly after fight night) they get a few thousand, a win bonus and may more if they drew a crowd.

No one will really get as much as Conor unless they fight him and then they will make shit loads (red panty day :lol: ). Regardless of how you feel about him he pulls the crowds, sells tickets and PPV's. So a lot of fighters want to fight him regardless of winning or not. Nate probably made more money on those two fights than he has total in UFC.

Of course if you are a 'name' like what happened with CM Punk you can make a shit ton. I posted a link to the pay outs for the UFC and he got like 500k and yer man who bet him ended up with like 20k. I am sure similar with lesnar, overeem etc.

The money from the Rebook payouts for 205 are below:

Quote:
The full UFC 205 UFC Athlete Outfitting payouts included:

Conor McGregor: $40,000
def. Eddie Alvarez: $40,000

Tyron Woodley: $40,000
vs. Stephen Thompson: $30,000

Joanna Jedrzejczyk: $40,000
def. Karolina Kowalkiewicz: $30,000

Yoel Romero: $5,000
def. Chris Weidman: $10,000

Raquel Pennington: $5,000
def. Miesha Tate: $10,000

Frankie Edgar: $20,000
def. Jeremy Stephens: $20,000

Khabib Nurmagomedov: $5,000
def. Michael Johnson: $15,000

Vicente Luque: $2,500
def. Belal Muhammad: $2,500

Jim Miller: $20,000
def. Thiago Alves: $20,000

Tim Boetsch: $15,000
def. Rafael Natal: $15,000

Liz Carmouche: $5,000
def. Katlyn Chookagian: $2,500


That's around 400k total payout, the closest to that was ufc 200 which was around 350k. Most of the payouts seem to be in the 200k range.

Really, unless you are pushing you fight and 'bigging' it up then you're not gona get big payouts from UFC or even Reebok. A lot of fighters just want to come in and fight and leave afterwards which is fine.. but if they want to make money they need to go PR machine mode like Conor.

Yeah sorry, the pay outs for 203

Quote:
Main Card (Pay-per-view)
Stipe Miocic ($600,000 + no win bonus = $600,000) def. Alistair Overeem ($800,000)
Fabricio Werdum ($250,000 + $125,000 = $375,000) def. Travis Browne ($120,000)
Mickey Gall ($15,000 + $15,000 = $30,000) def. CM Punk ($500,000)
Jimmie Rivera ($24,000 + $24,000 = $48,000) def. Urijah Faber ($160,000)
Jessica Andrade ($23,000 + $23,000 = $46,000) def. Joanne Calderwood ($25,000)

Preliminary Card (FOX Sports 1)
Bethe Correia ($25,000 + $25,000 = $50,000) def. Jessica Eye ($25,000)
Brad Tavares ($28,000 + $28,000 = $56,000) def. Caio Magalhaes ($20,000)
Nik Lentz ($38,000 + $38,000 = $76,000) def. Michael McBride ($12,000)
Drew Dober ($19,000 + $19,000 = $38,000) def. Jason Gonzales ($10,000)

Preliminary Card (UFC Fight Pass)
Yancy Medeiros ($24,000 + $24,000 = $48,000) def. Sean Spencer ($17,000)


Like Stipe came out with 200k less than Overeem.. Mickey WITH HIS 30K (which is what most no name guys will manage).. and the shit show cm punk put on got him 500k. :roll:

I'm not living at home these days but I hear there's plenty of McGregor slaters out there. Second Captains a perfect example of lads who have no clue talking shite about a sport or realm of sport they have no clue about and I know one of them so I know what I'm talking about. Rugby guys like Alan Quinlan calling him a thug..at least he hits lads his own size. I don't like some of the talk he comes out with but as we can see he has every one of these lads backstage looking for his head. Fair fucks to him and to hell with the begrudgers...so typical of a certain type of Irish person. Anyone who has done any type of martial arts knows that what he does takes balls of steel. The man has my respect

So Cormier/Johnson is off 206 as Cormier got injured.

Hearing that to save the ppv they're apparently going to finally strip Conor of the 145 belt so Aldo will be the official champ, so the main event will be Pettis/Holloway for the interim belt.

Yeah very disappointing an already weak fight card just got worse there was talk of having Aldo fight but the UFC seem more concerned with 207 then 206 :roll:

Apparently Gegard Mousasi offered to step in and fight Johnson but Johnson turned it down.

He offered to fight Cormier back at 200 when Jon Jones failed a drug test too.

After his demolition of Uriah Hall in Belfast, Gegard said that he will fight literally anyone they put in front of him, the fella just loves scrapping :lol:

What's the point of the interim belt? The winner is going to be the number one contender for Aldo right - whose the champion - so why bother with an interim belt at all?

the whole thing is turning out to be absolute spastication. McGregor should never have been allowed to go 11 months without defending. So stripping him makes sense. What does not make sense, is then handing the belt to someone who went THIRTEEN months without defending it, has pulled out of five title fights, and got knocked the fuck out by McGregor.

The only way to restore any sort of credibility in the title is to hold it up as vacant and have a single-elimination tournament for it. UFC have made a monumental fuck-up of the whole thing and as a result the “championship” means absolutely nothing.

The Choi Doo-ho was fight unreal and made the night. The crowd went crazy for him probably because the majority of them were Asian. Some knockout from Cowboy as well. But the main event was a pile of shite. Don't know if they edited it out for the TV but the crowd were constantly booing during it and chanting GSP. The miserable cunts should have put in another fight to replace the title one the whole thing ended over an hour earlier than everyone was expecting.

It was my first time going to a live UFC event it wasn't what I was expecting it felt weird and the fights seemed to go a lot slower without being able to hear the commentary. But I would definitely go again. Joe Rogan played live on Friday night and it sold out quicker than 206 didn't bother trying to get a ticket for Joe because he is suppose to be terrible live.

Poor Joe, hahaha. I love his podcast but he's not a funny comedian. In fact most of these American 'comedians' are just terrible. I watched his special on Netflix and didn't laugh once. I'd go see him live because I find him interesting but as a spoken word thing. How these lads call themselves comedians I've no idea.

Delighted she won. Never liked Rhousey with all the cuntiness over the years. Terrible winner and worse loser. At least with McGregor you know he has the confidence too but most of the talking is for show and to sell tickets etc.

Not to make light of it but she should be on suicide watch.. given how bad she took the loss against Holmes.. took a year off.. did almost no press and then wanted no press for this and gets destoryed in what 45 secs and it's new years eve.

Nunes explained in the post fight about what she was doing with the finger over her lip. Apparently it was directed at Rhousey's couch telling him to be quite.. as he was telling Rhousey she's a good striker and should go up against her like that hah

I'm more shocked at Dominick Cruz being completely outclassed by Cody Garbrandt.

TJ Dillashaw put on a great performance too, he should get the next title shot, will be interesting too considering hey used to be teammates.
