Why you care about how much f!ghters make? As a fan your job is to only want to see the best f!ghts be put on. Alot of that is only the base pay. You see those ugly a.ss sponsors on the f!ghters shorts? Yup, they get PAID to wear them. Some of the biggest f!ghters get a PPV cut like $2 per-buy if the PPV gets a certain number of buys.
And that's still nothing compared to what the biggest boxers get paid. As a fan, it is incredibly selfish of me to say fu*k the f!ghters and their livelihood in a sport where they might not be able to compete again after any given match, just give me the best f!ghts. Yes, I want to see the best f!ghts, obviously. But I don't think anyone should be unfairly compensated, especially if they're f!ghtING for a living. That said, boxing might not be the best structure, a single league with a f!ghter's union might be, but even so, I understand why boxing is how it is. Of course, the dictatorship that is the UFC certainly put on a better display in 2011.
