the other f!ghts before ppv card do they get payed too? not expecting there pocket to be big but do they even get anything at all? or just exposure
Entry level UFC f!ghters get 6k to show up, 6k to win and they also get secret bonuses that aren't made public. I once heard Dana White telling the guys befor the show that he's giving 20k per knock out on the card and Knock Out Of The Night is getting 68k.
You also get money for promoting your f!ght and getting people interested in it. There's alot of little things that UFC pays for that aren't announced publically. Also being on television gets you more money from your sponsors.
I would say average entry level f!ghter who is brand new in the UFC is getting $25k per f!ght once it's all said and done, some 80k+ if they get a sub/f!ght of the night or knock out bonus
