They don't suck compared to a UFC f!ghters contract. Again, most of you are comparing salaries when this is not what the article is about.
The article posted is only about the salary discrepancy between boxing and mma.

Jesus you can't read.

The name of the article is "The Business of f!ghting: A Look Inside the UFC's Top-Secret f!ghter Contract." It's about UFC contracts. Only you and a few other guys are trying to make this a salary comparison with boxing while ignoring the topic. I guess I would ignore those contract terms too if I believed the UFC could do no wrong like you people do.

Here's Alvarez's UFC contract that was also posted and dissected. I'm sure you'll continue to ignore this slave contract too.

I read what was posted. That's what everyone is responding to, not the link posted with it. I rarely click links posted. I'm pretty sure nobody clicks them lol.

After reading the link, the contract isn't as bad as you guys are making it out to be. Most of the crazy stuff is so they can re-air old f!ghts. And they compensate you for use of your image. . I can understand the champion clause. UFC spends millions building these guys up. They aren't about to have one of their champions leave and give legitimacy to another org.

Overall it's no where near as bad as it seems at face value.

How long have you been employed by the UFC?
