Does anyone know how much Pettis was making in the UFC?

Crazy that Cyborg is earning half of what she was paid in the UFC, and they can claim sponsirs will be greater but no way they fill that shortfall. She was still sponsored by many companies whilst in the UFC, just no fight day visibility. There was talk recently that fighters get more sponsors now than before because of the use of social media to promote rather than fight day. Anyhoo, crazy how poorly she's paid here.

Pettis too, he chose to refuse a deal in the UFC, so how is he being paid less too? I wonder if there is a 'signing on' fee involved here?

As for how does someone get paid $1500, Bellator are known to pay as little as $250 to fighters on the undercard. Coker tried to explain it as they are giving them a chance to get a contract basically, in the past as an excuse!

There is no way....no fricken way a "professional" fighter should be making that little to fight for a major organization.  that's absolutely fucking embarrassing. Having said that, it is there choice, it doesn't affect me so let them fight it out with the orgs.

It is absolutely ludicrous they get paid this badly, and they really don't have too many choices but to take the shit money on offer if they want to succeed in the sport...….at least they do unless they get the fucking finger out and unionise. They're all so fucking stupid.
