      Sangalicious. MMA is still young and growing. You have to keep in mind that this is what they have do disclose to the public. What a fighter really makes is unknown. They do not have to disclose what the have in there contracts.

    MMA Punk, I like your site. I heard about it from Extreme John. It was interesting seeing the fighers’ salaries. I had no idea that the Athletic Commission released those. I’m looking forward to UFC 100.

      The Constant Complainer. Thanks for the comment. The Fighter have to release There Fight salaries but this does not include all the money they make for the fight. What they make form sponcers or points on the PPV buys they do not have to report. We may never know what a fighter really make for one single fight. Extreme John is a great guy and a great friend. I’ll tell him you stoped by.
