UFC 54 pay scale

Pretty interesting read. Hopefully with the new tv shows and popularity on the rise, that the pay scale goes up too. This was the most pay that UFC has ever given out for one show.

-Chuck Liddell: $160,000 ($80,000 for fighting; $80,000 win bonus)

-Matt Lindland: $30,000 ($15,000 for fighting; $15,000 win bonus)

-Tim Sylvia: $80,000 ($40,000 for fighting; $40,000 win bonus)

-Tra Telligman: $9,000 ($9,000 for fighting; win bonus would have been $9,000)

-Georges St. Pierre: $28,000 ($13,000 for fighting; $15,000 win bonus)

-Frank Trigg: $14,000 ($14,000 for fighting; win bonus would have been $14,000)

Randy's contract was made after he wont the belt. Chuck is still on the same contract he had before he beat Randy. Im sure that will change now.

They are both at different points in their contracts. I believe when Couture signed that deal, he was the LHW champ. If Chuck keeps winning, his new contract will have him being paid more.

I can't imagine fighting for 1 or 2 grand. As much training that they have to put in and the injuries, fuck.

Im pretty sure the cans in Pride are making bank. None of this 2K to fight, 2K to win crap. lol
With more exposure to the general public, they pay for the fighters in the USA are bound to go up. They sure as hell cant go any lower. lol
