def. Andy Enz: $8,000

* – After missing weight Gastelum fined 30 percent of purse, which was awarded to Woodley
+ – After missing weight, Lineker fined 30 percent of purse, which was awarded to McCall

Now, the usual disclaimer: The figures do not include deductions for items such as insurance, licenses and taxes. Additionally, the figures do not include money paid by sponsors, which can oftentimes be a substantial portion of a fighter’s income. They also do not include any other “locker room” or special discretionary bonuses the UFC oftentimes pays. Additionally, they don’t include any pay-per-view revenue some top fighters receive.

For example, as previously reported, UFC officials handed out additional $50,000 UFC 183 bonuses to Boetsch (“Fight of the Night”), Alves (“Performance of the Night”) and Leites (“Fight of the Night” and “Performance of the Night,” for $100,000 total).

In other words, the above figures are simply base salaries reported to the commission and do not reflect entire compensation packages for the event.

Too little?

This is pretty random guesswork but a conservative estimate would be that the UFC makes something like $35,000,000 to $50,000,000 in revenue off of a card like this. I certainly hope you don't think $500,000 for one of their biggest draws is too much. I also don't think Diaz made $500,000 he likely made several million with his PPV cut.

I'd say its pretty damn much, as Floofy said DC got 90k and JBJ 500k and they sold OVER 750,000 PPVs. Diaz is not that huge of a PR attraction for them to pay 500k wow, I would understand if tons of people watch the card just because of him, but i highly doubt that, its Silva that got people to watch the card.
Anyway what i mean is, Diaz is far less skilled than many other fights, and his story is too old for people to care => he doesn't deserve such big payment, not to mention he hasn't fought since GSP like 2 years ago
He has this sense that tells him he deserves a title, any title because of the things he s achieved, and he doesn't even understand how delusional he is :/

  • Diaz was a huge reason for why people watched this card.
  • It makes no sense to compare base salary of fighters that are a part of the PPV cut.
  • DC might be on the end of his contract or in the middle of one and is worth a lot more than that now. Still DC is nowhere near as big of a draw as Diaz.
  • Diaz sat out for two years claiming retirement and as a result he was able to get a fair/better deal out of the UFC. Fighters have no negotiating power and Diaz' move was super risky.
  • You can't compare what these guys make with your own value of money either I get the feeling you just think $500,000 is a lot of money. It doesn't matter what it means to you.
  • Guaranteed all those guys make far more than $500,000 and are still heavily underpaid.

Diaz was the reason I cared about the main event. Now that the fight is over, we can look back and see he was the reason the fight had any entertainment.

Anderson won, but he was moving backwards most of the time, and didn't initiate much offense aside from a couple clean body kicks. Even if Diaz threw more punches, he probably would've lost a split-decision.

Hm I think your numbers are prob way off on how much the UFC makes.

Let's say they did 550k PPV buys.

550k x 55 = 30,250,000

Cable PPV provider takes half right off the top.

15,125,000 + 4.5 million gate = 19,675,000

Then you add in sponsorship's etc. But I doubt those even cover things like advertising, arena fee's, hotel costs, flights,, commission costs etc.

I kinda doubt Diaz made several million for this fight. Huge stars like GSP & Silva were estimated to make roughly 5 million on cards where they sold almost a million PPVs. I kinda doubt Diaz will be making several million as the 2nd draw on a card that I doubt will break 600k ppvs.

My random guesstimations would be something like Diaz will walk away with slightly over a million, and Silva slightly over 3 million.

500k is high by UFC standards but actually pretty low by professional athlete standards. Random nobodies in other major sports make 500k.

By my account of revenue that includes the PPV cut for the cable provider so you'll easily make it that way. I know they pay a lot for that but it's still the UFC paying them and us paying the UFC.

I would be shocked if Diaz didn't make a huge amount for this. The whole situation just screams him getting an incredible deal.

The only serious negotiating power a UFC fighter has is retirement in his prime and that is what he did. Got a new agent too. Then he fought Anderson.

Okay, I actually didn't quite make my point clear. Overall its natural that professional athletes make such amount of money considering they are probably the top 0,01% of all athletes that tried. Anyways thats not the point. I'd say Diaz is heavily overpaid @ UFC standards since the difference in salaries between people that would get just as much popularity, but are actually quite better fighters earn far less at least from the official report, but that is where my point loses value as I didn't how that the PPV cut matter that much, but you explained that Nazgul so I get it now :/

I can picture what his new agent said to him

"Nick Diaz, you should stop being hit in the face so much, you should be hit in the face less, and they should pay you more! Are you following me Nick Diaz?"

Then Nick Diaz's eyes lit up.

"Yes! I should be getting punched in the face less, and they should pay more!"

The lightbulb just turned on, it was the start of something special.

Sick.

Diaz gets $500k for his show-money and also gets his loss overturned due to Silva getting popped. However, I've never seen both fighters fail a test, so I can only assume this will be treated like other cases.

apparently a guy tried to raise suspicion about Silva taking stuff years back, but got called a hater, and it kinda faded, not sure if it's true or not:
