How much does it pay to get your face smashed?
With Leather points out just how little some of these guys get paid for the punishment they receive. The Bushwhackers couldn't be happier with the state of the UFC, but let's be honest when you do the math it's really hard to believe what some of the fighters are getting paid to fight in the sports premier league. The numbers haven't been tallied yet for UFC 86, but this page from MMAPayout gives you an idea of what the UFC brought in during 2007 from PPV buys alone. Dana has made a point in recent weeks to trim the UFC roster down from its current position of 250 fighters, which we agree is far too many, but in doing so we think it's worth it to up the salary of guys like Lytle who put on a great shows when they step in the Octagon.
