I have seen after certain events there are posts which show the list of fighters and how much they got paid with this disclaimer:
The following is the reported payout to the fighters as reported to the California State Athletic Commission. It does not include sponsor money or "locker room" bonuses often given by the UFC and also do not include the UFC's traditional "fight night" bonuses
So is there any knowledge on what these numbers usually are? I see fighters always bring that banner with them and they put it up behind them while Bruce Buffer twists and shouts. Then there are the sponsors on their shorts/shirts and sometimes even hats... how much are these guys paying them, does anyone know?
Also, I don't see these posts after every event. Is it only certain Athletic Commissions which disclose this information to the public? I was really wondering what Jon Jones has been paid for his latest appearance but haven't seen a figure for it yet.
Lastly, can it be determined that the money paid by Bud Light through transmission of assets ACTUALLY IS paying Brock Lesnar's hefty paycheque?
