    ^ I think I've got a price model where you can have a prize for competitors entering the competition in the way you describe.

    I mean, everyone pays to compete right, so why not increase the price slightly and have the surplus (minus the cost of running the event etc) be a cash prize for 1st/2nd place?

    I mean say you had a tournament with 100 players, if you included a $10 prize pool for entering the competition, there would be $1000 up for grabs. Of course 99/100 people would lose and not get the money, but I'm sure people would be happier to compete under some system like that than the present.

    If it was a feasible tournament system, I don't see the problem with expanding the player pool and entrance price - What about 1000 players and $100 contribution? Now you're talking about $100,000 prize pool, thats some serious money!

    I mean, the odds are better than the lottery, and at least you are depending on your own strength and skill rather than a random proceedure - and you get to compete in something you love.

    my buddy who did the old school, pre-ufc/Gracie invasion smokers, would do the roadhouse fights where everyone paid into a pool.

    Usually it was winner take all, sometimes 70% for winner and 30% second place; something like that.

    No ground work, everyone just toed off and tee'd off on each other ;)

    For pro boxers, it usually scales with the number of rounds you're fighting. Beginners start with 4 round fights, getting anything from about $100 to $1000 and will usually cover medial insurance for any injuries sustained as a result of the fight. I'm guessing entry level for MMA will be similar. You're not likely to get any other expenses paid until you're fighting 6 or 8 rounders.

    jimbob,

    I've never heard of a 6 round MMA match. Professionals at the top level fight 3 5-minute rounds for non-title matches and 5 5-minute rounds for title fights.

    I think the OP was talking about low level pro fights, right after switching from amateur events, which are often 3 3-minute rounds around where I live.

    yeah, they are 3-3 minute rounds.


    I'd feel terrible for some of those guys, who come in, fill out the fighter registration form, and fight, with no training and little actual fighting experience, if the rounds had an extra 2 minutes...

    if your looking to make a living fighting i suggest you keep looking for anyother way to earn income.
    look at the ufc purses, unless your a big name you'll likely get under 10g and if you fight only once or twice a year, thats pretty **** money.

    So what I'm hearing is for a new Pro, in his first fight, pay is somewhere between $500 and $750 plus expenses. Is that about right?
