    As a debut pro fighter I wouldn't expect much of a pay out unless you know the promoter. Best offers I have had are up in Canada. I am just lucky to have fought for a couple stand up promotions and they are great at getting my name out to well paying promoters and managment teams.

    Dude, that's a lot of amateur MMA fights. That's pretty rare in these parts.

    Well, correct me if I'm wrong. I think amateur MMA fights aren't officially sanctioned in our state, Darkson. I'll find the website somewhere....

    I believe ammy-muay thai is ok, pro muay thai is ok, pro mma is ok, ammy mma- is not.

    I did one ammy MMA in Georgia. I heard that they just passed ammy MMA in Florida. I heard some shows were in the works before the end of the year.

    I intend to go pro by the end of the year. Wanted to give it a good run first to see how it effected my life, family, job and what not.

    In Colorado most fighters get paid on the Money to SHOW and money to WIN. The average for a beginner is $300 to show and $100 to win. Somtimes it's more and sometimes it's less. Either way it nowhere compares to boxing. Beginning boxers will pull in usually $500 for a first time pro. A couple fights later and there up at the $1,000 level.

    As you move along to the bigger shows the differences are bigger. I've seen some of the payouts on the UFC and some of these guys are pulling in $5,000 to $14,000 to show with matching to win. There are also bonuses for knockouts and submissions. Lets say a guy fighting in the UFC wins his match gets paid $14,000 to show, $14,000 to win and then gets a $10,000 bonus for a knockout. That's $38,000 for the biggest show in MMA. Comparatively, a boxer fighting on a lower level ShowBox on Showtime is guaranteed at least $100,000 just to fight. Pay per view boxers get within the Millions.

    Right now MMA purses aren't even on the same level as boxing. Maybe one day, but not at the moment.
