    How much do UFC fighters make compared to boxers?

    I really want to know, because eventually I will be participating in things such as this.

    I know they make signifcantly less than boxers, which is one of the reasons you don't see good boxers in stuff like UFC.

    I believe the top fighters pull in around 150k a fight, plus a similar purse.

    The biggest names make about 150K+/- per fight in mixed martial arts.
    The biggest names in boxing can make over $10M per fight.

    A beginner in Pride can make the same cash as an established UFC fighter ($20k). Vanderlei Silva makes up to a million dollars per fight or something. God bless Japan.
