    grappling money

    Out of curiousty, what's the average prize money awarded for the top competitors in a submission grappling tourney? I've noticed most tournament web sites do not list the actual amount.

    I got offered around $400, Omega would kick my ass silly, no wonder he would get more HAH!

    It depends whos running the comp,how well financed it is etc etc. I would suspect Ronin would of got some good offers.

    What would UFC pay you? That should be a lot more, right?

    We don't have such things here...

    400-500$, that's not a lot of money in my op...

    the lowest fighters in the UFC ranks make a couple grand, and then a couple more if they win I think. I've seen lists around... I'll try and find one.

    If anybody here is interested in the payscale for MMA fighters. UFC's scale is:

    Depending on belt fight or hype:

    Randy Couture: USD$120,000 to show, USD$80,000 to win
    Vitor Belfort: USD$100,000 to show, USD$30,000 to win
    Frank Mir: USD$60,000 to show, USD$30,000 to win
    Matt Hughes: USD$55,000 to show, USD$55,000 win.
    Carlos Newton: USD$30,000 to show
    B.J. Penn: USD$25,000 to show, USD$25,000 to win
    Matt Serra: USD$8,000 to show, USD$8,000 to win
    Hermes Franca: USD$6,000 to show, USD$6,000 to win
    Wes Sims: USD$5,000 to show, USD$5,000 to win
    Renato Verissimo: USD$5,000 to show, USD$5,000 to win
    Josh Thompson: USD$4,000 to show, USD$4,000 to win
    Lee Murray: USD$3,000 to show, USD$3,000 to win
    Jorge Rivera: $USD3,000 to show, USD$3,000 to win
    Georges St-Pierre: USD$3,000 to show, USD$3,000 to win
    Karo Parisyan: USD$3,000 to show, USD$3,000 to win
    Jeff Curran: USD$2,500 to show, USD$2,000 to win

    That was the pay for the last event. There is politics involved just as all sports.

    When, where and by whom were you offered this?
    What grappling experience do you have?
    What other grappling competitions have you participated in?
