‘Bad mouths UFC’ is an interesting way of framing this interview.

Bob Arum makes good points here regarding figher remuneration and the different business models in MMA and boxing.

I didnt really hear any bad mouthing.

I usually see things differently when ol’ Bob opens his mouth, but in this interview, he happens to be correct. UFC is a monopoly, and when a business is a monopoly, they get to set their own prices. In this case, lower pay for the fighters. Sad, but true.

mr. x Says, in 9-10-2011 at 11:37:48 from 96.244.245.135    

Bob is right about the pay. MMA fighters need to form a union in order to get a piece of the pie.

Yeah, he talked dirty bout the UFC last time if I remember but nothing he says here is insulting or untrue. That thing he said about percentages is interesting. Consider a PPV where the UFC gets 1 million buys. That’s got to be somewhere around $30,40 million in revenue (or more) especially if you total the gate. How much of that goes to the fighters??
UFC is essentially a monopoly. It’s good for the sport now to be under its banner… it helps with promotion and marketability and expansion. However, in the future, I hope legitimate competition to the UFC arrives.

IMO i think someone making 20 mill for one fight id say that sport has the broken model. The fact that hes not bringing up is that boxers on the undercard of a boxing promotion isnt making as much as the undercard fighters in the ufc. Just because boxing gives its best fighters crazy pay days doesnt make it better Bob.

The part of me that used to love boxing as a kid is saddened to see what a pathetic joke the sport has become.
10 years from now, the idea of paying 60 bucks to see 2 guys getting in a ring with big padded gloves on and punching the s*** out of each other for 36 minutes will be arcane.
I’m sorry, but he lost me at “20 mil. a fight”. I love Pacquiao, and am all for fighters getting paid, but 20 mil a fight is clearly quite excessive, and to ask us poor folks to shell out 60 bucks to facilitate an overpayment of an athlete is just silly.
And 20 bucks says that Arum did that interview with a loaded diaper.

NigerianBoxingMan Says, in 9-10-2011 at 12:30:09 from 76.94.204.115    

Bob Arum isn’t talking crap he’s telling the truth. Why do you think Manny Pacman turned down $30 million simply to not take a blood test for the Floyd Mayweather Fight? Because he’s juicing and knows he could just make $20 down the road while not getting exposed for taking roids. YouTube Teddy Atlas on Manny taking steroids. UFC is a monopoly but then again it’s far less dangerous and brutal than boxing is. They’re is an average of 8 deaths a years in boxing; thee has never been a death in MMA. So I personally believe that because the boxing are putting themselves in a far greater danger that merits a hight payday.

Savage Says, in 9-10-2011 at 12:30:12 from 74.214.108.41    

I actually think he’s right, but on the other hand…the UFC and MMA has only just hit mainstream the past year or 2, quite the contrary to boxing. I’m willing to bet in 50 years when MMA has seen several generations of fighters and has had time to evolve in popularity and talent we will see a multi million dollar fight purse. It simply jus hasn’t had enough time to reach the maturity level of boxing.

Clemmit Says, in 9-10-2011 at 13:58:37 from 81.108.51.61    

@ joey deacon
Bob Arum was explaining the ufc’s business model as a negative. So you could say that he was ‘bad mouthing’ it. He certainly wasn’t singing it’s praises.

Does a fighter need to make 20 million a fight and be empowered to the point he can pick and choose his opponents and deny fans (the people who pay his wages) the match ups they want to see. I don’t think so.

I don’t see any problem with the UFC controlling it’s employees (fighters) with a reasonable wage. And maitaining the monopoly over other organisations.

20 million is a pretty disgusting wage to earn when you consider the state of the economy. I know you will probably argue that the job of a fighter is dangerous and takes it’s toll but so does any job.

I think the UFC takes care of the fans 1st, we are the people who make the sport, boxing looks after the fighters 1st.

It’s not as if UFC fighters are starving. If you want to pay them all 20 million per fight and create hundreds of different organisations so that we never get to see fighters from the different divisions compete then you are on a different planet to me.

Jbs77 Says, in 9-10-2011 at 14:02:28 from 72.24.240.150

Yea I think the title is all to “off” here. This will give some UFC fighters a chance to think about how they make Dog sh*t. UFC is a monopoly. He’s right! Then He says Manny will make $20 Million. You couldn’t take all the UFC purses over 6 months to compete with that. Excellent commentary Bob!!! We’ll see what Dana comes back with, if anything!

sooooopernate Says, in 9-10-2011 at 14:47:04 from 71.59.213.192    

Yeah Bob, 80% of the revenue goes to the main event, and less than 1% is split between the undercard. You make peanuts as a boxing prize fighter until you make it to the top. And the monopoly point? What about the NBA, NFL, MLB, and so on? Those guys seem to be paid pretty well for monopolies. Truth is, the UFC is still growing, and it doesn’t have the capital yet to pay their guys millions of dollars every year, but that’s not to say that they don’t make a good living, on the contrary. Bonuses are pushing 100k now, plus they get sponsorships, ppv cuts, and they fight multiple times a year. When was Floyd’s last fight? When you can be a prima donna and command 40 mill a fight, you can pick and choose your fights, which is terrible for the fans (that’s why we haven’t seen pac v may yet). I understand he’s in direct competition with mma so he has to highlight boxing’s strengths and mma’s weaknesses, so just take his comments with a grain of salt. I wish boxing was more like the UFC in terms of unification, 80 dif weight classes and title belts are a little ridiculous. Sorry for the diatribe.

And is there any amount of money that a promoter can make that you’d find disgusting, or do they deserve all of those private jets that “we the fans” pay to watch them fly around in? I’d argue that “we the fans” pay for watching the fighters fight. The USA has become a nation of self hating sycophants.

PitFighterZ Says, in 9-10-2011 at 15:19:17 from 71.63.32.5    

Both sports still pay sh*t to 90% of the fighters. The difference between boxing and MMA is that the boxing model is already broken and can’t really be fixed any time soon. Boxing will eventually have to go under and be resurrected to become exciting again.
Although MMA is now concentrated in the Zuffa’s hands, you still have a few different models in people’s radars and a few smaller orgs. with some real potential. MMA is not frozen like boxing is and can evolve and become much better than the UFC and much better than boxing. Imagine a model where all professional fighters have some health security and make enough to pay the gym and the bills.
I couldn’t give less than a f*ck of how much the top fighters make. $500k or $20 mil for any athlete sounds absolutely unnecessary waste of money on people who contribute very little to society. I still think the gyms and coaches who get this young kids and take the time and effort to keep them out of the streets and teaching them some decent and noble skills are the ones who should be making a bigger share of the profits. I’d say 50% of all the money goes to the coaching team (not just the gym owner), 25% to the fighters, 15% to all the support people not related to the gym) and 10% to the orgs. After all, the gyms and coaches are the ones investing the most in the sport (relatively).

this video makes no sense because if you look at the wages of boxers 10-15 years after boxing was created it was NOWHERE near what UFC fighters get paid today…the UFC not only pays more then boxers were getting paid 10-15 years into the sports creation they also treat the fighters alot better and give them insurance and purses plus pay the undercards 8-10 times more then boxers on undercards they also treat the fans 100% percent better which is what its all about…hes an idiot and thats why boxing is spiraling into the ground

johnathandoeseph Says, in 9-10-2011 at 15:33:45 from 69.124.11.143    

wait until the UFC is as old as boxing is and then you can say they are underpaid its unfair to say that about business thats brand new because OBVIOUSLY they cant pay fighters what a sport 10 times as old as the UFC can pay…if anyone doesnt see that logic then try starting a fighting company today and paying them what boxers get paid as well as putting on the type of events that UFC puts on…you’ll see then that the UFC does an great job with pay and events

for once Bob isnt bashing mma but that said his facts arent really on point. yes top name boxers make more but thats it. all the money paid out on a ufc undercard beats the undercard of a top rank show. but to say fighters in the ufc cant make a good living is going a little far because i know a bunch of guys that do just fine. top rank may also pay out 80% to the fighters but how much is left after Pacquiao and Marquez take their GIANT SHARE of that revenue. I wouldnt say the UFC pays 20% but i also wouldnt think they are paying past 40% either. just one more fact to point out boxing is a world wide establisted accepted sport and the UFC does possibly up to 90% of the work breaking into new markets and parts of the world doing all that takes a big pile of cash that boxing as a sport never really had to do. if the UFC wasnt doing that all the time and the sport was legally accepted everywhere the paydays would deffinetly be higher. if they werent then ya could say they are keeping more than they should but right now there is no evidence to back that up

PizzaPugilist Says, in 9-10-2011 at 16:58:05 from 76.196.238.98    

Lets make this clear. The UFC, no matter what you think of their shows or business practices, is NOT a monopoly. They do not have %100 percent control of the market, and since this is a free country (for the most part), any joe schmoe like yourself can invest in, and create a fight promotion and choose NOT to sell it when the UFC starts breathing down your neck. I much prefered PRIDE FC personally, but I can also appreciate the UFC’s aggressive business practices. If fighters want more money, I agree with SAVAGE in that it’s just a matter of time.

The UFC is not a monopoly,there are other mma promotions!! Just because they are the biggest and most popular,doesn’t make it a monopoly!

Everyone of you guys that think he is correct,don’t know what the hell you are talking about!Its not as simple as you guys think!There is a lot more to it then what he claims,and he knows it,but he says it because he knows that people like you will buy into it.

wcoastassassin Says, in 9-10-2011 at 19:30:27 from 50.35.180.5    

Yes boxing has been around for a long time. There is nothing that Bob Arum said that is not true though. Dana is growing a sport that has already possibly passed boxing in popularity with young people and he has a chance to make it way bigger. Maybe not a bad idea for boxing right now to put on a few big fights on free tv to gain some viewers but he’s right they pay out to one big fighter more than UFC pays out for 5 or 6 cards. Chuck Liddell was lucky if he made $20 million for his whole career. Tyson and Holyfield grossed over $60 million between the 2 of them for one fight and that was 15 years ago

Ruddo293 Says, in 9-10-2011 at 19:40:15 from 66.8.255.116    

There is only really money in boxing for the top guys. Those guys fighting on the undercards don’t make anything really. Maybe 30k at most if they are lucky. Of course you will never see a MMA fighter make 20 million a fight because then the promotion would be lose millions. We seen something similar with Affliction; they were paying huge purses to guys who didn’t deserve it. Paying Matt Lindland 300k? Tim Sylvia 800k? All in all, it’s good to see these guys get paid what they deserve, but from a business perspective, it’s a huge loss for the company. Most of these guys would make less elsewhere and they would take the money regardless.

morbidcro Says, in 9-10-2011 at 20:37:43 from 98.239.169.127    

Does anyone know what the lesser known boxers fight? Like what’s the amount each boxer is making for their ppv? $20 million for one fight? That by far surpasses everyone from a UFC ppv. I’ve seen the undercard for a UFC event where the fighters get paid $6,000. I imagine UFC sells more than boxing nowaday (I could be completely wrong) and can pay the fighters a lot more.

some people are such idiots posting lol.
I’m a huge mma fan and have been active my self, and yest what he says its the truth not bad mouthing! Most mma fighters in ufc get paid very little money while Dana lorenzo make huge money i’m not saying they should get paid 20 mil since boxing is promoted more but just fair amount of what ufc makes from those fights. its shocking some of the amount I see. 4000-5000? thats just laughable at least for fighters in ufc level! its not like ufc isn’t making any money.

@Ruddo293 you said boxers on the undercard don’t make s***, and said they make about 30k for an undercard fight. You know what undercard fighters in the UFC make? Like 5k if they are lucky.
@sterling “I’d say that mma has a more even pay scale than boxing”
MMA might have a more even pay scale, but that doesn’t make it right, that means the top fighters get f***** along with the undercard fighters, at least the undercard fighters have something to work for in Boxing.
To make it political:It’s kind of the same argument for socialism vs. capitalism, socialism wage scales are more even, everyone gets to live in poverty, vs. capitalism where everyone has a chance to work up to higher earnings.

He’s telling the truth this time BUT…..

He’s leaving out the 80% of struggling boxers that don’t make s*** because Boxing is so huge and the people he’s talking about represent the top elite few of the genre

So yeah UFC fighter should get paid more but boxers should be given more of a chance instead of just the very few who do get that 80% payout and when will Mayweather vs Pacqqio happen cause after that boxing is over lol

Monopoly is a Great thing Says, in 9-11-2011 at 23:02:47 from 99.64.59.240    

He keeps saying monopoly, monopoly… Yes, the UFC is trying to monopolize MMA, which you have to do to become a true sport, one organization for the best, like the NHL, NFL, MLB, NBA… all monopolies. Oh let’s be like borin-I mean boxing and have eighteen champions in the same division with 49 weight divisions spread out over 6 organizations…. overpriced borefest.

It’s difficult to compare the salaries of each sport mainly due to the time value of money.

Looking back at boxing’s early years, $1 isn’t the same as $1 today nor will it be in 50 years (assuming we’re not all dead).

Boxing is definitely in its twilight years, and this has nothing to do with the rise in mainstream popularity with MMA. The sport of boxing just doesn’t evolve. It’s too 1 dimensional for match ups to happen repeatedly for 100 years, and still garner interest from people who aren’t complete simpletons.

The majority of germans did not live together in poverty under national socialism, as matter of fact they never had such a high standard of living until they were attacked by the international banking conspiracy for being a model to be emulated by other nations. Every uneducated blue collar factory worker owned a volkswagen and had several months of paid vacation time at the beach every year. The only reason Bob Arum doesn’t pay fighters the way the UFC does is because he isn’t able to. There are cross promotions in boxing and champs of different orgs fight each other to unify the belts. Pac and Floyd not figting doesn’t have anything to do with there not being only one promoter, just pac being a juicer

Boxing vs MMA reminds me of Snooker vs 8 ball pool.

One makes all the money, the other requires real skills. All the snookers players went and played 8 ball to get $, since that’s where the money was.

Maybe MMA fighters should go to box, even if they lose they’ll get a bigger purse, and will look good for bosing in a sales point… MMA fighters thinks he can beat boxer…blah blah blah.

I guess that’s why Diaz wanted to do boxing, win or lose you get real money, not just enough to pay the bills.
