Also keep in mind for a sport that has it's figurehead constantly talked about how it's going to overtake the major sports $537000 over 2.5 years for a top tier fighter is a pittance. Especially considering the physical risks these guys take. As long as the UFC's financials remain clouded there's always going to be room for criticism for fighter pay. When that criticism comes from the fighters themselves that's something that shouldn't be summarily dismissed.
