Yeah, even some of guys who didn't win the show (which obviously make up the majority since there is only 1 winner for each weight class for each season) benefit from being on the show. They get exposure, the get to train with the greatest UFC fighters and their camps/coaches, and most of them get to come back and fight on the Finale and if they put on a good show they'll get asked back. Besides the solitary nature of the show (and the potential shenanigans one may have to endure) there are not to many negatives from being on the show
