Default UFC Contract Question

Maybe Dave or Nate or somebody can answer this.
I was wondering how many tickets (Plane) and hotel rooms the UFC gives a fighter.
Like Matt for instance, how many people do they let him bring to AD?

I am not sure. But I know as a pro wrestler we were responsible for all our own travel arrangements and only elite top talent had it in their contracts for such luxuries. My guess is top tier talent gets theses perks as well.

Well obviously it's not a whole lot for an event like AD since NateR isn't getting to go. If Matt had a lot of tickets and hotel rooms he'd take his webmaster, I'm sure.

Well see, that is what brought up my question, the guys getting 3K,
there is no way they are paying to fly themselves and 2 or 3 cornermen out to wherever and stay in a hotel for 3 or 4 days.
That would be the entire check, and if they didn't have the cash up front?

Sponsorship cash. I sure hope they get something that is for sure. The only time in my years travel was in the negotiation was Puerto Rico and Japan dates ( i could not afford to go even at what they were offering so sadly i missed a great chance) So I would be interested to see how it work for them.

For a few years yes. Mostly in the Mid west and west coast. I wrestled under the name Doomsday Warrior Chris Chaos, Vic Tory, and The Stooge. From 92-95. I even was lucky enough to be a jobber for the WWF in the early 90's where I got to wrestle John Tenta (AKA The Earthquake). I quit because I broke my ribs from a power bomb on concrete floor and never really healed up well. I still have aches and pains from those days even today.
