Fighters bear significant costs including training expenses, a percentage to management, a percentage to the trainer, plus insurance, licenses, and taxes.

On the income side, fighters earned sponsorship of between $2,500 and $50,000 for wearing Reebok apparel in the Octagon, and during the week before it. Out-of-event sponsorship money too can be significant, although it is smaller for many fighters than it was in the past. In addition, four $50,000 'of the Night' Performance Bonuses, are awarded.

Further, main event PPV fighters can receive a percentage of the PPV gross, as contracted, generally at a rate that escalates with increased PPV buys.

Lastly, many fighters earn income from teaching, from appearances, and in many cases from regular employment in non-fight employment.
