WHAT HAPPENED?

In his latest bid to help improve fighter pay for the UFC roster, Jake Paul proposed a $27 million idea that revolves around giving more bonuses at events throughout the calendar year.

Commit $50K bonuses for every winner. $600K per UFC event. 45 events [with] 12 fights, [which equates to a] total payout of $27M (2.7% of revenue).

Paul believes this will help make all the fights throughout an event more exciting, in addition to the extra pay.

Either way, his idea sparked a discussion on social media spanning hundreds of comments, retweets, and thousands of likes.
