How much does a commentator for the UFC make?

Although different UFC commentators make varying amounts of money per event based on their popularity, according to a report by sportscriber, the average salary for commentators ranges from $48,000 to $75,000.

Unsurprisingly, long-time color commentator and popular podcaster Joe Rogan is one of the top-paid sportscasters in the promotion. The popular comedian earns $75,000 per event and a total of almost $550,000 per year from his commentary duties.

Lately, Rogan has limited himself to calling pay-per-view events that take place in North America. The 55-year-old has been with the promotion for almost two decades. He first occupied the promotion’s commentary booth at UFC 37.5 in 2002.

Similar to Rogan, former middleweight champion Michael Bisping also earns $75k per event. However, since ‘The Count’ calls more fights per year than the 55-year-old, he earns around $1.46 million annually.

In addition to calling fights for the premier MMA promotion, Bisping also does color commentary for Dana White’s Power Slap League.

Additionally, former lightweight contender Paul Felder rakes in $48,000 for color commentary per event.

Who are the commentators for the highly anticipated UFC 284 PPV?

The color commentary duties of the highly anticipated UFC 284 will be handled by Michael Bisping, bantamweight legend Dominick Cruz and lead play-by-play commentator Jon Anik. This will be the first time the trio will be calling a pay-per-view event together.

UFC 284 will take place on February 11 at the RAC Arena in Perth, Australia. The event will be headlined by a lightweight title fight between Islam Makhachev and Alexander Volkanovski.

As per the live betting odds on DraftKings Sportsbook, the Dagestani is a massive -365 favorite against ‘The Great’ (+300 underdog).

If the Russian wins the event, he is expected to take over the top position in the promotion’s pound-for-pound rankings. Meanwhile, if ‘The Great’ wins, he’ll become the promotion’s fifth-ever simultaneous two-division champion, while also solidifying his status as the pound-for-pound king.

In the co-main event of the card, top contenders Yair Rodriguez and Josh Emmett will fight for the interim featherweight title. Rodriguez and Emmett hold the No. 2 and No. 5 positions respectively in the featherweight rankings.
