    Probably right. I just hope he doesn't continue to get paid that much in the future when Rampage finally knocks that mother fucker out with one punch.

    Payouts look somewhat better. Dunno if it's because of the effort all of the guys on this card put forth to make up for the disappointment of all the injuries, or just a sign that the UFC is making more of an effort to pay their fighters well. Still, averaging 15-20k is pretty good.

    Yes, Anthony Johnson missed weight by a disgusting amount, and the only reasoning I can see in giving the bonus to Daley is that they wouldnt allow him to get a second chance at making weight.

    I don't think you get the Knockout of the Night bonus if you're on the receiving end of the KO...

    These guys do not make nearly enough. Only 830K paid out? What a joke.

    No they wouldn't, their salaries isn't tied to revenue.

    some of theirs are, and their contracts are most certainly tied to their drawing power.

    The top class fighters are, but they're not the ones that are hurting, its the guys making 7 and 8 thousand. I wonder how much each event draws in, because I'm willing to bet its the fighters aren't making 50% of revenue like they are in all other major sports.

    I totally missed the reason why Rampage and Rashad did not fight at UFC 108. I knew there was a reason for it, I just don't remember. The coaches have always fought each other after the TUF Finale.
