    I don't remember seeing Vera look so angry in a fight, I guess that's the anger from losing 140k in salary

    Gonzaga took a huge cut too; IIRC he was making 150K+ for the last few fights.

    Always wondered.....does UFC give free medical treatment to the fighters after the fight? Or is that up to the fighters to pay? Because $3000 wouldn't go very far at the hospital.

    they get coverage contrary to what Kalib Starrnes says. Not sure if it is only day of care or if it covers on going treatment for sustained injuries, but I would have to assume it would cover it all.

    I'd be curious to find out if people who test positive are no longer covered for treatment after the fight. I would guess they wouldnt be covered.

    Is this supposed to be some sort of burn on Hamill or something?

    I think Starnes was complaining that they are uninsured for injuries sustained during training.

    nope. he said that he got a medical bill after his fight with Belcher that was more than his purse. Hence the logical decision to run from Quarry for 3 rounds.

    Really? I thought his excuse was he was injured, but needed to fight for the money?

    That is what he posted on a few different forums. He said the rumors about him protesting were false. He went into great detail about injuries sustained in that fight.

    starnes is from canada, if he went across the border he would of got free medical treatment regardless of where and how he got injured. Unless they HAD to take him to a US hospital.
