    Feel bad for Cub's payout. But I guess he earned it.

    Can hardly live off of 5k per fight.

    He sucked anyway, if he had a clue what was going on he would have spotted that arm bar from a mile away. When you get arm-barred by someone with a fighting style that some people compare to Tank Abbott you know your career isn't headed in the right direction.

    Looks like they are making pretty good $$ considering the WEC is a much smaller cash cow than the UFC...
