  1. i think there pay sucks for most of the ppl.. alot of the fights got under 5k..

    also i love the different in the pay checks Antonio Silva: $200,000 ($100,000 win bonus)

    def. Justin Eilers: $20,000

  2. Oswald Gobblecock says:

    Well, so much for fighters complaining about what UFC pays. lol

  3. Definitely not Affliction paychecks, but not as bad as I thought it is.

  4. gary lipa says:

    sick of chucks mug on the payouts we all know hes over paid as of late!!!

  5. The numbers for this thing were terrible…just like this payscale. I think the October event will do well with Kimbo back. If it doesn't, say bye bye to MMA on network TV for a while.

  6. Oswald Gobblecock says:

    Gary, he wasn't over paid in his last fight with Silva.
