It's ridiculous that Joe Riggs (UFC, WEC, STRIKEFORCE) vetran with over 40 fights is making less than a 130 lb woman fighter. Unreal...

Thinking most, if not all, of these fighters are semi-pro is a joke. Change the name on the event title so you can take advantage of fighters. Pretty sad.

Exactly, people have no idea how business works. If they are worth more, then someone will pay them that.  If not, then they arent worth any more!
