Jds got ppv cut cuz he "defended" his title. Once cain defends his, then he can make it rain on the hoes of his choice.

Jaime Varner needs to get paid in his next contract. He's fought arguably the 3 most exciting fighters in the lightweight division and has beaten two of them and had a fight of the night with the other....

I don't think Tim is overpaid, lauzon is just underpaid. Both those guys should be getting a 100k a fight. Boetsch is top ten. And we all know what lauzon does

as usual the top guys are underpaid and the low card guys are overpaid (in regards to how much money they bring in for the UFC).I put no stalk in the commission figures. They are not even close to how much the fighters actually make.
