Rousey and Faber will be taken care of though. I'm sure both will receive bonuses for their performances.

Happy Robertson got it because he earned it fair and square. Never should be about who makes what but I'm glad the lower paid guys get it.

I was happy to see that also. Also happy Faber didn't get it either.

I still think that first fight should've been the fight of the night. The Bermudez fight was too one sided. Other than that left hook, what did Grice do exactly other than endure punishment?
