UFC will compensate fighters more who are active on twitter, facebook and youtube.

Strikeforce fighters have been told the organization is here for the long run.

Or maybe they should just pay the fighter's more so they can afford to hire manager's and PR people to do this. Training and publicity is draining enough.
