I don't think that it is a joke, but one can argue that they pay their fighters crap. Other organizations have paid more, but they lack the "prestige" of the UFC.

This is Bonnar's second time with steroids. I am not sure what this means for him as he's retired. Herman, now I know why he fought like he did. Yeeesh.
