Silva has been fighting forever though but I do agree beating the champ and getting paid shit is laughable

I give Brown much more respect now, but Eric Silva is young and kinda dumb. He fought the same way against Fitch. He makes an awesome combination and hurts him and then stops. Brown has also exposed a major weakness! Jordan Meins kicked (and hit) him in the liver twice and didn't pursue him when he was hurt and Siva did the exact same thing. They both let him recover and Brown is not the kind of guy to let recover cuz he just goes snake a few seconds later even when he's hurt cuz he got excellent survival mode. He still needs to beat a top 10 to prove himself. As for money! Not one fighter in the UFC is given enough!! $8000 is an insult but guys want and need to be seen to shine. The UFC might have not made too much years ago but now they're rolling in it. DFW can go to the casino and lose 5 million and not blink but he can't pay a fighter who's risking everything to put on a show. White treats these guys like Mike Vick does dogs! If this is the so called ELITE of the ELITE fighting championships then pay accordingly. Too many guys gotta work just to survive too. That's what the small shows are for. Guys paid there dues there to make it big and get shit on unless they get the belt. Weidman got $50,000 (plus his 50K bonus) for beating Silva (the first time) who got at least a million after the PPV points and shit. It just ain't right.

Do you know that floyd mayweather wipes his ass with this kind of money. Brown deserves 500 k for that performance. And silva deserves 250 at least.

I hope Brown got another 100k, undisclosed. And Silva got 100k as well. This is what keeps the UFC going, make no mistake.
