Maldonado paid bonus despite loss
Fabio Maldonado is a happy Zuffa employee.
A month after his vicious loss to Glover Teixeira at UFC 153, the Brazilian posted on his Facebook page that the UFC has taken care of him and then some.
“This is a good or bad news,” he wrote in his native Portuguese. “I just got a check in the mail from UFC, and I would like to share with friends and fans that for the fourth time, even getting my ass whooped like I had last fight, the UFC sent me more money than I would get if I had won the fights. Thanks Dana [White], Lorenzo [Fertitta], Joe Silva.”
