For Meisha and Ronda to headline and only get that much, that's straight embarrassing for the company. Exactly how do they figure how much they get paid? Headliners shouldn't get paid anything less than $50,000. Phone Post

If Ronda isn't making at least 4x that amount in her next fight she needs a new manager.

Jacare making good money. I'm glad since he is stuck in Strikeforce and not fighting as much as a fighter of his caliber should be.

Don't care what their contracts are for, they were headlining in a championship fight and did a shit ton of promotion for the fight. Honestly, I didn't care to even look who else was fighting on the card cause I was so excited for the main event. Hopefully they made a decent chunk that isn't shown there.

Snorelord - So she made a school teacher's annual salary for less then 5 minute worth of work. I wonder since Zuffa is running things if she got a submission of the night award.
You aren't really that stupid, are you?
5 minutes work! Try 8 weeks, at a minimum. Phone Post

 Yeah, she just showed up and won .... she hasn't trained for years and intensively for the months leading up to the fight .... Thats' like saying teachers just work from opening bell until class is dismissed.

 The part that strikes me odd about this the most, is that the ladies sold the card. Yet some regular joe's made more dough.....sigh.
