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."

Thats awesome. I wouldnt expect that trend to continue for much longer but big props to Maldonado. The dude is a tough sob for sure. I'm sure theres some joke about that not being the easiest way to make that much money but it aint comin to me. Cant wait to see him fight again and hope he actually gets an easier fight.

octowussy - He'll need it for all the medical bills he'll run into later on in life due to all that head trauma.

Free healthcare in Brazil, this guy is gonna be drooling all over an Armani suit.

Oh I know he'd need some w's first before top contenders. Kinda just imagining Maldonado in the middle weight div. is exciting. Phone Post

Good for Zuffa and good for Fabio. I don't care how much they gave him, he earned every fucking penny in that fight.
