To me the most crazy numbers are Danny Castillo (makes more money than Joe Lauzon) and Ed Herman.

Everyone else theres a reason for their big or low numbers, except for those 2.

Voelker. 12K to take a fight on short notice against a murderer. Yeesh. And 78K win bonus for Lawlor, no wonder he was out for blood.

Even if it isn't, he deserves more then Rory, he's been in the game for years and always puts on a good fight and looks for the KO. I bet if Rory fought Kos, he'd try and pull the same shit as he did against Ellenberger, but probably get out wrestled. Phone Post

Lawler deserves it he has been in the game for a very long time and is in always entertaining fights. Just on seniority alone he deserves to be paid higher just like in any other field

Does he not deserve it? He is never in a boring fight, and puts it all on the line, every time.

If I put the two of you in a cage with MM, in about 10 mins the both of you would be serving him tea and biscuts and sucking his cock if he wanted you to..........

SF contract... and that's an example of why they went belly up.

Lawler will not be getting easy fights.

Those were the contracts when they first signed. UFC didnt even know if the division would hold up. When their current contract is up he will get a lot more. If you sign a 6 fight contract for 25k a fight but become champ in your 3rd fight. You still have to fulfill your obligation to the final 3 fights for 25k a pop. Does anyone on here know anything about business or contracts ect? This bitching about fighter pay ect is fucking stupid. They signed a fucking contract and know what they are getting before the fight and future for future fights if its a multi fight deal. If cards fall right and you become champ before current contract is up great. But you still fight for what you signed on for. Phone Post 3.0

He should be getting paid more for being champ. These guys shouldn't sign contracts that allow a raise when the belt is won. But, I don't know what the contracts say so I'm just talking out of my ass. Phone Post 3.0

Oh cool so its not longer good enough to become champ, then you have to earn the champ money over a period of time after?
