okay so now Jon Fitch and Tim Kennedy are just nobody's? I'm sorry but I've trained and fought before so I know how much hard work and dedication goes into each training camp. These guys put it all on the line in there! I think they should get paid better then some high school drop out picking up your thrash can on the side of the road. And you whole argument about them being lower tier Fighters is flawed. because according to dana by the time you make it into the biggest show on earth you're not supposed to be a low tier fighter.
That's a pretty arrogant, ignorant, and uneducated statement.
1. Garbage men put in as hard of a day of work as anyone else.
2. In capitalism, the amount of work you do does not mean you will get paid more. It is the value of the work you do. In the entertainment world, if you are not known you will not make a lot of money. I wasn't referring to specifically Fitch or Kennedy, but if you make Jon Fitch the headlining man on a card, and I mean a card where he is the biggest fighter on the card, it would not sell out the smallest arena the UFC has been to in the last 10 years. THAT is why he got paid less. CAPITALISM.
