The only one that I am surprised about is Marshall. How in the world did he only make $10,000? This was his NINTH WEC fight, and he is the light heavyweight champion. No way he should make less than Chael Sonnen, who LOST!

yeah well they have contract man.
they paid as much as there contract are telling that they have to paid for each fighter.

i am sure that if a guy do very well, he will have a better contract as soon as the old one will expired.

I guess that's what happens when you sign a long-term contract
