Glover only getting $5,000 to show up is embarrassing. A former title challenger deserves better than that.

They get way more than that. I don't understand why there is so much uproar over this ? There would be many undisclosed payouts plus the 20-30 percent cut of merchandise.

You don't understand the uproar? A lot of fighters are losing tens of thousands of dollars. As far as the merchandise cut.....Do you know anyone that owns a fight kit? Honestly....

Yeah maybe my comments are naive. But I heard a lot of complaining when they were bringing the new uniforms in and have not really heard anything since ?
I don't know really... Possibly it's written in their contract that they can't talk or dispute about pay or they could be getting a lot more undisclosed performance based bonuses. We don't really know anything other than the reebok base pay other then that it's all speculation

Yeah, you've missed a lot then...people have definitely gottwn in trouble and even lost their job for speaking out about the reebok deal (Stitch Duran got fired bro).
My only question is this, on average how much were sponsors paying before. I remember people not getting paid, going to court, wearing no sponsors, and sponsors getting banned...so to be honest, the money may be a little less but consistency is worth something. I don't like how these click me articles don't show the rest of the fighter pay either. It's partial information released in an effort to get a certain pre determined reaction...it's bullshit. There are more media conspiracies than any other kind...trying to form and control public opinion to further their own means. Give us the whole story, not just the part that pisses us off.

I won't ever buy one for 80 bucks.
Honestly even if they were 50. I still wouldn't
