do they really get paid more than guys on regular UFC cards?

Or are they finally finished with paying 2-3 g's a fight?

Yeah, I have been a little surprised recently as far as the payouts go with all of the cash coming into the UFC, but you have to remember that these are the OFFICIAL payouts. If I am correct, these do not include the FotN, KOotN, and SubotN bonuses. Plus, the UFC has a history of paying fighters more than what it on their contract (and what is reported). Dana has been known to throw a few g's at a guy for going out there and bringing it, even though he lost (someone like Guida or J-Rock would fit that bill).

these include finishing bonuses... Looks like all the TUF guys got 8k to show/8K to win.

Except Goulet, looks like he got 7k./7k

Why he is getting less as the experienced pro, I have no clue.

Curious to see the FOTN and such when its announced.

You know how every pro Sports team that makes way to much money for what he contributes to the team. They pay him that because they agreed on a contract both the team and the player signed the contract there for the team must pay him what they agreed on. It is the same thing with the UFC the fighers sign a contract with the UFC and that contract explains that they will be making X amount of dollars per fight. What we think about fighters salries dosn't matter, they signed up for it if anything we should be wondering why they would sign contract for such low money.

I want to know who got submission of the night.

Yeah, its a tough call, but I think youre right -- that War Machine-J-Rock fight had me on the edge of my seat.

Roman "I aint no pooosy" Mitichyan, or maybe Mac because of the fact Tommy didn't tap on the show.

Well he's a UFC veteran, it would be nice to see them taking care of the people who have been with them for years.
