It's a little more than eight months since MMA veteran Gary Goodridge fought Gegard Mousasi at FEG's Dynamite!! 2009 New Year's Eve show in Japan. Eight months, and still he hasn't seen a single penny of the money he's owed for that bout, Goodridge told MMA Fighting earlier Wednesday.

"I'm pissed off. I'm fed up. I want my money," said the 44-year-old Goodridge. "Of course, you're like any other fighter at first, you stay quiet. You think, I stake my reputation and my whole career with these people. Of course they're gonna pay. Of course they're gonna pay, since my whole livelihood came from them in the last 13 years. Now it's eight months and it's quite obvious I'm not getting paid. So I'm going to open my mouth now."

Bum deal for Big Daddy. He is an icon from the "old days" And all he is fighting for now is respect and an F'ng payday!!!! Fighting is all he knows!! Too bad some of the underling orgs are spreading themselves sooooo thin they can't pay up. Didnt this also happen with the new org from Austrailia!?!? Not to GG but other fighters were claiming the same thing!?!?!?
