That's ridiculous if you compare the performances they took, Griffin looked weak and lazy
Danny gave it his all and got his arse handed to him. After Tyson's last performance he'd be long gone if I was Dana, and I'm not fighter bashing as I used to be a huge fan... Right up to before he got KO'd by Gomi, now I'm just losing all respect for him

Vera got decent money for being unimpressive again.

But once again, Idk how the contracts are.

Mitriones wage is low as well, especially for a co main event slot!

With 200k plus FOTN bonus I'd say Nick Diaz made a decent payout despite the fact he is still complaining about what he makes.

Downes could still have a contract from the WEC where he fought a few times.

thats just his contract pay. im sure he got a cut of the PPV as well. his TUF contract should be over by now anyways.

They need to pay extra to get people to go to Stockton for sparring I guess.

Mitrione's 10Gs is a slap in the face. What a sick joke.

the dollar difference between mitrione and congo is retarded. neither were impressive regardless of whos fought who. and that 70k win bonus for congo is even worse

Mirko "Cro Cop" Filipovic: $75,000. must have gotten some cash for retirement.

Donald Cerrone: $54,000 (includes $27,000 win bonus). should have been better. should have at least made more than congo even if cerrone wasn't on the main card

Also interested in joining the wage disparity band wagon. For the life of me, I can't understand why Vera first made 60k (just to show) when he was just released after his 3rd loss in a row, albeit to a roiding T Silva, but you would consider him a bit lower on the chopping block when it comes to payouts when he was that close to being released. The fight was boring, has no future implications, and was against another opponent recently released by the UFC. So why then, is his win bonus another 60k? Was Jorgenson's Main Card win not as winny to allot the same win bonus? I also see an issue with Mitrione's pay, considering he was on a nice win streak. Don't they usually increase their pay by 4k-8k increments each time they win? Something here stinks.
