UFC Lightweight John Cholish is claiming on twitter that he still hasn't been paid for fighting Gleison Tibau at UFC on FX 8 despite assurances that the money would be wired to him on Monday.

Probably should have waited to shit all over the UFC until he's been paid.

nice twitter response Dana.

what a cunt.
its about time people are speaking out now that they're with other promotions, of course nobody is going to say shit while under contract for fear of being dropped, but im sure a slight majority of the roster feels the same

It says right there in the email that payments will be processed Monday, and may take up to 48 hours to show up in your bank. Yeah it's after 48 hours, but I wouldn't doubt it's a bank situation. We've all dealt with banks and their holds and other bullshit, I would give a little extra grace period for an international wire transfer.

He makes good points about his rate of pay, though. Prelim fighters make peanuts. Hell, Bendo doesn't even get $50k to show and he's the 155lb champ.
