The Brazilian said his answer was misunderstood when asked about his money to fight and he won't discuss his contract again with the media.

I think it's a good idea not to talk about how much money you are getting paid. I mean, we aren't discussing what each other makes on here, are we? Who cares, we are just sharing opinions, not comparing bank accounts.

So Dana says he's not star yet and he should tone it down. Interesting, because as a long time mma fan who's quickly becoming tired of the BS the ufc is pedaling, barao fights are ones I actually get amped up to see. I'd buy 5 barao fights before 1 rousey fight (cyborg not included).

Also, what controversy? This is the first I hear about this.

We aren't all working for one entity, that might be why we aren't discussing each others bank accounts.
.this is an mma site which is why we discuss all things mma including payouts. All he said was that he wanted to renegotiate his contract...do you find that to be problematic? Put it this way, you flip burgers at McDonalds and then become manager within a year yet you are still being paid your original wage. You wouldn't have an issue with that?
Who cares? Probably the guy busting His ass and not getting paid. Who else cares? The people who buy ufc products and don't see their money go towards those fighters that deserve it.
You pay your champs. The fact that Dana is even defending this issue is yet another problem.

He just became the champ, which is part of his pay grade problem. If his management was smart, they would have demanded Cruz get stripped a long time ago because it screwed him over holding and defending an interim belt.

Barao just became champ not too long ago. He's on Dana's good side as well, so I'm sure his pay will get boosted.
