It may be born out of a bad situation, but Cathal Pendred is putting Mike King's lost bonus money to good use.

Classy hope not too much life as a big time mma fighter is the blink of an eye sometimes. Gotta make hay while the sun shines

Cathal had to campaign to the UFC to get Kings money?

So UFC was going to keep the money? If a fighter earns money from fighting then loses it as a fine it shouldn't just go back to the UFC IMO. It should automatically go to charity, or to the opponent who had to overcome the roider.

I agree, I think in all cases, the other fighter should get the money, especially considering they were the one who had to fight the guy on juice or whatever the case might be.
