UFC Contract Details
(sportsbythenumbersmma.com)
Bob Schreiber, Stefan Struve’s trainer, recently wrote of Stefan’s performance at UFC 95 on his blog. The way the UFC works is that you get a contract which states you HAVE TO win your first 2 fights or you're out. IF you lose the first one, you get a do over, IF you have shown them something, which Stefan didn't do. The last option is that the UFC puts his contract on hold, and then he has to fight AND win 2 fights outside the UFC and when you do the UFC resumes your contract.

Win or go home: Gray Maynard UFC 96 interview
(mmamania.com)
One of the more promising fights on the UFC 96: “Jackson vs. Jardine” card is a lightweight scrap between Gray Maynard (6-0, with 1 no contest) and Jim Miller (13-1). Maynard is now perfect (4-0) in the UFC and was last seen at UFC 90, outpointing Rich Clementi on all three judge’s scorecards. The three-time Division I All-American wrestler (he wrestled on the same team as UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Rashad Evans) is also the only blemish on Frankie Edgar’s otherwise perfect record (9-1).

(mmamania.com)
” … I’m just trying to figure out what we’re doing, that’s all. I’m kind of between a rock and a hard place. The fans and the media treat me like I’m on my tenth show. I’m on my third show, and I’m just trying to make sure I don’t make the same mistakes that I made in the other events. If there’s things I’ve made mistakes on I try to fix them. I’m trying to be methodical about everything. I’m just trying to make sure that whatever we do, we’re doing it right.

WEC 39 Fighter Bonuses
(mmaweekly.com)
The bonuses for the event were confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by WEC officials following the bouts, with Knockout of the Night, Submission of the Night and Fight of the Night getting rewarded. The Submission of the Night seemed like a no brainer as WEC champion, Mike Brown, won his title defense by way of head and arm choke and will now also take home a $7500 bonus as well. Following a brutal :18 second knockout, Damacio Page took home the KO of the Night bonus for his performance defeating top ten bantamweight, Marcus Galvao, who had to leave the cage on a stretcher after the fight. The Fight of the Night bonus landed in the hands of the last two 170lb fighters expected to compete in the WEC as the promotion has now done away with the division, with Johny Hendricks and Alex Serdyukov, each earning the extra payday.
