I think it's ridiculous that the smaller athletes get paid MUCH less. I'm glad that the StrikeForce fighters are getting a decent amount, but it comes down to how much of a draw you are: eg, Cung Le got $150,000. Fair enough, but then you compare him with a more complete Mixed Martial Artist like Donald Cerrone who only got $24,000 ($12,000 win bonus) - not fair. Ah well, no use complaining about it, but it does mean that they can't train full-time because on a salary such as this (even though they fight several times per year) alone does not suffice.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig
