As someone else eluded to, how can I guy like Leben, who is very one doimensional get 51000 base and Lauzon only 27000. Thankfully he lines his owns pockets by being the entertaining fighter he is.

A veteran like Varner getting payed that shit is a slap in the face.

Cain should be 200k to show 200k to win at least. He is a huge star.

The disparaging difference between top of the card and bottom of the card is what always gets me. I mean these up and comers, veterans and middle of the pack guys have to eat too.
I'm not trying to say these guys shouldn't be making more money, I want everyone to get paid and all that good stuff but this is the fight game. No one came to see Hollaway, Moraga, Cariaso, De Fries or anyone like that. In order to make money for yourself you have to make money for your company.
