What are people expecting for McCall? 20k a fight? The guy is 0-2 with 1 draw in the UFC, and 1-2 in the WEC. He's terrible and going to get dropped very soon at this rate. Contracts start out at 8k to show, with a 8k win bonus. I'm shocked they have him signed at 9k/9k.
Overeem a newcomer? MMA exists outside of the UFC, and he has a proven track record. Ian McCall is terrible? I stopped reading after that, do some research.
