Wow Riggs contract must be the equivalent of an all in with your mortgage poker bet ... $5000 to show and $95000 to win?

Good for him he's on a nice winning streak, second highest payout on a card that includes multiple champs and former champs without ever having held a belt himself.

Pretty poor pay scale overall though, Bellator and UFC are really two peas in a pod. Like Coke / Pepsi, McD / BK, Democrats / Republicans etc. WSOF seems better for how small a show they are and the level of fighters they have, most of their winners break 5 figures at least.

You need to remember when comparing pay scales that due to less people watching they are not getting the sponsorship money they would get in the UFC either.
