Wh y 100K base salary for Silva?

Don't get me wrong, I am all for MMA fighters making good cash but what's the justification for him more than doubling the base salaries of everyone else? I didn't even see him on the main card. Don't tell me heavier weights mean heftier salaries....

You didn't know that? They need to eat more, that's why they are paid more. That guy that made only $2,000, he only weights 85lbs.

Maybe they are banking on him destroying Kimbo. He destroys Kimbo, he steals all of Kimbo's fame, and they now have a big name HW that actually has skills.

I find it funny that that their highest paid fighter didn't even make the main card. What are they doing over there...?

My guess is that he is an actual legitimate fighter, compared to most of their roster and they are making sure he stays put. Kimbo is their moneymaker, but Silva is their legitimacy.

I like the fact that a legitimate fighter in a small organization is being paid well.

Hopefully Jake, and Robbie being the other title holders are also being taken care of.

With Shaw stepping down I wonder if Kimbo will receive a well deserved pay cut.

EDIT: They are probably paying Silva so good so he doesn't feel like this........http://www.mmaforum.com/ufc/41168-hu...fight-ufc.html
