Shad/Overeem got a nice paycheck, especially for the peformances. Reem I can't understand getting THAT money. Rashad I totally can though. Aldo's base+win bonus is pretty nice. Wonder if Edgar would of got a +120k.
Ian has made it clear on the UG he was paid way more than reported.

Why is Rashad getting paid 300k? With performances like that, I don't even really care to see him compete again. Either he starts fighting again, instead of dancing around like a fool, or I'll start tuning him right out.

Rashad has headlined two cards that did a million buys, former champ and had one of the highest selling fights of 2012 against Bones.

Bugs me that a newcomer like Overroid is getting paid that much. I guess the UFC needed to offer him big money to secure the contract, or potentially lose him to a kickboxing promotion, but it's a slap in the face to everyone else.

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.

Seriously criminal. That's just taking advantage of the guy

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.

Reem has a lot of other options. more than other fighters because of his K-1.

Wow...Dana should just cut Rashad at that price. The guy hasn't really done jack in his last 3 fights. His fight with Phil Davis was a snooze-fest. He didn't throw anything against "Bones". And last night all he did was dance around.
