I've always been confused as to why people think Jardine should have been paid closer to what Chuck was paid. Chuck Liddel wasn't handed a $500,000 fight, he earned it. What had Jardine earned before this fight. He's lucky he even got the fight. Now he has a right to ask for more money on his next contract.
Fighters sign for 3-4 fights at 'x' amount of dollars per fight. Its like hockey, Sidney Crosby was the best hockey player in the league since his rookie season but he had to pay his dues and play a couple years to earn the top salary.
