It appears Rich Franklin is stuck on a crap contract. When he was champion, GSP was still making more than him. Now that he no longer has the title, Dana White might screw him with another shit contract. But i think GSP deserves a good contract, he's exciting to watch, win or lose.

I really don't think hughes hurt him
I can't agree with keeping a fighter hungry this way! No wonder half these guys can't strike with Silva, most have day jobs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So by looking at those numbers, it is pretty clear why some guys will fight as much as possible and even if there not healthy they will get in the ring. They have no choice, most of these guys make garbage money compared to what they deserve IMO.

lol.. It's true in a way.. but If their good enough, they have sponsors, lots of them have clothing they sell (pa99.tv etc.),and most likely they train for free and stay in hotels and stuff for free, but they arn't making the type of money they should be. I'm sure one day it's going to be a lot bigger
