What the hell are u talking about I'm not *****ing at all. I was just saying that these guys deserve more and once MMA is as popular as football they will.

You should really pay more attention before you start *****ing. Anyways when you choose to post your childish messages I'll just ignore them, just wanted to clear up to everyone that I am not *****ing.

P.S Mod's why isn't this guy banned yet?

Why be such a sissy about it? Poor guys? What poor guys? They are not exploited by anyone other than themselves. If what they are getting paid is not enough, then they are exploiting themselves. They have the choice to fight. No reason to call them poor guys. Those poor guys are fighting for a dream. I am sure most of them are fighting to cheap when starting out because they want to make it big one day. For those "poor guys" getting exploited, I say congrats! You choose to do it, you deserve it!

They are making good money. When they are getting short changed, you will not see UFC holding fights because the fighters will leave.
There are other costs dude, but you can't tell me the UFC's budget is so tight they can only afford to pay Franklin $32 000 to fight ... these guys are giving up their lives, their faces, potentially their health ... many of them travel all around the country seeking training, they give up their jobs, etc. It's bull ... they just pay like crap because they know fighters would fight for pure recognition anyway ... they get away with it so they do it. If you don't think the execs and the masterminds behind the UFC aren't making a killing on the backs of these fighters, think again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
