Headlines, headlines, read all about it...

It's all about the headlines and the drama they can put behind it. If the name carries you, ride it! Even if a no name beats a big name, in a convincing fashion, I'm sure their next fight negotiations would be substantially adjusted.

As for UFC paying poorly, it's capitalism in the USA babe! The owners know they have a good thing going. The fighters need the UFC more than the owners need them (at least for now). There is no other mma sport in the USA that can offer a fighter this type of return for what they love to do. That's why so many are looking to other countries for their big payday if the UFC doesn't oblige. Plus you may hear about the BJs and Pulvers that walked away with contract disputes as a contributing factor.

Squeetard has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Did you notice the winners got paid more than the losers? That is how it should be instead of boxing where someone gets 50 million to show up.

Great, you showed me an exception. Am I supposed to quote the rest of those stats now?

There is more than 1 exception. You pointed out a fact without going into detail about the multiple exceptions and he corrected you with a valid statement.
