Jardine also got FoTN bonus so that's even better for him.

How is Vera over paid? He gets 30k and got the other 30k for winning. He was getting paid way more than that at HW.

Another BIG payday for Rampage! as others have said it is good to see that Jardine is getting what he should be getting paid. What does stagger me though is that Rampage earns nearly as much as the other 19 fighters on the card put together. dude gets PAID.

Hes over payed compared to guys like Jardine. Jardine has beat chuck and forrest and after 8 fights in the UFC he was up to makeing 14k for fighting Wandy.

Who did Vera beat to deserve his money? A half crippled post accident Frank Mir? Big deal. After 5 fights in the ufc he made 100k to lose to tim sylvia. He was the most over rated fighter of the last 2 years and he should be down with the dudes makeing 10k to show up in my opinion.
