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.




FFL 3rd +90
Mauricio "Shogun" Rua
Demian Maia
Martin Kampmann
Nate Diaz

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.

Favourite Fighters:

Dan 'The Outlaw' Hardy
Anderson 'The Spider' Silva
Renato 'Babalu' Sobral
Michael 'The Count' Bisping
Thiago 'The Pitbull' Alves
Kenny 'Kenflo' Florian
Quinton 'Rampage' Jackson

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.

Favorite Fighters:
1.GSP
2.Shinya Aoki
3.Miguel Torres
4.Lyoto Machida
5.Kenny Florian

No, the FOTN bonus is included in the 55,000

Fun trivia: In danish "kamp" means "match" or "fight". So Martin Kampmann really lives up to his name.
