Here is what I mean about the pay differences

-Matt Serra ($110,000) def. Chris Lytle ($10,000) to win the TUF 4 Welterweight final.

-Travis Lutter ($110,000) def. Patrick Cote ($10,000) to win the TUF 4 Middleweight final.

-Jorge Rivera ($20,000) def. Edwin Dewees ($10,000) in the television opener.

-Din Thomas ($20,000) def. Rich Clementi ($10,000) in the other main card bout.

-Scott Smith ($20,000) def. Pete Sell ($10,000) in a preliminary bout that aired during the television broadcast.

-Charles McCarthy ($20,000) def. Gideon Ray ($10,000) in a preliminary bout.

-Pete Spratt ($20,000) def. Jeremy Jackson ($10,000) in a preliminary bout.

-Martin Kampmann ($15,000) def. Thales Leites ($3,000) in a preliminary bout that aired during the television broadcast. Here i the payouts forthe TUF Finale, why wouldthe UFC pay Jorge Rivera 20,000 but only pay Chris Lytle 10,000, after allhe made it to the finals, read the rest ofthe pays and you can see it clearly does not make sense.

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

This is not right in my opinion. The UFC could have split up the money much better. They have done messed up things like this in bigger fight situations before, I don't agree with it.

It's better than they'd get flipping burgers at McDonalds, where they should be. TUF Chumps and Bums.
