It's not that he was a top contender. Who else does the UFC have to put in front of Sylvia? I guarantee if Monson fought more in the UFC he would get paid way more. Kind of a seniority thing I'm assuiming

Very true, he's a foot smaller, #1 contender, and puts up a great fight and gets barely anymore than some of the fighters debuting...what a joke.

Good thread

Those are quite the difference in pay between the fighters.
What do you think the pay is for other fighters at the other companies such as IFC, WFA, & Pride?

Monson got ripped off and so did GSP, why the hell should the winner of a title match get less than the loser, I don't care what his name is.

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