Vera is just trying to get more money. He only got 40 000 in his last fight and he either wants to get mor form another org or just pressure the UFC into paying him more. I want to see him Tim next year so hopefully they both sign. Tim Sylvia is probably just tryin to get some gay deal where he is the main event everytime he fights or something. I hope he doesnt leave cause I want to see him lose that belt.

I really dont think one bit that Cro Cop is going to come to the UFC. I am so sure that he is not going to. He has said before that he only wants to fight the best in the world and they arent in the UFC. He is not going to leave Pride without first having a rematch with Fedor and maybe another fight with Big Nog.

only 40,000? it was his 4th fight and theres no reason for dana to throw out big bucks to someone who hasnt proven a whole lot especially if he's looking to sign aleks, rampage, lindland, cro cop, and herring.

I'd like to see him thrown to the Wolves if Cro Cop signs. At that point he might be wise to leave the UFC and join some other organization.

Fedor already signed a new 2 year deal with Pride.

40k is not a lot of money when one should be the top of a HW class to a multi-million dollar fighting company. The PPVs alone net the UFC 20-30 million a pop. Paying guys 12-40K a fight is like Target paying $8 an hour and crappy health insurance to cashiers who a 40hr work week. The fight business is far too lucrative an industry for fans and fighters alike accept the crap wages the UFC has been infamous for paying guys to make the company millions.
