Pablo just got a huge incentive to finish every fight he has by insane sub. $8K pre-bonus, damn.

Mark Homnick getting 6,000 to be a co-main event in the biggest event in UFC history is inexcuseable.

Abso-fooking-lutely.

Still, after his performance, I expect his next fight to be far better rewarded.

Thanks for the info Coops.

6k$ for Hominick without the bonus? Wow, he was lucky there wasn't a full out slug fest on the card.?

Wow, Garza and Hominick sure had an unusually good payday. I hope they keep the bonuses that high so guys will try to finish more.

It is not inexcusable. That's the amount of money that they signed for in their contract.

Just because he's in the co-main even doesn't mean they are going to suddenly re-work his contract.

He's getting paid anyway, not like the guy was actually making 6k for a co-main event.

Its embarrassing to see guys only get 4,000 dollars for a fight. And your right about hominick only making 2,000 dollars more then a guy who fights first and a guy who is in the co-main event. Im not sure how these guys survive on that money. I know sponsors and stuff but still.
