He will never be a contender coming in in that kind of shape.
What you just said makes no sense considering Struve got paid more lol...

Maybe if he'd start taking MMA seriously and stop being a lazy ******* slob his pay would go up. Dana is trying to short him so he has less money for whoppers.

Quinton and Mir both sell a shitload of PPVs with their mouths, not to mention Mir is a 2 time champ (one interim, one full) and Quinton was the PRIDE LHW champ and UFC LHW champ (which he unified) and one of the few men to successfully defend the LHW title dominantly.

Plus GSP get's paid way more than 250K doesn't he? I could've sworn he got at least $500k at one point. (After some research, he got $400k for beating BJ, $500k and a hummer for beating Hughes and $400k for beating Shields. Possibly as much as $2.5 MILLION including PPV cut.)

1. Stefan Struve is 4 wins 2 losses in his last 6 fights.

2. Roy Nelson is 2 wins 4 losses in his last 6 fights.

3. Struve comes in shape.

4. Nelson comes in Obese.

5. Struve is 23 and has, potentially, a long future in MMA (he is 11 years younger than Nelson).

6. Nelson is 34 (average age of a UFC fighter is 29.5 ) and has very little chance of a future in MMA, especially as he is unlikely to lose the weight he needs.

7. Only one UFC belt holder is older than 30 (Anderson Silva).

8. Use your head before you tell someone that what they have written makes no sense.

Poor Nelson only making 15k. I hope his sponsors are treating him good.

15k wouldn't cover his food expenses for a month.

Seriously doubt that. There's a reason he's so successful, and being financially sensible is most likely one of those reasons.

Do you think it's too much or too little pay though? Personally I think he's extremely underpaid. He puts on exciting fights, just gets bored to death by Storry.

It is not good for the sport...actually, it makes a mockery of it. It is sad to see talent wasted.
It's all well and good being competitive come fight night, but a different matter entirely when it comes to living day to day. He'll never keep that weight off if he's not eating semi-healthy all the time. I can only imagine what he's gorging on to be so heavy.

And yes he KOed Struve but everybody is doing that these days and he got absolutely worked against actual opponents like Mir and JDS. Nelson is an ugly, unskilled, fat **** who should be a middleweight so he has no right to complain about anything.
Stupid statement!! He's been knocked out by Nelson and Browne recently. How is that "everybody these days"??

Well those TUF contracts are 6 figure apparently, so that would be base pay. If he's getting 15k base pay per fight then its a minimum 7 fight deal. That doesn't add up to me....
