    Definitely seeing a trend towards higher UFC payouts in the past few months, especially for the 2nd tier “almost superstar” fighters. Love the incentives too …. so much more money available is you come to fight, win, and really bring it. It just makes sense.

  • fanoftna33 says:

    It looks like the ufc will tell us how Gonzaga is back to form becaus he beat another fighter in his octagon debut(after kicking himvery hard in the jewles).

  • edub says:

    I didnt know they gave Thiago Silva a bonus also. He isnt listed on articles on other sites as recieving a bonus.

  • moosebaby02 says:

    hey fanoftna33 you do what you gotta do for the win right? i really think he did it on purpose

  • Persian_Prince says:

    wow, Krzystzof only 8000?!! and gonzaga 120′ for beating up another nobody! somebody must really love gonzaga in the ufc!

  • xtreme_machine says:

    Nog deserved all that money

    and Damn half a million

    Team Black House 2 vs Xtreme Couture 0

    Silva/Nog Griffin/Couture

  • I hope they give Tuchscherer a bonus for continuing to fight instead of taking the DQ. That man deserves a little something extra for that one.

    Chris leben sucks get rid of him I hope my mission is a success.
