Forrest Griffin that is nobody really special gets much more money. Cung Le who is not a Top 5 fighter or anything like that gets paid a lot.
Yes, but Silva's PPV cut must dwarf what Forrest makes. Plus, I wouldnt be surprised if Silva gets locker room bonuses.
Le's salary is due to what SF/Showtime was paying him. I guess he maintains the same salary. Plus, Cung Le is a good commodity to have because he can garner attention in the Asian markets such as China, Japan, and Philipines if they every go there.
