    So does Chris Weidman get a bump in pay as a champ and for the rematch (or as DW has been billing it, the biggest fight in UFC history) or does he get stuck with his current negotiated contract pay?

    Does anyone know if being the champ gets you an automatic pay bump?

    Cheapest title contender ever. Cha-ching!

    Yeah, if Weidman wins I'd like to think that he'd receive some form of, how you say, extra compensation.

    I feel your disdain on the Anderson/Ed Soares thing. Anderson's the ventriloquist, Ed Soares is the dummy.

    But consider this, Anderson probably makes as much if not more $$$ from sponsors outside the UFC than the UFC itself (I'm aware that he earns points on the PPV package). All the stalling you get from Ed Soares and Anderson is designed to extend his career, not necessarily to earn more money per fight. At this point Anderson only has to defend the belt once a year, and that nets him endorsements that come pouring in year-round.

    I'm not going to stop you if you want to shoot Ed Soares in the balls, but these guys know exactly what they're doing. It might not be great for the sport, or great for the fans, but it works for them.
