    Agreed - that guy is a tool. He's got an expression and look about him that is just begging for a beat down.

    Yeah...He already has the "Excuse Skills" part of MMA down like a pro. I was disappointed also. What is wrong with saying "I screwed up, didn't stick to a plan, and got my ass handed to me on a silver platter"?

    How sad was it that a brawler was climbing all over him like he was a jungle gym at the playground? He showed no ground defense and got choked out by a guy that admits he has no jui jitsu (Japanese, Brazilian, or Eskimo).

    I've see as low as 3 and I think maybe 2. Here is an archive: Payouts

If you put on a great fight and get the best sub/ko of the night there is a chance a lower paid fighter could walk away making close to 70-100k for one fight, (i.e. Warmachine at the TUF 6 finale). That is hardly chump change.

    So did your mom, girlfriend, and sister all do reports in high school also?

    Oh come on, you can't leave a herpes joke hanging in the air out there without expecting someone to come along and take it!

Sometimes the guy is just too tough and you can't finish him in 2 rounds but the fighter should be still rewarded for going out and giving it his all. So now they win just 10k for finishing the fight. Good job by the UFC and BK for putting up the money for the fighters.

    Ol' herpe neck was bummed. The dude they brought back is kind of a tard, too. The production changes aren't appealing for the most part, IMO.

    I heard the next fight will be sponsored by Valtrex.

    sucks for the guy with herpes. he really wanted to be there.

    as for the guy they brought back, bad decision imo. i woulda took multiple peolpe over him, but since theres only 1 pick i woulda took byrnes, cause he put in a good war against amir.

    as soon as rampage said he wanted the first pick i knew he was gonna pick CB. CB looks like a beast and im pretty sure hes gonna win the season.
