    * It has got to suck to be the only champ on the card, fighting in the only title fight on the card and yet making no where near what some of the other fighters are earning.

    At least Mighty Mouse is making some bank. Good for Robbie Lawler though.

    He signed a NEW UFC contract in March.

    He's actually making about 20,000 less to show now than he did when he first came aboard.

    So, NO. He isn't.

    Jeez, might mouse is getting the short end of the stick on this one. Even if it is a not so popular division, paying a champ that little is a disgrace. I hope they are giving him some extra back stage money or something.

    Been in the UFC for a long time (8 years), has a winning record, most of his wins are finishes and rarely fights to a decision, and he fights on a regular basis against pretty much whoever they put in front of him.

    I'm by no means a big fan Guillard but aren't the above credentials justifying a solid paycheque ?

    I can see the argument of guys that fought deserving more then him, but not that he deserves less.
