    Regardless, isn't it typical for main events to get PPV points?

    I think this is a great point. I look at it the same way I look at employee compensation in desk work: Wandy has developed a name over years and his draw ability is consistent so it's factored into his show/win money. Sonnen isn't an immediate draw without hyping the fight, so he's paid per his ability to do so, with points being performance pay.

    I'm under the impression that lesnar was getting PPV percentages when he was 1-0 and not even top 100. I believe rampage was getting % on his way out the door, and he certainly wasn't close to at that point. It would not surprise me if Rich Franklin or Forrest Griffin get points.

    Again, I'm not arguing that Wandi should be paid more than sonnen. But I can't see giving chael a percentage without giving it to Wandi as well.

    If you're ranking Bisping in the top 10, and not Wanderlei, your ranking system is flawed.

    I was under the impression that only main evetns - not co-main events got ppv points (unless the co main event was a title fight). Im sure if the ppv does well the ufc kicks people extra money but I don't think it would be in their fighter contract.

    Whatcha gonna do Brother, when the New World Order destroys you?

    This is off topic, but I think maybe you should make a little change in your signature.
    I guess the guy's surname is Iglesias and not Inglesias, because in spanish "ingle" means groin, so you know, the inglesias thing is kinda funny.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff

    Wanderlei has a mansion in Vegas and Brazil. Guy's totally broke.

    Even if their compensation for win/show is significantly different ?
