    It has happened quite a few times. Another one is how GSP/Fitch received the fight of the night when Maia/MacDonald clearly earned it. GSP/Fitch was barely a fight, it was just a one-sided beat down.

    And when some hack writer does a puff-piece on Georges resume, it will simply say he won "6 OTN bonuses" among all the other accolades, and there won't be any mention of Maia or MacDonald.

    two or three years from now, if she doesn't lose, they'll do the same thing with rousey.

    All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.

    And thus the hype machine continues.

    I agree with this. Plus, I'm sure Miller got the same amount in bonus money anyway. They just want Rousey to get the attention. I really wish Tate would have stood and traded with her, she seemed like she really hurt her a couple of times but then would shoot in just to get reversed. I couldn't figure out why her corner didn't tell her to stop grappling with Rousey between round 1 and 2.
