    Some points I have problems with:

    Mark Coleman- I understand hes a legend and all but seriously why would this guy get a guaranteed 50 grand to fight. Hes not gonna be a title contender.

    Frank Mir- Only a guaranteed 45 grand in the main event of the “Biggest mma event in history”. I mean that is over 100 gs less than Bisping…

    Michael Bisping- Really? I understand a lot of people picked the upset( I did… Im an idiot.) and hes a huge draw in england but come on.

    Dong Hyun Kim- Is he supposed to be their big draw in asia. 29 gs is too much for a guy who is not exciting and most likely gonna be a journeyman.

    Frank Mir’s salary is his own fault. Maybe he should get a new agent or deal. He has good marketability still with potential matchups with good heavyweight fighters. I hope the UFC doesn’t push a third fight because Lesnar showed me is at another level. I thought before the fight that a second fight with Randy would be great, but now its making a lot of people wonder if its worth it. Mir should definately be getting paid more even with a loss.

    What is wrong is that without the 150K bonus Hendo’s base salary was 50K less than Bisping’s. I know he is the UFC’s UK poster child, I just don’t like him that much ever since the Hammil fight and think based on his performances in the cage he is overpaid.

    LMAO at the fact that Mark Coleman got paid $100,000. And Frank Mir gets a measly $45,000??? Wow, that’s crazy!

    I really do want the UFC to come out with a veteran or a senior or a hall of fame division. Something so that we can see the old heads fight and it still be kind of cool. Cuz Mark Coleman will never be a top-tier fighter again, but I still kind of like seeing him fight. I’d like to see Coleman vs. Severn.
