I bet they are eager for endorsement money.

Watch those salaries rise in the years to come.

Thats fuckin crazy! Rich Franklin broke both his hand and foot and will be out several months for rehab and he only gets $34k!? Fuck that. They take more physical contact than any other sport, but are getting screwed on pay. I guess it will need more exposure to increase the purses for the fighters.

Something to consider: That event made over $3,000,000 at the gate and had an estimated 350,000 buys on PPV @ $39.95 ($13,982,500) for a total of $16,982,500 net profit. What their gross profit was....I'd sure like to know, but is seems like somebody is getting screwed here.

Rich got screwed on his contract. He went to Japan and got ko'd. Came back to UFC and signed a 6 fight deal for cheap. He will get a huge pay increase once this contract is over.

I'm really new to the sport and I seen the new ultimate fighter 3 reality show trailer and was wondering if someone could post a tito-shamrock fight.

On a side note, I wish they would bring back the old style introductions. Yes it is kind of WWE but it makes it more fun and gets the fight hyped a bit more before it gets started.
