The main problem with Nate's points are that the UFC isn't the exclusive best-of-the-best league he's making it out to be. The UFC takes on fighters with embarrassingly few professional fights, and it basically gives those fighters what amounts to trial contracts.

Getting a UFC contract DOES NOT mean you've made it big or that you're worth "real money" yet.

It's either your reading comprehension needs work or you're just too lazy to read it...

Hopefully Bellator and WSOF will gain some traction and provide some competition. It'd be better for the fighters and for the fans.
I don't agree. I don't want to invest time on others and want just one place I can focus on. I certainly won't be watching Bellator or whatever no matter who they manage to get because its just too much.

He makes a lot of good points. Interesting to see how much he earned for his title fight against Franklin and compare that to Sara McMann's pay for her title fight this weekend against Rousey. Pretty crappy pay for a title fight but oh well.
