But with my proposed finish bonus, he'd be missing out on an extra 10k if he finished dj

30/20 > 20/20

And really, that 10k is insignificant to the type of up he'd get from getting that title

I think that would have more to do with a lot of people not paying attention to non-top15 fighters.

There's a reason why the stands at arenas are mostly-barren until the main card begins.

I can't name an exciting non-top 15 fighter fight off the top of my head, but I don't really watch the pre-prelims either. It's not like they don't exist.

Neither Matt Grice nor Dennis Bermudez were top 15 when their epic war happened.

and how likely is that? Winning a decision against an elite fighter is tough enough, especially a champion. This structure would work for the low-level guys, but once you get into the elite and durable fighters, you'd just be screwing them out of cash.
