Don't forget that these guys can rework their contracts when they win the belt. Jones did it, and most recently Bendo when be found out how much Gil was making.

No matter what, if you are an exciting fighter and you win a majority of your fights, the UFC will take care of you. These 8 fight contracts prevent fighters with greedy managers to start demanding crazy high pay after a few good wins. Its very smart on the UFC's part. People always complain about the way the UFC does business, but they are the only company that's been able to survive, let alone thrive.

If you go on a 4 fight win streak in impressive fashion you should be able to renegotiate your contract, not get a 5k pay bump for each win.
Reminds me of the Philadelphia Eagles cutting a star wide receiver in Desean Jackson today after he signed a 51 M contract in 2012 for 5 years. These 8 fight deals mean nothing. The UFC can cut you anytime they please. Ask Okami, Fitch and others who were in the top ten but got cut. Well said man.
