    Volkov got 40k to show and it was the FUCKING MAIN EVENT!
    WTF is this shit?!

    Even with the 50k bonus Volkov still got paid 3 times less than Werdum (who lost) and even less than Jimi (who also lost)! WTF?!

    Don't give a shit. Just put all the money in a big brown bag and hand it over to the last man standing.

    That’s a major raise from the 14K he got in his last fight against Struve.

    little surprised at volkov's pay compared relatively to other top HW's but I guess he is pretty much an unknown among casuals

    Volkov will get a huge raise soon I guess, most started low. And Werdum is a former champ.
