    So they have a hard on for African fighters now, like they had for British fighters?

    Bisping might have been the only overpaid fighter in the history of MMA.

    Why the hell does Gastelum get 150k and Adesanya, the new kid on the block who's been with the UFC less than a year 350k?

    {<huh}

    I mean not many fighters go 6-0 within 14
    Months of being with the UFC

    Have to give Israel some credit where it’s due

    And deserves every bit of it. He's exciting, charismatic, going to put asses in seats and is only getting better.

    Honestly the pay is normally shit. If he can negotiate a big pay day, then good for him. He gave a great 5 rounds and even though I wanted him to lose, he earned every penny.

    Dustin has been around years longer than Gastelum. That's the most surprising to me.

    I can't believe that Adesanya is getting that high of a base pay.

    Dustin and Kelvin are 2 UFC veterans, much more proven and they don't even get paid that much.

    Hell, Max is basically FW GOAT at this point... and he only gets paid that much.

    Well GAS won TUF

    So his base pay should have been 6 figures from the start

    Khalil Rountree: $70,000 (includes $35,000 win bonus)
    def. Eryk Anders: $50,000

    Considering the quality of Khalils performance, and the absolute beating Eryk took, that's a shocker.

    So, Khalil was on 35k for the fight. That's bullshit. There's no way he can be making a good living after expenses.

    That's myth. Not one card he was on wouldn't have sold the same gate and/or PPV without him. He was getting 275K+150K+ win bonus when champs were lucky to get 100K+100K.

    He just benefited greatly from the UFC favoring UK fighters for some reason.

    He deserves it all, dude has fought how many times this year? it's insane, he's putting in more work than anyone right now. Imagine when he gets some time off to really develop his grappling.

    6 figures awarded for TUF wins are over multiple fights, not one fight.

    Different agents won’t all get the same deal for their fighters than another may have. If you’re winning and remotely popular it’s up to your agent to get you paid.

    Afterall... That’s how he gets paid.

    That TUF contract is shit. He's was lucky to get off it on like his fifth fight and the improvement was like 30K+30K

    Your opinion doesn't equal fact. Your hatred of bisping also clouds your ability to accept reality.

    He headlined numerous cards while not being champ because he was in fact, a draw.
