    This isn't even a conversation.
    No one gave a flying f about the ufc here before bisping.
    We don't like yank things.
    Football and boxing is what brits do.
    That's why all our fighters are boxers.
    When bisping joined the ufc everyone was talking about it.
    I remember it like yesterday.

    You quoted my post saying Poirier has been around longer than Gastelum.

    That's why I mentioned he got 100k more than Gastelum.

    I don't know and I didn't say that.
    But his last pay was from headlining a ppv and nowhere near this amount of pay.

    For argument sake, say this is true. Would he have gone to another organization if they paid him what others with his ranking and record were getting? No. The issue is the special treatment he got. Did they have to pay Israel 350K? No. That's why I said they seem to have a hard on now for African fighters like they did British fighters.

    I guess Ari is not as good a manager as some might have you believe.

    Man Kelvin put on a hell of a show. No reason for you to be disappointed in your guy. Shit was intense.

    Yeah I'm not disputing that.
    I'm disputing that all the cards would have sold the same without him.
    They've seen what a star in a niche region can bring them.
    From bisping to Conor and now they're trying to build Rob and Israel.

    That's higher base pay than guys like Cerrone get... Wtf lol, Cerrone who has the most wins in UFC history, most finishes, most bonuses etc.. Gets less than a guy who signed with the promotion in 2018... Cerrone must have some terrible negotiation skills.

    I'd be pissed with my agent if I was a real champ and some newbie was getting paid the same as me

    Cerrone doesn't know what the word negotiation means. They tell him to jump, and he asks how high. He's been doing it his whole career.

    I specifically pointed out how much boxers are making to fight on ESPN because the UFC is now in business with that company.
