    Finally, a fighter with a decent name is joining the roster of Moosin: God of War.

    Would love to see him in Bellator. I like it when UFC is losing power.

    he should have accepted UFC offer, many people start with bad paycheck but eventually get good salary (with win)

    I feel for these guys, I know that a monopoly is never good and that having strong competition can also be better for the product as well as for the fighters. But as a fight fan I just hate the idea of the talentpool being divided into multiple organizations where we wont see the best fight eachother.

    I hope he stays with the UFC because I want the best fighters to fight the best. Dana's argument for letting Benson go was essentially that he's on the downside of his career. The same can't be said for Sterling. He might be the best Bantwamweight in the world already, and if not, he could be soon. I do think the UFC will keep him.

    He is finishing good fighters, he is already top t in his division and fighting "beasts" and was offered quite less than sage who just cam to the ufc, has less skills and is fighting bums

    Hopefully the UFC paid the man. I hate the penny pinchers over at Zuffa, but I still like seeing the best perform in the UFC. It's still the best place to fight to have your profile raised.

    he should concentrate on himself, not on what others are getting. Sterling would have gotten better payment eventually, but he decided to be vocal about that, you have to be patient, getting 20/20 contract next is not bad at all, there is a possibility of a bonus and 20/20 means rising after win. And he is not a big draw, people have interest in him only because he is undefeated

    I bet he signed with Bellator with options to fight in Russia/Europe and Asia.

    His teammate Al Iaquinta has 9 UFC fights and is getting 23K, and Sterling was offered 20K after 4 UFC fights

    I love Sterling, but he needs to realise that the UFC's offer is hands down the best he's gonna get. He doesn't have the profile of a former UFC champ/well-known veteran to make Bellator pay him more, then what's left?

    If he still thinks the UFC's offer is too low, then a different career is needed coz he isn't getting a bigger offer elsewhere.
