    Great to see UFC agree to larger event bonuses for fighters. But it begs the question: do commentators also compete for performance of the night bonuses? I can swear at times it seems like DC is trying to compete with Rogan over best shilling award.

    There's a slim chance the bump is permanent if the card delivers. Slim.

    They compete to keep their jobs as they are on contracts.

    They have done this before. They used to base it event by event untill ppl kept bitching others were higher than others so they made it $50 across the board. Its been $25-100k before.

    Needs to be. It's been capped at 50k since 2013. That's 8 years without a raise essentially.

    it was a smart move all around.

    From the promotion from Tony. everyone.

    Whatever valid points the Diego situation brought up you can't really reward his coaches behavior.

    Out of the UFC talking heads I would say Rogan is the least "shilly." Rogan works for the UFC as a hobby and doesn't need to be there. You won't see any of the other guys criticizing the UFC for anything since that's their living. Rogan at least will sometimes state things that he wants changed. I love DC but he's a self admitted company man. Nothing wrong with that, like I said it's a good gig for him after retiring from commentating.

    Well this is definitive proof that them going public is influencing the behavior by the brass so the best thing the fighters can do at this point is continue to be publicly verbal about pay.
