    That's very low pay for a main event. And some people are tired of fighters complaining about low pay (Paige got paid $43k).

    Her bonus was 15k only ? Fuck. That's some bullshit.

    It seems you get paid from how much popular you are.

    She needs to call GSP cause that is just awful, win in main event of Fox card. Think MMAAA just won another member.

    Why pay the world-talent guys hundreds of thousands of dollars when you can throw 15k at an attractive woman and get better TV ratings? #wmebless #hollywoodelite #liberalismwillbethedeathofmma

    Have we heard if the new owners still allow Dana to hand out bucket loads of cash back stage for great performances???

    This is why fighters like Ferguson are demanding proper pay as soon as they have a little leverage. The UFC has been cheating fighters out of money since the start of the organization.

    I wonder how much she was left with after taking into account her expenses.

    So, what you're saying is the UFC should change it's name to "Ultimate Female Combat"?
