That is the reason certain fighters when decisions that they shouldn’t have, and some fighters argument losses due to the same reason. Remember Masvidal losing to Al iaQuinta, he was at a higher rate of pay most likely due to his tenure and giving him a loss would lower his value. Hendrix and his bad rep with weight cutting made him a liability Then there are fighters who got a lucky streak and are protected and others sacrificed at their hands. Everyone can see that cowboy was paid to not fight back. Now the rematch is already being set up for Reyes ..watch , it’s gonna happen.
