    Lauzon wasn't pulling crazy money with his contracts iirc, and he was pretty much a journeyman his entire UFC tenure, but he got a TON of performance bonuses and had a lot of fights.

    Also has a career outside of fighting. I don't think he'll get mentioned so I'll choose him.

    Side note I don't know if any non champions are truly "set for life".

    Hendo won a Pride Welterweight championship (at the time Pride was as big or bigger than the UFC). If that doesn't count, you'd have to include Fedor, Wand and Cro-cop on your list.

    Pride was bigger than the UFC until 2007, and then they folded.
