So I'm curious to see what Dana White and the Zuffa crew will do with fighters like Mousasi who are signed to very large un-Zuffa like contracts in Strikeforce. For instance at "Marquardt vs. Saffiedine" there were a few guys I would question. Barnett - 250k Mousasi - 175k Gracie - almost 47k base + win bonus Cormier - 60k + win bonus Souza - 72.5k + win bonus Tim Kennedy - 55k + win bonus These are generally not huge numbers but they are all higher than Zuffa average and in some cases higher than the fighter is arguably worth in comparison to their UFC counterparts. Cormier, Gracie, and Souza are all almost certainly safe regardless of pay. But what about the others? Would Barnett take a pay cut to stay in the UFC.. almost certainly no, but can anyone else even attempt to pay that much? Is Kennedy worth paying the big bucks? If he is it's only because of his military history, not because he is anywhere near top 15. And Mousasi, hugely unproven and they're expected to pay him almost 200k? What does everyone else think?
