    The bonus begging that constantly goes on card after card is embarrassing. It makes the UFC look like some low rent sports organization.

    Pretty sure they make themselves look low rent. However, the idea is sound, incentivizing a go after it. Even with higher pay, I think fighters would do it.

    Unfortunately people like money, fighters are no exception. Besides making an example of the fighters asking for the bonus, things will continue as is.

    Then they should just get rid of all bonus and give these guys the pay they deserve.

    They should just give them free t-shirts and baseball caps.

    I think every KO and every submission should be rewarded with 1 FOTN bonus. That way their is never an argument of whose KO was better etc. I think the incentive to perform is a good idea but a KO is a KO in my opinion and a submission is a submission no matter how cool it was it ended in the same place so they all should be rewarded

    ...they aren't?
     
  10. There are no solutions, only trade-offs. You can get rid of it, but fighters would have less incentive to finish.

    simply tell all fighters to stop asking for bonuses on the mic after fights.

    solved.

    TS you have to have incentives in combat sports. I understand if that goes against your snowflake nature.

    There are already huge incentives to finish an opponent without bonuses.
