    Harsh digits for getting choked out. He probably needs checkups, this will not cover it.

    Tibau and Norman Parkes purses from Boston put together are almost the same as the entire wsof card payout.

    I bet Joe Condon wishes WSOF had a performance bonus. The best he can hope for is a Boost Mobile phone at the next show.

    Gleison Tibau made more than both headliners combined. Let that sink in.

    Condon didn't get a win bonus for stepping in on a week's notice and finishing an undefeated fighter?

    UFC is slave labor!!!!!111111

    Show this to the fighter pay complainers. This sport doesn't pay well; the UFC treats its guys pretty well compared to the competition. $960 for a guy who had a taste of the big league (Cella)...brutal.

    If I make it to WSOF I can make a weeks worth of money in a day! I just have to fight once every week then I am all good. Very appealing career path, I'm gonna go train right now!

    lol @ Adam Cella making $900. I guess that's a decent pay day if you do it recreationally as a side hobbie, provided you don't get any injuries.

    In the end, he probably lost money with this fight after taxes, coaches, travel, etc. Somebody who comes from St. Louis to fight in Nevada for pretty much what a McDonald's employee gets after 2 weeks before taxes may just be trying to get his foot in the door with a "big org".

    There's no rhyme or reason to their ratings, but it's good to see Moraes headlined one of their highest rated shows.
