    Guys, the reason the bonuses are all over the place is simple because certain fighters made better decisions when negotiating their contracts. There’s no union, so this will be the case until that changes!

  2. doc says:

    Fighters Union will destroy the sport. People will want the same pay for giving snoozefest performances.

    Unions are terrible. They were started with good intentions, but are now exploited by the lazy fuckers that push for them.

    Not everybody will act with integrity and fight to entertain. Union is a bad idea.

  3. The natural says:

    Yes a union might not b an answer but that pay is disgusting to the point were fox might get in trouble. Every wage up there should have an extra 0 at the end of it
