Does anyone know how much Pettis was making in the UFC?

Crazy that Cyborg is earning half of what she was paid in the UFC, and they can claim sponsirs will be greater but no way they fill that shortfall. She was still sponsored by many companies whilst in the UFC, just no fight day visibility. There was talk recently that fighters get more sponsors now than before because of the use of social media to promote rather than fight day. Anyhoo, crazy how poorly she's paid here.

Pettis too, he chose to refuse a deal in the UFC, so how is he being paid less too? I wonder if there is a 'signing on' fee involved here?

As for how does someone get paid $1500, Bellator are known to pay as little as $250 to fighters on the undercard. Coker tried to explain it as they are giving them a chance to get a contract basically, in the past as an excuse! Check it here https://www.mmafighting.com/2018/3/11/17105532/click-debate-why-does-bellators-pay-structure-look-different-than-ufc-scott-coker-explains

There is no way....no fricken way a "professional" fighter should be making that little to fight for a major organization.  that's absolutely fucking embarrassing. Having said that, it is there choice, it doesn't affect me so let them fight it out with the orgs.

It is absolutely ludicrous they get paid this badly, and they really don't have too many choices but to take the shit money on offer if they want to succeed in the sport...….at least they do unless they get the fucking finger out and unionise. They're all so fucking stupid.

Kevin Ferguson Jr. will square off against Kaheem Murray in a 160-pound catchweight affair at Bellator 241.

Well at least Scott Coker is on to Rampage and his seemingly lack of preparation for recent fights


“Rampage, I think he’s got to figure out what weight class he wants to fight at,” Coker said. “That’s really what it comes down to. We fulfilled our obligation with him and we’re still talking to his manager. We have a good relationship with him and Tiki (Ghosn), and it’s just going to be like: Does he really want to do this? Does he really want to go out there and throw down? Because there’s times in a fighter’s career where it’s like, ‘That’s it.’ They’ve done everything they can in the sport.

“Rampage is a legend. He’s already done it all. He doesn’t have anything to prove to anybody, including myself. I think that’s something we’ll have a conversation with him but Tiki is saying he wants to go back down to 205. If he’s really serious about taking another stab at it. We’ll definitely have that conversation.”

Yea, he's a glorified Bob Sapp at this point, just embarrassing himself for the most part.

Speaking of Bellator is Dillon Danis ever going to fight again? Or is he just going to tell the world he's basically the world champion after his 2 wins.

No kidding, Is he ever going to fight again or just declare himself Goat with winning any real fights? He is a guy I want to watch fight just to see him lose.

Apparently Rumble Johnson has signed with Bellator and will be fighting at 205.....presumably getting a title shot in the near future

Hard to say. I would think Rumble would be a decent draw especially at 205 where the once mighty division has fallen on some hard times. Perhaps he was asking for too much money but then I can't really see Bellator giving him more than the UFC would have

Strange for sure, 205 is wide open depending on what happens with the whole Yan-Izzy Jones situation of course.

I mean, assuming Rumble comes back as good as he was.....and thats a pretty big assumption, he becomes the LHW champ as long as JJ stays at HW IMHO....in Bellator I can't see Davis beating him, I can't see Bader beating him, I can't see Anderson beating him.....I don't know enough about Nemkov to offer up an opinion on him

I think in a perfect world they want a Bader/Rumble final with this set up but I'm not sure why they wouldn't be drooling over a Rumble/Romero final????

Mike gets shit on big time but I have always liked his PBP and love his energy.
Mauro Renallo is doing the PBP now and I can't stand his calling of fights

Rumble advances in GP after getting rocked and dropped in his fight. Goes on to fight Nemkov in the semi's and fights for the title.
