Forrest Griffin ($44,000) def. Mauricio "Shogun" Rua ($150,000)

Lol Mayweather made 3mill fighting Chop Chop and from what I remember...Chop Chop made more then everyone on that list except for Chuck. Damn! It ain't worth having your hands, arms, ankle broken and getting stitches for a few Gs

Dana White is a money robbing bastard who will eventually be the reason for the UFC's downfall.

exactly what i was thinking...........if im not mistaken Margarito made $1.5 Mill for his last fight alone, not sure what Cotto made.........this whole card put together is only $954,000

Boxers make the real money and Danas robbing these poor guys

Gotta remember there's a lot of under the table money as well.

Reason being that Dana doesn't like price competitions.
