Does it kill anyone besides me that Franklin pulled $34,000 to headline the show...St. Pierre pulled 12 G more.  Sucks to sign a 6-7 fight contract coming off a loss.

I thought Chuck and Randy got a % of PPV sales, could be wrong.  UFC hasn't stepped up the pay scale and more people are watching now than ever before.

That is the point of a busniess, it sucks for fighters true but think about it from an owners stand point they are making a lot more money than ever before, pretty smart huh

Personally, Rich Franklin was THE draw on that card.  Yeah GSP and BJ are good too but come on, how many everyday people know GSP or BJ that watch TV and PPV?  Rich Franklin is damn near a name everyone knows that has turned on a TV!!!  He got robbed plain and simple!  I think he should have got at least double that ALONG WITH compensation for breaking his hand and not stopping!!!!!!  Dana and Lorenzo are getting theirs, why not take care of the guys putting their nuts on the line!!!  Melt down comming, I better stop...

Franklin has been really classy about it and said that he will stick to the contract that he agreed to.








Of course, Dana may be putting that out as UFC propaganda Grin
