    Honestly I'm surprised Rashad and Jones get paid so evenly. Obviously the next time Jon goes in to sign a contract he is getting a helluva raise, but him and Evans are on an equal stature $$$ wise as of now.

    Che Mills looked in great shape...But that was all, I'm almost interested to see if he is actually good; Rothwell making over 100g's is surprising to me, though half of it was his win bonus, and they were probably hoping Schaub would pull it out :p.

    Bocek pulled a pretty paycheck for a small-time kid out of Toronto that now made it big. I don't think to much people follow him to hard (myself included) but just under 50 grand must of been nice.

    I think the worst pay was probably Chadd Griggs; 27, 000 really? Without winning he earned that, which leads me to believe they thought he could knock some heads. Come on I must not of been the only one to see those Mutton Chops were no good!

    How could you wonder whats up with Mcdonald's paycheck but not like Bocek's? Micheal is a young gun...REALLY young, 21! Only had 4 fights in the UFC so far, and judging by his performance during 145, when he resigns he will be getting a pay increase :p. :COD:

    Eddie Yagin hasn't fought in anything other then side promotions the last couple years; lost his octagon debut, and recently won a close 1 with Mark (Hominick). He wasn't coming in on a 5 fight win streak or anything like that. :biggrin:

    Bocek is a 30 year old MMA Veteran of the Lightweight division. He has only 4 losses (all coming in the UFC) and only 1 is to a fighter who hasn't held the belt or fought for the contender-ship (Mac Danzig). He has 7 wins inside the Octagon, and has went on 2 and 3 fight win streaks, never more then 1 loss at a time. I think he earned his pay as he is only contracted to make 23, 000. HE himself has to EARN that 46, 000 by winning. 5 Years in the UFC does that.
