This month, I'd like to start off in a fun corner of Brazil. --Flashback 2 days ago, Ronda wins big n' calls out Cyborg for a chance at Rousey's 135lb title; You remember that right? Here is Santos's response: For someone who didn't want to waste any breathe, I find it funny this is the most Cyborg talked in awhile & surprisingly the most scared she's seemed, though she has a good point.. Her health, after so much 'roid use, it may be hard to cut what she's gained . Coming closer to home, Gray Maynard has been scheduled to fight, against a fighter with a real chance to earn a higher rank winning, The fight will take place in Las Vegas @ UFC 155. Joe can prove if he's a choke artist or not, in more ways than one at the UFC's year end event on the 29th of December. I actually find this weird as Gray's last fight was NOT the most exciting; this speaks big of what the UFC thinks of Lauzon. If you would, let us Pat Stay-Moonwalk back to a familiar corner, 2 days ago, Week 14 of the Rap Music Prediction League, Strikeforce: Ronda vs Sarah. Wondering what they were paid??? Fighters in Strike-force get significantly less than the UFC (which is reasonable as the UFC makes much more money), and Ronald Souza surprisingly topped the Payroll. I will post from Highest paid to lowest, all wins including a WIN BONUS, I will state otherwise: Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza: $94,000 Ronda Rousey: $40,000 Miesha Tate: $38,000 Tarec Saffiedine: $35,000 Ovince St. Preux: $34,000 Sarah Kaufman: $17,000 (no bonus, she lost Rousey) Derek Brunson: $13,000 (no bonus, he lost to Souza) Roger Bowling: $10,000 (no bonus, he lost to Saffiedine) Lumumba Sayers: $7,000 (no bonus, he lost to Smith) Anthony Smith: $6,000 Julie Kedzie: $5,000 (no bonus, she lost to Tate) I have to admit, I'm a wii-bit surprised Ronda isn't making at LEAST a hundred Grand... Either way this is probably big money to her compared to the Olympics. It just really goes to show you Female MMA is really in the early stages. Other than that, I actually really like Strikeforce's payouts, you REALLY need that win bonus to get the sick payday, or the average UFC check, and as you see it always provides us with entertaining fights. Thoughts??
