blessssssssssssssss, He's like Joe Lauzon...only even more...put out.

The secret of Jens Pulvers success is the fact that he cant lose, and that must make it quite hard for anyone who manages to beat him outside of someone like BJ Penn. Alot of these younger fighters are able to compete because of the pioneering work of Pulver over the last decade, so many are extremely familiar with him.

scroll down and watch the interview

Dave, he got paid the most out of the event, but I wouldn't call it major...They all got paid jack IMO...Jens base was like 35k, Jorgenson got only 5k, faber and brown both got like 25k

judging by those salaries, it's obvious WEC is part of the UFC.

pulver getting paid the most makes no sense. i like the guy but gimme a break.

EDIT: i suppose what hes done for the past should earn him bigger paychecks now. but not the biggest (which is still little for some reason).

when jens was first signed to WEC they gave him a great contract because he was undefeated as a FW at that time. i'm sure if he got a new contract at this precise moment in time (4 losses in a row) they would give him a considerable cut in salary.

The younger fighters barely get paid at all. Anyone getting less than $3K to show in an organization as big as WEC is just wrong. Small shows are paying better than that.

Lets not turn this in to a post about fighter pay. Every fighter gets what they agree on. It may not be the best pay or even good pay. If they agree to fight for that amount then why should anyone else be pissed about it? I don't make as much as I would like or even want. However I agree to work for this amount. If I don't want to anymore I either need to move to another company, if there is not other company then I need to find a new job.
