ESPECIALLY given the fact that the UFC has put the kibosh on a lot of fighters sponsorhip opportunities.
but the guys on the undercard weren't part of the PPV, so they weren't drawing anyone to watch the PPV or get them ... I hear what you are saying, but why pay someone more because UFC 100 is going to be a huge PPV, when the chance they are actually shown on the PPV is slim to none?
