Why the hell does Bisping get payed more than everyone except Brock, GSP and Hendo?

I don't get it.
If the figures INCLUDE bonuses, Bisping was paid more than Hendo, in terms of plain purse. Hendo made more only because of the win bonus.

Crazy. Hendo showed why he deserved MUCH more than Bisping.

But it doesn't make it right when the PPV take on UFC 100 was in the hundreds of millions--giving even the lowest fighter on the card a mere $5,000 is awfully, awfully cheap. I know there are hundreds if not thousands of guys lined up to get a chance to make that mere $5,000, but given the obscene amount of money that these fighters pull in for Dana and the UFC, I for one, think that a little better compensation is in order. 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?

Being the on the undercard/not being on air, is moot just the fighters overall salaries in general, its been this way for a long time a couple guys at the top making all the jack and the guys at the bottom are making crap. In some respects it pay for performance/star power, and I understand that, but my point is there should be a better minimum pay scale for the fighters given how much money is rolling in. And again clamping down on the role of sponsors really hurts the guys at the bottom of the food chain still struggling to get by.

He's arrogant, as well, and only slightly more likeable than Bisping.
