    This is off subject, but did anyone see the payouts to the Dynamite fighters. They put the UFC to shame.

    What the hell, did all the fighters in UFC just start doing drugs. Looks to me like this shit has been going on for awhile, why are we just starting to hear about it? Have drug test always been required before fights?

    As for the pay these poor bastards get in UFC, it's pathetic! They bust their asses for the love of the sport & Dana White pads his pockets with their blood. I have zero respect for that SOB because of the way he treats the fighters that aren't on his "A" list. I hope these guys wise up & leave his ass & get the money they deserve.
