In a recent comment on the Tim Sylvia forum, former UFC heavyweight champion Tim Sylvia makes a statement about fighter pay for veteran UFC fighters.
“i have one fight left on my contract i want to stay with the ufc but i am going to go were the money is right now Brock is making more m0ney then me that has to change i have a better name then him and i am a better fighter then him, i case u didn’t know my manager runs m1 so i have a pretty good in so we will see what happens in the next few months.

Love him or hate him Tim Sylvia has a point, the UFC is making a big mistake bringing in all these outside fighters and not paying the UFC veterans comparably.
Brock Lesnar basically made as much as the highest paid UFC fighter (Chuck Liddell) on his second ever MMA bout.
