    Kos got screwed bigtime if that was all he made for the fight. A second main event fighter walking with just ten grand.

    I really wish we could get the whole picture here. I just don't see how he only makes 10K on that fight when Grove pulls in 12K. How does that make sense. Kos has been at it longer and winning longer. how does he get less than half these guys?

    Its not right 10K is nothing. For all the training and all the media and hype, Kos got punked in this UFC.
