The payouts are out for Ultimate Fight Night, and normally, I would be breathing fire about how everyone is still getting paid shit. Of course, perhaps I’m still bitter over the fact that I didn’t get laid, but really, is there anyone else who wasn’t a bit disappointed? Maybe I’m fucking spoiled; I don’t know. I can’t remember the last time I dies of boredom watching a Fight Night. Fighters are usually so hungry for a shot at a real card, they normally stop caring about their own well being and fight like wild beasts.
I blame the main event, personally. I’ve never been impressed by Burkman, but Swick has always been a contender. Watching him struggle with a guy that normally gasses in the second round made me quickly lose hope of salvaging my night.
Diaz, Cote, and Pellegrina all came off looking pretty good in terms of salaries, and for what it’s worth, they definitely deserved it. I’m not on the Diaz bandwagon, but I can appreciate a good fucking triangle choke when I see one, and Pellegrino is going to need at least a few grand to stitch up that fucking nasty gash in his face. Still, I find it relatively too bad that McFedries only made out with 10 grand. I don’t even think that covers basic funeral costs. You would think that the UFC could hand that poor bastard a bone, but apparently, that’s not how they roll.
