When the UFC was broke

Fun fact from UFC 22:

With the exception of the main eventers, almost every fighter on the show fought for a flat $1,000 purse because money was so tight.

That list of non-main eventers on the card included Jens Pulver, Matt Hughes, Chuck Liddell, and Jeremy Horn. What a difference 10 years makes, eh?
