Vera was on Facebook and made more than every other fighter on facebook combined. Not to mention making more than some much better individual talent higher up the card.

I really wanna know how much sponsors and stuff pay because 5k seems very very very very tiny.

I mean I would hope a guy like Danny Downes is doing other stuff for a living. That just seems brutal. I know you have to work your way up but damn

I wonder if he is still finishing up his contract with the WEC. There is no way he is back in the uFC anyway.
