Steroids in MMA
Which MMA Fighter Will Test Positive For Steroids Next?

Snappin’ Necks, Collectin’ Small Checks

Official salaries from the TUF 6 finale were released yesterday. Check ‘em out below, and keep in mind that all TUF contestants were paid $8,000 to show, and the salary figures of all winning fighters represent a doubling of their base salary:

Roger Huerta ($38,000) def. Clay Guida ($11,000)
Mac Danzig ($16,000) def. Tommy Speer ($8,000)
Jon Koppenhaver ($16,000) def. Jared Rollins ($8,000)
George Sotiropoulos ($16,000) def. Billy Miles ($8,000)
Ben Saunders ($16,000) def. Dan Barrera ($8,000)
Troy Mandaloniz ($16,000) def. Richie Hightower ($8,000)
Matt Arroyo ($16,000) def. John Kolosci ($8,000)
Roman Mitichyan ($16,000) def. Dorian Price ($8,000)
Jonathan Goulet ($14,000) def. Paul Georgieff ($8,000)
Total fighter payout: $239,000

Man, our hearts go out to Jonathan Goulet — as if being forced to take on part-time fighter/first-round loser Paul Georgieff wasn’t insulting enough, the Canadian journeyman (who had a 20-9, 2-3 UFC record coming into the fight) was given a base salary that was a thousand bucks less than his opponent. And we don’t know how much longer Clay Guida is locked into his current contract, but someone as popular and accomplished as he is should be taking home a lot more cash. Is Brandon Vera really nine times more valuable than Guida is?

Well, at least the coaches aren’t going hungry. According to MMA Fightline, Matt Serra got a “brand new pimped out SUV” for his participation on The Ultimate Fighter 6, while Matt Hughes was given this tractor. Listen for Matt saying “Where’s my wife at?” during the clip. I think he wants to tell her that she won’t have to pull the plow any more…
