Adolf, he's no longer a fireman and even if he was, that's no reason for the UFC to pay him less. That's like me paying you $0 for German lessons and since you own a successful business already, I can tell people I am taking care of you.
17 fights in the UFC/WEC predating the UFC's ownership and you are happy that he got $14g for taking a beat down?
He fought on the reality show too. He won 2 fights on that show and was not paid for either (didn't stop either guy)
He had gotten fight honors for his previous 4 fights (all 4) and 3 of those were in the UFC, so he's earned more than that imo.
