Paul Daley gets bonus but A. Johnson does not

Do Paul Daley, who has missed weight at least 3 times in his mma career, who has had 2 fights in UFC after UFC108, he misses weight, but Dana White gives him 50 THOUSAND dollars for knockout of the night bonus.

Anthony Johnson who has never missed weight, fought for UFC more than Paul Daley, he missed weight and Dana says if he would've made weight he'd've got the bonus.

So why does one fighter, who has experience missing weight, not as seasoned as another, non-American, get a fight bonus but Anthony Rumble doesn't?

What-The Fuck.

Don't feed the troll.

Because Johnson is a darker skinned black man.

Didnt he miss weight vs Clementi?

I think he did.

Haha, maybe more fighters will now try to act dizzy and weak when they miss weight so that doctors will forbid them to cut anymore but they'll still be eligible for fight bonuses.

7 pounds or 2 pounds, overweight is overweight. If it was for a title do you think UFC would make it a title match anyways?

I would just like to see fairness across the board. Give Rumble his bonus or don't give Daley one. Double standards.

I still can't believe that Mclovin stood right in front of him for 2 minutes....

Well there's tons of things contributing to it. Daley has only missed weight once in the UFC whereas A.Johnson has missed weight three times. When Johnson misses weight, he misses it by A LOT. Also, I've heard that Dana White hates Ken Pavia, who represents A.Johnson.

Excuse the shit outta me.

Point being, one fighter misses weight, Dana White publicly states had he made weight he would've got the bonus. Paul Daley missed weight, he got a bonus.

Discuss and add some insight instead of talking about trolling-TROLL

There are quite a few threads about this already and all the points are in there.

I couldnt disagree with you more. AJ misses weight again and KO's an overmatched Yoshida. He didnt deserve it anyway.

Hazelett> Yoshida by a decent margin

After knocking out Dustin Hazelett on Saturday, Paul Daley explained away his failure to make weight on Friday by saying he missed a day and a half of his weight cut because of a travel snafu.

That excuse doesn't cut it. If Daley had no history of missing weight, I could maybe -- maybe -- see using a travel problem as a reason for coming in over. But Daley does have a history of missing weight. After stepping on the scale at 172 for Friday's weigh-in, Daley has now missed weight in three of his last six fights: He came in at 171.5 for MFC 20 in February of 2009 and at 174 for MFC 19 in December of 2008.

Daley is starting to get some buzz as a future welterweight title contender, but I can't see that happening until Daley can show that he can weigh in at 170 pounds consistently. So far he hasn't done that.

And while Daley was docked 10 percent of his purse, he more than made up for that by winning the Knockout of the Night bonus. The UFC should stop giving bonuses to fighters who miss weight, and at UFC 108 Junior dos Santos, who knocked out Gilbert Yvel, would have been a more deserving choice for Knockout of the Night.

Daley has had a couple of exciting victories in his first two UFC fights, and he's a likable fighter the UFC loves showing off on Saturday nights. But on Fridays, it's time for him to start making weight and stop making excuses.
