OK so I was reading the UFC payscale and got to thinking... pay bonuses are DUMB!
We all know most fighters don't get paid enough and it's hard to be financially stable to train full time and just fight. That being said... say a guy is getting 10 / 10 in the UFC... doubling your purse is HUGE! So of course guys will do what ever it takes to win... Even if it's a lil boring... they give up WAY too much if they lose!
Why not set something up where you get a partial bonus for winning but the full double for FINISHING!
Especially the way we're getting big 3 round fights these days that when they are done it almost feels like nothing was accomplished and there is no clear winner. More minutes / rounds would also be good of course, but I think this would help too. Seems to inspire TUF guys...
