The UFC 177 Salaries Prove How Wrong We All Were About UFC 177′s Stacked Lineup

(Unfortunately, the catcalls directed towards Ms. Baker could not be heard that night, as they were drowned out by the deafening chirps of a thousand crickets. Photo via Getty.) By Jared Jones (channeling Dana White's inner rage)  'Sup, fuckers. D-White here. You know, there was a lot of disgusting, f*cking despicable things being said about the quality of UFC 177 and its lineup by you f*cking asshole media members in the weeks leading up to it. Jonathan Snowdick said he wasn't buying it, and that everyone should send a message to me about the continually dwindling quality of our product by doing the same. Those CagePotato bastards couldn't even be bothered to liveblog it, and Dave Meltzer said some nasty things too, because Dave Meltzer is a f*cking scumbag asshole. Sure, maybe the card lost an Olympianit's original co-main event, and it's main event at the last minute. And yeah, UFC 177 as a whole only contained two fighters ranked in the top 15 in their division, and only two of the 144 ranked fighters in all 9 divisions, but this card was worth every penny of the $54.99 it cost, you unappreciative fucks! CRITICIZING SOMETHING MEANS YOU HATE IT. Let me ask you this, you insatiable, armchair expert, dickhead media members: If UFC 177 was so shitty, then surely the fighters salaries would reflect it, right? Well, read 'em and weep!
T.J. Dillashaw: $100,000 (includes $50,000 win bonus) def. Joe Soto: $20,000 Tony Ferguson: $40,000 (includes $20,000 win bonus) def. Danny Castillo: $36,000 Bethe Correia: $24,000 (includes $12,000 win bonus) def. Shayna Baszler: $8,000

VIDEO: Hermes Franca Is Quickly KTFO’d in First MMA Fight Following Prison and Deportation

(Props: MEIAGUARDA Fortaleza) Hermes Franca returned to MMA competition last Thursday at Extreme Fighter: Nordeste in Fortaleza, Brazil, and was smashed in 34 seconds by Marcio Breno. Franca looked rusty for a reason; the former WEC lightweight champion and UFC title contender hadn't competed in over three years, due to his prison stint for sexually abusing an underage jiu-jitsu student, and his subsequent deportation back to Brazil. If you're into karmic justice, watch the video above. Franca swings some decent leg kicks early, but Breno drops him with a right cross at the video's 1:47 mark and bounces his head off the canvas a few times with shots from above, causing the ref to jump in. Eventually, Franca makes it back to his feet and the crowd chants something at the 2:20-2:32 mark. (Are they saying "Hermes"? And if so, are they doing it sarcastically? I can't tell.) Releated thought: This list from 2008 has become woefully outdated in the year 2014. Most of those guys would be off the list due to inactivity. New version to come soon...

“Good Old J.R.” Has Idea Of Biggest UFC Superstar

Jim Ross has helped push some of the biggest talent in pro wrestling history, including former UFC heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar, Steve Austin and The Rock. While he no longer frequents the broadcast booth for WWE events, Ross remains active in all things sports – including MMA. As a follower of the sport, Ross has […]

Renaming ‘The Four Horsewomen’: Six Pro-Wrestling Stables That Better Describe the Group

(The Iconic Four Horsewomen: Ronda Rousey [not pictured], Three Other Chicks, and King Kong Bundy in a dress. Photo courtesy of TitoCouture.com) By Seth Falvo

"If you're gonna take a baseball bat to a Horseman, finish the job! Because there's one rule of gang fighting. See, we are the original gang and we're the most vicious in all of professional wrestling history. They send one of yours to the hospital, you send two of theirs to the morgue."

- Arn Anderson, Horseman. August 5, 1996.

Those four sentences do more than anyone else could possibly hope to do in order to establish why "The Four Horsewomen" are anything but. On Saturday night, Horsewoman Shayna Baszler had the opportunity to get revenge on Bethe Correia, the fighter who outpointed Horsewoman Jessamyn Duke at UFC 172 and proceeded to downright ether the stable during her victory celebration. Not to ruin the outcome, but let's just say that The Four Horsewomen now have to send four of Bethe's friends to the morgue if they're still trying to push that angle.

That the legendary Four Horsemen never feuded with nobodies like Hardbody Harrison — and sure as hell never jobbed to sub-.500 fighters — is completely besides the point. "The Four Horsewomen" have become such a tired joke that even mocking people who criticize how loosely they resemble The Four Horsemen on your social media accounts is completely worn out. Since we're all in agreement that they need a new name, let's look to some professional wrestling stables who The Four Horsewomen have resembled far more closely. Here are six that fit the description...

The Wyatt Family

A backwoods cult that's gotten tremendously over with professional wrestling fans, despite accomplishing very little of note. Why it works: Both factions are led by a compelling, charismatic eccentric. Why it doesn't: No offense to Bray Wyatt, but Ronda Rousey has accomplished far, far too much for this comparison to work.

T.J. Dillashaw Finishes Second Straight Fighter In Fifth Round

UFC bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw mimicked his fight from earlier this year Saturday night, landing a fifth-round head-kick that finished Joe Soto in the main event of UFC 177. Dillashaw did the same to then-champion Renan Barao, a fight he was well ahead on in earning the title. In front of his hometown fans in […]

Will the UFC Be Signing Ben Askren Soon?

(Photo via Getty) The same chorus emerges every time the UFC makes a questionable signing. "You sign this guy but not Ben Askren?" The MMA world might not have to type this sentiment out on Twitter and r/MMA much longer. "I think if he keeps winning, he could get a shot over here," Dana White said at the UFC 177 post-fight media scrum. His words on Askren took a bizarrely conciliatory tone. Check them out after the jump...

Renan Barao Puts Life at Risk, Makes $0.00

(Photo via Getty.) Dana White lobbed a financial insult at Renan Barao in the wake of UFC 177. In case you've been away from the Internet for the last few days: The main event of UFC 177 was supposed to be bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw vs. Renan Barao--an unnecessary rematch of their bout from May. Barao botched his weight cut, which caused him to fall and hit his head in the shower. He was rushed to the hospital and couldn't fight. Weight cutting is a serious health issue, but Dana White and the UFC apparently don't care. Insults to the ego are one thing, insults to the wallet are another. The former is naught but the buzzing of flies, but the latter stings like Head and Shoulders in the eye. Renan Barao will probably get over Joe Rogan essentially calling him an embarrassment to himself and the UFC. But will Barao get over Dana White refusing to pay him his show money? Because that's what Dana White is doing. He's not paying Barao.

25 Things You Can Do Between Fights During a UFC on FOX Sports 1 Broadcast

(26. Stare at this picture of Dana White for 45 minutes. / Photo via Getty) The gap between fights on FS1 broadcasts is massive. We realized it was senseless to just watch all the commercials. Instead, let's all be productive with our time. Here's a list of several (but not all) things you can do during the huge amount of time in between fights. 1. Watch several fights from a previous UFC PPV on Fight Pass. 2. Go get ice cream or pizza. 3. Perform the recommended amount of daily exercise. 4. Read a chapter from the latest trendy YA novel. 5. Try to educate the heathens next to you at Buffalo Wild Wings about the finer points of MMA. 6. Do DDP Yoga. 7. Read a chapter from Matt Hughes' autobiography (don't worry, it's not exactly War and Peace).

OMFG: Renan Barao Withdraws From UFC 177 After Botched Weight Cut, Joe Soto Replaces Him Against TJ Dillashaw

(Please, Renan, you're scaring the children. / Photo via MMAWeekly) As karmic retribution for the UFC trying to sell us a garbage-ass pay-per-view, Renan Barao withdrew from his UFC 177 headlining fight against TJ Dillashaw earlier today, following complications during his weight cut. According to a statement provided to MMAFighting.com by Nova Uniao, "Barao felt dizzy when leaving the tub in his hotel room and hit his head against the wall. The bantamweight passed out and was rushed to the hospital." A catchweight bout between Barao and Dillashaw was not considered due to safety concerns. Barao is currently recovering in a Sacramento hospital. As a result of the withdrawal, the UFC has drafted — get this — former Bellator featherweight champion Joe Soto to step in on a day's notice against Dillashaw. Soto is riding a six-fight win streak, and was set to make his UFC debut tomorrow night against Anthony Birchak (never heard of him) on the prelims. So now, tomorrow's pay-per-view event is UFC 177: Dillashaw vs. Soto. Card subject to change. Refunds now available. UFC 177 was so star-deprived that Renan Barao himself was the biggest name on the card. And now he's gone. God help us all. UFC 177 will proceed with just eight fights on the card. When we woke up this morning, there were ten, but then Henry Cejudo did his thing, and now this. Unreal. "(Barao) is scared," Dillashaw said after the bad news broke. "He doesn’t want it. His coaches wanted the rematch more than he did. He's never missed weight before. It's kinda funny he does it now." Also:

Check Out A Simulation Of Saturday’s UFC 177 Main Event

EA Sports has put together a simulation to predict this Saturday night’s main event fight at UFC 177 between bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw and Renan Barao. Earlier this year, Dillashaw stunned Barao with a fifth round TKO victory, dominating the former champion for the better part of 20-plus minutes. According to the simulators, the outcome […]

Obviously, Henry Cejudo Has Pulled Out of UFC 177 Due to ‘Medical Reasons’ [UPDATED]

(Photo via Getty) The most unreliable fighter in mixed martial arts has done it again, folks. UFC.com confirms that former Olympic gold medalist Henry Cejudo has withdrawn from his scheduled UFC 177 match against Scott Jorgensen "due to medical reasons." This is the same guy who no-showed the weigh-ins for Legacy FC 25 last November due to a reported stomach flu, blew weight by 3.5 pounds before his win over Elias Garcia in January, pulled out of a Legacy FC title fight against Damacio Page this past May due to "personal reasons," then withdrew from the main event of Legacy FC 34 last month for undisclosed reasons, just before signing with the UFC. In retrospect, it's kind of baffling that the UFC signed this flake in the first place — although the promotion hedged its bets by burying Cejudo vs. Jorgensen on the UFC 177 prelims.
