-- Former heavyweight champion, Tim Sylvia, checks in on his forum after the submission loss to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira at UFC 81: "Breaking Point" on February 2. "The Maine-iac" -- who has been with the organization since 2002 -- earned $100,000 for the spirited effort, as well as pocketed an extra $60,000 for the "Fight of the Night." Lesnar earned $250,000 for his loss to Frank Mir and would have netted significantly more with a win.
