The men who fought three times in one night didn't make 10 million, what GSP makes in endorsements alone. GSP has a lot to lose as does Anderson, much more than they did back in the old days when the money wasn't what it is today.

This article though has to be garbage, that or someone is talking out of their ass, really? 50 Million and you don't think Anderson Silva the biggest politician in MMA isn't gonna ask for as much if not more?

That's 100 million dollars at least for one fight and as big as it may be I doubt it eclipses the mark of Mayweather/De La Hoya, you're high if you think the UFC will pay 50 million to one fighter. If the fight happens they may get 15 million and even that may be pushing it.
