Her pay days were 20,000 a fight. 20,000 May be a lot for some fighters, but not a lot for a household name recognized fighter like Gina.
You are just repeating what I said, why she held out is obvious like I already stated in the post u quoted..But its the other bit of politics that I am talking about.I dont think she had a choice per se, sure its her free will to sign or not to sign the doted line..But if she had the option to fight cyborg or some 6-3 broad do you really think she would not choose the 6-3 broad..But the option was not given to her because like I said coker wants to make money matches as soon as they're available...We also dont know how many years/fights she has left on her elie xc contract so maybe she has to fulfil that if she wants her raise and if she wants her raise she needs (well needed) to meet cyborg, get the picture..

To Live is 2 suffer, 2 survive? well that is 2 find meaning in the suffering
