Yeah, the man is doing wonders with this promotion. He there is a reason Bellator has been rising in popularity overtime. Though I think his loyalty to MTV2 until the end of the contract is going to stint Bellator's growth for the time being.

The props he gave Curran tonight was really nice to watch. I'd be curious to take a look at the payouts for Bellator events.

I think the winners of tournaments get six digits. The amounts are usually pretty good overtime. But you have to remember that their tickets is one source of revenue they get.

I think the rest of the guys get like $30,000 and $25,000 for their participation. These guys are in for it because of the money. They get a reasonable amount of money for their fights.

Fighters can earn $10,000 to show and an additional $10,000 as a win bonus in the opening quarterfinal round, and the payouts increase to $15K/$15K in the semifinals and $20K/$30K for the tournament finale.

Then they fight the champ I think for 25/25 and the champ gets 50/nil
