BTW: I have a question if you guys are rigging and setting up and one of your staff injures himself. Who's liability is it. The venue, promoter, or your production company.
That all depends on the contract. If my production company was hired by a promoter to set up an event we would negotiate the insurance and liability and build it into the contract, but about 99% of the time it is my production companies insurance that would cover it. It is VERY rare that the venue has any liability unless it is a gross malfunction of the venues equipment (IE a beam rated to hold a certain ton-age fails at far less than it is rated).

Now a company like Zuffa, they are not only the promoter but also the production company, so they are basically a one stop shop for all things MMA, and they are VERY good at the TV end of things.

Intermission. Dont take this personal cause its not.

I still have not to see one person post a link about the sponsor situation. Your a brand owner and im a astronaut. See how that works??? I dont think you are lying btw but im not going to take your word as fact.
Im not saying you are wrong because i very well admitted i am not that educated on the subject and i could very well be wrong. but without there being some type of hard proof for me to read then i cant take your post as anything more then a opinion. Il give you the benifit of the doubt that its a educated opinion but even if thats the case i still doubt you deal with even 20% of the UFC fighters and even then you prolly deal possibly with what percentage of their sponsors??
So i hope you can see why im a bit skeptical.

Dana White says alot of thing. I also know that Keith Jardine when he beat Chuck Liddel he said he spent more money training then he made from the win. And Keith Jardine wasnt exactly a junior either.

Jardine got paid $14,000.00 for that fight in purse alone (who knows if he made anything else from Zuffa) and he had multiple sponsors so he probably made a minimum of $20-$25,000.00 most likley more because the sponsor money when fighting Chuck should have been pretty good.

Now if a guys is spending more than $25,000.00 on a training camp for a fight that he knows how much he is going to make and knows it is less than $25,000.00 he is making some HUGE mistakes somewhere!

I train quite a bit and I dont spend anywhere near $1000.00 in 3 months (a typical camp). I know I am not a greg jackson MMA, but it cant be that expensive for just training!

The most plausible situation is he was unhappy with his contract (that he signed coming out of TUF as a loser) that was not paying him much and was trying to put himself in a better bargaining seat! And in all 4 of his final losses in the UFC before he was cut he made 55k (could have made 110k if he won). So it seems the negotiations worked!
