Alvarez is also guaranteed a $250,000 signing bonus, payable in two installments of $85,000 and one of $80,000
Apparently the UFC is not very good at math.

OK never mind now I see what they are saying. That was worded a little funny.

Doesn't deserve a title shot but oh well. Great fighter but he has no chin.

I read that statement like 3 or 4 times and I kept seeing two installments 85000 and 80000, as soon as I hit enter on my post I realized what it was saying.

The wording caught me too, I had to look at it a few times just to be sure.

I think the UFC is doing a good thing here. The man is a beast, and he isn't happy with Bellator so I'm glad to see them trying so hard to get him. Even though they probably don't care how he feels, just that there's a lot of money to be had in Alvarez fights.

How do you figure that? Yes he lost to Shinya Aoki, but he avenged that loss. Michael Chandler did get the better of him. His only other professional loss is to a natural 170'er. The hype come from his destructive ways in the octagon. Anytime a fighter can boast a 10 fight win streak, they're doing something right. Even when Nick Thompson snapped that streak, he came right back. The man is an unstoppable force, one to be reckoned with, and certainly one that will stay in the UFC lightweight top ten for a respectable time once he finally gets there.

If it wasn't for the recent Chandler loss I'd agree with this. But now ? Don't get ot at all. I could see an argument for a fight for the number 1 contender spot but a straight title shot? Hmm.

Henderson is going to busy for a while at least!

Well according to GSP he makes about 5mil per fight.

And i imagine his contract now is similar or more. Im not certain but iv not read anything about him signing any new contract in recent memory.


But i have read similar statements to what you just mentioned. Even using google right now i see some articles stating GSP makes 15 million a year.

So im not saying you are wrong just that its a possibility.

------------------------------------

Yeah i think this is overkill for Alvarez BUT tbh this is great. maybe this is a indication of the UFC upping the amount they pay. I have seen a steady increase in pay days since i started watching MMA. Im sure alot of the people on good winning streaks are aching to resign a new contract.
