If this wasn't coming from Rampage I might actually look into it a little more to form my own opinion but he whines so much about everything that this issue goes under the carpet for me.

I didn't read the linked article that was posted, but rather just what was provided in the post.

Based on that there doesn't seem to be a whole lot of substance to his claim other than hearsay. I am sure he could get some disclosure on the numbers if he really wanted to and then he would have some concrete evidence to back his claim up with. Until then, I don't think his claim has much merit.

You can get the numbers, Dave Meltzer gets them all the time and he by no means works for the UFC. A lot of the numbers are estimates based on trending data.

The UFC doesn't release their numbers, Meltzer gets an "estimate".

Doctors ran numerous tests and said that the little hit Rampage caused had nothing to do with the miscarriage, and yet she still tried to milk him for the money. I'm not trying to make light of what Rampage did, but no one was hurt, and thats a good thing. If someone was hurt or killed, I'm sure he would serve jailtime and it would be well deserved.

LOL, Yes you are

A link to twitter on this subject:

Ariel Helwani ‏@arielhelwani

Dana: any fighter who has a PPV deal, like Rampage, has audit rights. He wonders why Rampage isn't doing that. "Everything he says is BS."

Ariel Helwani Ariel Helwani ‏@arielhelwani

After much questioning, it seems like Dana just officially closed the door on Rampage's UFC career.

Agreed. I used to be a Dana Fanboy just 2 years ago, but the last year has shown me that Dana is a lying scumbag that needs to go. And all the bad things that people said about him, most of them were right.
