not with the UFC 60 one.

Royce Gracie: $400,000
Matt Hughes: $55,000

wtf is up with that. No wonder royce came back to UFC, he got thrown a shit ton of money. I've never been a huge royce gracie fan, he thinks he's the hottest shit on street and really i don't think he could beat guys like GSP as well as Hughes, they're to well rounded and strong for him.

What is it that is going to be on your mind when you're on your death bed? Will it be the tedious years of 9 to 5, or the memory of some great acheivement. Maybe a moment you stood in glory to the applause of millions.

I say take these payout stats with a grain of salt. These fighters get much more, at least the top tier fighters negotiatie a percentage of the PPV earnings, gate sales, plus they all get bonuses for victory and KOs. I read that Gracie actualy got more than 1 million bones for his quick fight!
