I was going to post exactly what Mauro just confirmed before but the thread was full of:
"Well at least he was offered and didn't accept it. There's a difference."
"Now that Rampage is the champ I know he wouldn't do that."
posts. So I just didn't even bother. More money for losers that get knocked out is actually a pretty cool concept. First, a loss doesn't necessarily have a positive impact on your carreer, and you'd make more money in the long run by winning.
But if you lose by KO, especially a PRIDE KO, you'd maybe need more money for hospital bills, and other costs. Plus, I doubt a lot of fighters would lose for an extra 2,000, especially by an embarassing KO.
