Pretty cool arrangement. I also wonder what the long term arrangement is. I hate seeing partnerships dissolve because of financial disagreements. Happens all the time.

They got a good thing going though, but it must be extremely challenging because it's almost impossible to replicate it. The time it takes to develop the fighters' into championship material and to maintain that level..

Blackhouse are an anomaly housing four champions at one point.

What happened to Golden Glory and The Reem was unfortunate. It was a matter of the apprentice outgrowing the masters. Had to happen eventually unless the bond is air tight.
Money changes people.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.

Im not real big on fighters paying managers or management teams large percentages (or any percentages for that matter) of their earnings. For the most part, the fighters should be able to handle their own contract negotiations and manage their own money until they reach GSP or Anderson Silva kind of money, at which point handling that kind of stuff can become a bit of a chore. These MMA managers for the most part are not doing jack shit that the fighters couldn't do themselves. It's generally a rip off. They are an unnecessary middle man.

Nobody knows how long this contract ,if any, is so it's dumb to assume he'll be doing this forever. If he remains champ I assuming they're cool enough to realize they don't deserve half of millions of dollars. After all they know Johnny is a super talented guy and could have most likely pulled this off by himself. I mean other guys have reached the top otherwise.

And don't get me wrong. I think that was a super intelligent way to develop a fighter...

People rarely remain "cool" when large amounts of money start to get thrown around. That is usually when you start to find out how "uncool" a person can be.

You're def right about that. By I do stand by my original point. I doubt Johnny signed a "lifetime" contract...And that could still be clearly debatable with the UFC lawyers on your side.

Dumb? His management have been paying his way for 5 years. You think they'll let him go after a few fights at the top? Not a chance. As far as they are concerned, payback has only just started. It'll a good few more fights before they make back what they spent on him, before the real profits begin. Then they'll be looking to double their investment at the least = a *lot* of fights.

Does anybody seriously believe any management team are in it for anything other then making as much money as possible?

This thread is full of off the cuff ramblings and snide remarks that want to be derogatory but are trying to be witty. The guy made a good gesture. Whatever you think of him he made a conscious effort.

I said it was dumb for anyone here to assume the particulars of his contract with them. What they did was smart.

Once again, fighters don't need managers. This is the same kind of shit you see in boxing all the time. It's the Don King thing, some dude seems like he is going to get you the best deal and he only has your interests in mind. In all reality, all they want to do is make money off of you by providing a service that you can easily do yourself, at least in mma still. This is still not a big money sport for most guys and there are not that many giant sponsors, even for dudes in the UFC. You can easily make the calls to sponsors for yourself. Getting yourself looked at by the big leagues no longer requires a manager either. In this age of social media and all the outlets you have for putting your own content on the web and getting it out there, you don't need to douche that has "connections" making calls on your behalf to get you noticed.

Surely they are. And for them it's sort of a gamble. They invest money on several fighters and hope that some of them will be successful, so in the end those will make their profit.

Hendricks doesn't pay only what they spend on him, but also what they spend on other fighters that haven't been as successful yet.
