Yes, Jardine beat Liddell, but do you think for a second that The Dean of Mean will now sell PPV's on the same level as the Iceman?
My whole post was trying to answer your question on what someone might base a reasonable fighter pay on. So I tried to grab some POV's of someone who might think the fight pay isn't good (the side I think you were referring to, and I also chose it because it's funny). I'm re-reading my previous post now and can see how you missed the sarcasm.
I don't see anything wrong with the fighter pay, especially the Jardine deal. As of right now, for Mr. Dean to sell ppv's and make money the way Liddel is, he'd have to earn
someone like Liddel or Couture's credentials and popularity. Not have it magically inherited (what I was trying to poke at in my previous post) without earning his stripes first.
Jardine has one stripe now, but didn't before the Liddel fight so I feel the $14,000 is called for if he had no stripes going in. So what I don't understand right now is - Why are people complaining? I thought fighter pay was determined before the fight? Jardine understood, why wouldn't someone else understand?
