Machida getting some lov€, me like.


As for the bottom feeders, damn, are they under paid or what,
i know they are in the bottom, but if you announce your promotion as the "super bowl of mma" don´t pay the like they´re amateurs.

P.S. - Aldo is the champ, UFC. Pay him a champs wager...

Interesting,for $20K I'm thinking they need to throw in a couple hours with Brittany,Arielle and Leilani in a jacuzzi suite for that kind of money,screw the fake belt.

$20k is nothing for a sideline seat at a big event. It's chump change.

Although to be fair it's debatable how many people actually cough it up out of their pockets. Firms will often buy up those seats to put up someone they sponsor in an attempt at free marketing.

The thing about Garza was that he was a replacement fighter only meant to be a sacrificial lamb to Zhang Tie Quan he was then given a second chance and he knocked the ever loving crap out of Fredson Paixão with a flying knee. So while he's only made 20,000 for three fights he's made $179,000 with bonuses.

Without some in depth journalism getting agents or UFC officials to talk, we don't really know who makes what, because the UFC has no reason to release it.
Dana white once said between bonuses and sponsorship that Chuck Liddell was making like 5 million a fight back when Chuck was the man (his numbers only showed 500,000). I find in unlikely that GSP is not making that kind of cash and find it just as unlikely that a guy like Aldo is not breaking a million by the time its over.

LOL Dana is a ultra tightass, $6,000 payout for championship fight/co-main event on largest UFC event in history. no wonder Fedor never fought in UFC.
Dana: Fedor, i'll offer you $300,000 for 3 match contract.
Fedor: LOL
Dana: Ok, ok, $330,000!

I bet that is the last time Hominick makes that kind of money in the UFC, he'll be on bigger paychecks after that fight for sure.

LOL you might want to at least know a little about the subject you are talking about,

Dana offered Fedor so much money that no ufc fighter has even come close to the amount before or since, the money had no reason whatsoever on fedor's decision to not come to the ufc

If $$$ wasnt the reason then what was it? and what was the offer?
I don't think Dana would have offered enough since $1.84mil was the total fighter salaries for UFC 129, which was the largest UFC event and its 2011 now.
