Yeah paying Royce Gracie $400,000 was one of the best moves the UFC made in a long time. 600,000 buys surpasses even the WWE's Wrestlemania, that is the first time in UFC history. It's simple, in order for the UFC to pay their fighter more or get new fighters is if we, the fans, buy more UFC DVD's, PPV, Shirts, or any other products. :thumbsup:/\/\etallica said:Some guys will only settle for very high amounts. They know they can get big money out of a fight so they take advantage.
Paying Gracie 400,000 for the fight was well worth it. Gracie is the biggest draw ever in UFC and UFC 60 earned UFC over 26 million dollars. 600,000 buys.
I wish UFC would bring in some big draws into the Heavyweight division, but it looks like they cost too much.
