So one time, the stadium not selling is not a huge deal like you try to make it seem.
It is widely known that headlining fighters get a cut of the revenue from an event. Like many have said before GSP has been paid between 4-5 million a fight by the UFC for some time. Anderson similar money as well as lesnar. Nick Diaz, Ronda Rousey, Chris Weidman, Jon Jones, Lyoto Machida, Shogun Rua, Rampage Jackson, Tito Ortiz, Chuck Liddell, Randy Couture, Cain Velasquez, JDS just to name a few have all seen 7 figure paychecks for a single fight.
