If Till misses weight, should Wonderboy negotiate for seven figures?

Discussion in 'UFC Discussion' started by Deleted member 196663, May 26, 2018.

  1. From a negotiating standpoint, I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone with more leverage against the UFC than right now.

    -He has the moral high ground.
    -He bent over as the number one contender to make this flight happen.
    -The public sentiment is clearly with him.
    -He’s already the nicest dude ever.
    -His contract is already way below market value.
    - No one could blame him if he pulls out, EVEN Dana! And...

    -The success of an entire event would be riding on his decision, on the DAY of the FIGHT!

    Is his manager salivating somewhere? This is like a dream come true for some negotiators.

    He should negotiate for all of till’s purse and 50% of his next one.

    Wonderboy is not the WonderMan. He can ask and negotiate for more, doubt he gets 7 figures for this fight. Maybe over a number of fights yes..

    If he pushes the issue too far, he will get the Yair Rodriguez treatment

    Exactly. The UFC doesn't like to negotiate under pressure.

    Things are going to get very interesting if Till misses that 188 mark.

    So this is different from Luke Rockhold at 221 how?

    He should demand that it be for the interim MW belt and some Reebok gear

    Rockhold UFC 222.

    That was a PPV show. Rockhold has the UFC by the balls
