    Earning less on the books. More in cash. Dana is a friend of the working man.

    wow that's a lot of name recognition on one card, so much different with the weekly PPV, Fight Nights, Fight Pass, FSN1, etc.
    3 hall of famers and 4 guys most remember even 150 events later

    The fighters weren't in it so much for the money back then, I think they were just honored to fight in the UFC. It wasn't a career, they had other ways of making money or were just content being broke. Fighter pay has come a long way, but there is certainly room for improvement.

    I cant believe no fighter ever took Dana to the woodshed. Consequences be damned.

    What was PPV? 30 mil?

    Back when fighters actually fought and competed. Now, it's about money, money, money.

    Well just your numbers are very far off, even though pay the pay is shit.

    You are adding a extra 9 million to the card when it's not there.
