    I dunno, sounds plausible considering he did nearly a million PPV buys for Silva 2.

    Aldo made 5 million for the Connor fight.

    Alvarez's contact details came out and he would've made a similar amount for fighting Connor.

    In Rampage's court documents he made $15million during his run with UFC.

    If you sell a lot of PPV's you can get paid well if you have a good agent/know how to negotiate.

    Maybe he didn't get 8million for Anderson 2 but I could definitely believe 5 million.

    If Silva/Sonnen 2 did 925k, and let's say he got $8 off the PPV

    He'd make $7,400,000 off PPV alone, plus his guaranteed money.

    But is the UFC really giving off $8 of PPV?

    Oh yeah, forgot sponsors too. So maybe like $7

    Something like frauding numbers is something he would never do, he is a stand up real estate agent.

    Lol at people doubting him.

    There is a simple rule in the UFC. If you pull your weight and promote yourself and the sport and bring in the numbers, you will be compensated

    I always believe convicted money launderers, ESPECIALLY when they discuss money. Doesn’t everyone?

    Lol point deduction for what he still got finished in both of the Silva fights. Also no he wouldn’t get a shot with 1 win. He won’t even beat the top 5 in the MW division anyway.

    I’ve heard him say before that Jones made $2 million for their fight. I doubt he made more than Jones.

    It's not unheard of. You gotta factor in this is BEFORE taxes.. after taxes he would be lucky to walk away with 5 million from an 8 million pay day and 4 million on a 6 million dollar pay day. So if he's factoring in totals, sponsorship, camps, etc. It's not unheard of before expenses and taxation he made that much for those fights. They did do decent ppv numbers.
