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.
