    So Rockhold really did take 100k of Romero's money to take the fight. So I guess he won after all.

    And why the fuck is Ross Pearson getting paid 100k to spar, lol.

    And as usual, Mark Hunt cashes out again.

    I kind of feel like a few of the salaries are off. Like Adesanya. He could make more than 10k fighting in China. But I don't blame SD for that. It's hard to calculate someone new on the roster's show money since they never fought.

    So 23k is the "good contract" Blaydes was talking about? In a most needing talent division?

    [​IMG]

    Ishihara who is mediocre in a stacked division got the same money. Blaydes wake up.

    Also: Nice that Ishihara got win bonus for fight he lost. props to him for that.

    Blaydes only made U$51K, and the guy he rag dolled made U$765K. LOL

    The UFC needs to find a way to make sure that the guy who wins the fight, always ends up with more money than the loser. Or else, all this is, is WWE without the scripted endings (as far as we can tell).

    Speaking as a Luke fan, he would probably happily spend $100k to reverse the long-term damage incurred that night. I'm sure any fighter in his position would.

    Hunt may be old af, but in Austrailia, he is worth that. He increases ticket revenue regardless.

    Jesus.

    Reebok $$$.

    The UFC should be utterly fucking ashamed of itself.

    They shouldn't publicize how much Reebok money each fighter gets.

    It's pathetic.

    Condom Depot and Callahan Brake pads of Sandusky Ohio would pay way more than that.
