    Ain't nobody paying that boy 2 million dollars to fight. Mighty Mouse vs Dillashaw might do 200k buyrate on a weekend with nothing else going on in sports.

    Yawn... even this guy's interviews put me to sleep lol.

    Good luck chasing the 2mil payday vs anyone, MM... I wouldn't pay PPV money to watch Dillashaw aka Cruz Lite outpoint you the same way.

    You know you're bland when Dave fucking Sholler has to tell you to show some personality.

    2 million

    i lke you MM but dont be straight up delusional

    or is this the new way of ducking fights? or should i say, the old gracie way? ask a price so high that no one can cover it, and then you can say "i never ducked anyone, they just didnt meet my price"

    Lol @ 2 million. All the backroom bonuses in the world won't get MM that much money. And to get points you need to sell some PPVs.

    DJ made $237,000 his last fight without sponsors or backroom bonuses. He makes good money.

    It's a shame he doesn't have more fans and that people still talk shit about the division.

    I think $237,000 per fight is pretty good for DJ. Number is just going to go up if he gets past Dodson.

    I'm guessing he misunderstood, they were saying that the total ppv revenue from one of his fights could maybe generate $2 million!
