Now this seems like a rediculous statement. However after stumbling across the fighter payments issued for UFC 84, i have come to the conclusion that King is a generous and honest individual that puts the welfare of his fighters above all else. UFC 84 generated close to 4 million at the gate and is expected to reach PPV buys of around 500,000. This should translate to revenue of around 30 million for the UFC. Sean Sherk was in the main event. Much of the interest in this event was generated from the excellent promotion from the two main event fighters. Its safe to assume that their use of the media to promote their supposed hatred for each other contributed to far greater PPV numbers than they could have otherwise expected. Sean Sherk got paid $35,000. Boxing has long been known for crooked promoters not least of all Don King. However even King has never managed to get away with paying one of his fighters 35 gs in a title fight that generated 30 million dollars to the best of my knowledge. The UFC has pulled off a masive feat to make this scumbag look good in comparison.
