    per The MMA Hour.

    So UFC gets to use a fighter’s image in the video game and that nets you $300.

    Hey that’s good enough to cover a nice buffet in Las Vegas for Big Country.

    for a long time, NCAA football players received nothing. then they filed a lawsuit.

    interesting reads for those who are into this kind of thing

    "Leonard Aragon, the attorney for Hagens Berman Sobol Shaprio who is handling the settlement, said 24,932 checks are being issued. The average recovery for a player is $1,237, the median is $1,071, the maximum is $7,622 and the lowest is $58. The lowest payment is an outlier because that player opted out of the EA settlement and only got paid from the NCAA settlement, Aragon said. Otherwise, the lowest payment is $100."
