[from www.mmamania.com] It seems to me that if you pay a fighter a knockout bonus before the fight happens, that you are quite clearly paying or bribing the fighter to stand. What was supposed to happen if Seth took the fight to the ground, and the fight ended there? Would he have to refund Elite XC the knockout bonus? Awarding the bonus before the fight happens makes no sense whatsoever. The fight could have ended many other ways. But the disturbing point remains: Seth was given money before the fight to end the fight standing.
