    I think there is alot of behind the scenes money that takes place in Pride. Wasnt their released salary for Fedor like 100k or something small like that?

    I believe they do too, I don't think people give the UFC enough credit for paying their fighters.

    I remember an article about when Babalu lost to Chuck Liddell the 2nd time and the Fertitta brothers came up to him after the event and handed him and undisclosed envelope which brought Babalu to tears.

    They really do care for their fighters, people just don't give them enough credit.
