    Paying one fighter $30k and one $500 is ridiculous. If everyone was getting paid under $1000 on a small local show I could understand, but If you can shell out $30k to have someone fight, no way should a fighter on the card be getting $500.

    And considering where and how it was put on, production costs were probably pretty low

    And wasnt that Gilberts last fight on his contract? Dana said he was interested in him after his contract was up, and I am sure he will offer him more than 30k total

    If the fighters don't like the pay they don't have to sign the contract.

    Plus free grotto sex, can't get that in the UFC.

    Sucks for the $500 fighters. That's not even enough to buy a ticket to his own fight.

    Nice payday for Eugene Jackson, didn't think he could garner that kind of pay.

    And I didn't get paid to fight, I'm sure Optimix didn't either. It probably came down to be compensated for time, travel etc etc.

    I had an exhibition fight and got $700. Granted that was in tickets I sold.

    My first pro fight I got $500 & $500 + % of ticket sales (that i sold personally)

  19. what does this mean?
     
  20. so you're saying they were paid significantly 'under the table'?


    or does the 'etc' mean the bunnies all blew them?

    No, I've been paid a lot of times like that but in AL there is no athletic commission so they pay Am fighters.

    any idea what the medical testing and commission
    fees are?
    doesnt some of that come out of their 500? or do the sponsers usually pick those up?
