  3. You can't make a direct comparison to team/league sports. I'll do a bigger response when I'm at home and can go over my economics of sports textbook. :o

    It's because of the verb, noun difference. It sounds like yoda, because yoda does the same thing. Yoda is a dirty foreigner. .

    Just as well as the UFC, apparently.

    Except for the IFL.

    6 sided ring? Fuck, even when I'm high it seems like a bad idea.

    i don't see why an undercard fighter in the ufc should be payed more than 5k. He's not selling tickets and their skill level most of the time is average and doesn't deserve more than what hes getting paid for.

    to generate $5,000 in revenue they would need to sell around 200 PPVs. Jorge Gurgel does not have that large of a family.
     
  25. conversely, how many people would buy Chuck vs. Tito if that was the only fight on the card?

    You have to have somebody fight, and I 'd wager anyone on the card is worth $5,000 just for filling a slot (provided they don't pull a Kalib Starnes).

    Of course, Jorge Gurgel doesn't sell any more pay-per-views than some randtard from KOTC, so they all have to compete for the slot, driving the price down.
