    According to Dave Meltzer
    • Thales Leitas - $18,000 for fight.... $35,000 for best sub.... $53,000 total
    • Patrick Cote - $24,000 for fight.... $35,000 for best KO..... $59,000 total
    • Randy Couture - $250,000 for fight.... $35,000 for best fight.... $285,000 total.... Plus % of PPV total, likely making him over a million.
    • Gabriel Gonzaga - $45,000 for fight..... $35,000 for best fight.... $80,000 total
    I didn't know that they gave both fighters the bonus for best fight :coold:

    I know that, but I figured that for if both were being paid the winner would get a little more than the loser for winning the fight, but I guess that is why they pay win bonuses.

    yeah because if its really one sided its not a good fight. a good fight the pace is always changing and both sides are putting up a fight. I think that huerta fight awhile back that was a blood bath that was a good fight

    yeah, but that was extremely one sided, that Garcia dude has some serious heart.

    I dont know how anyone could say, Sorry Clay, you dont get the bonus cause you lost.

    :ugh:

    20% of his fights have gone to decision...... that's plenty respectable.



    I bet someone on Sherdog is really missing you right now. you should probably head back there.

    Most of Huerta's wins have come by submission/KO/TKO. Yawn.
