Ouch.

Yeah, Riddle has always been a bit of a dummy, but I had no idea that he was making that much money. Holy shit.

There are some crazy contracts out there. The fact that he was making that much and some others were making 6 and 6 is insane.

Can somebody explain that? Is it sponsor money? There's bigger names who fight on main cards who don't make that.

I'm guessing it includes the money they gave him in private.

Reports from his previous wins have shown 15:15k. When will these fighters learn that going against the UFC/Dana will always end up bad for them. He is the king at these quarrels and knows how to truly destroy someone verbally. On a side note my god Chael is a kiss ass. 

 

That weed and beating his kids quote is taken compeltely out of context. It was tongue in cheek what he said. To suggest the guy is potentially violet to his family is low. But there you have it, dont get into these quarrels because you will lose and retarded shit you said will come back and bite you in the ass.

Theres no way he makes 162k a year dana bsing

and lol @ works 3 times a year. Shows what disregard dana holds to fighters. Training for a fight is really taxing on the body and you have to train at least 2 months prior to the fight.

It was a little weird how they were bad mouthing him for failing a drug test when chael did the exact same thing...but for performance enhancers

"Guess what dummy, they drugtest in the real world too". It's funny cause it's true. As long as it keeps him from beating his children, keep smoking pothead.

I don't think Dana is saying fighters don't work hard. His point here is that Riddle only had to worry about drug testing a handful of times a year, and still managed to fail them.

Didn't he win some "of the night" bonuses? That could be it. Phone Post 3.0

Yes, see my post above yours.

He made year 160k in 2012 with the 3 wins and 1 win bonus.

But had he lost, he could have made 45k in 2012.
