They're in no position to demand a lot of money. Dana could offer them each 100k, take it or leave it, and I think they'd take it. Hurt the brand? Did Kimbo or Toney hurt the brand? I don't think so - people understood and accepted those fights for what they were. And what does "relevance" have to do with PPV numbers? Was Shamrock vs. Tito 1, 2 or 3 relevant? No, not in the least. And yet ALL THREE BROKE PPV OR TV-VIEWER RECORDS!!! Face it, a washed-up Shamrock is still a huge draw, whatever the reason may be.I think you may be very wrong there? do you realise HOW much of a Brand name "Royce Gracie" is?? there was a T.V interview not long ago on brazilian television, and during this Royce expalined that he is STILL a registered fighter and has a contract for LIFE that says he will be the HIGHEST paid fighter in the world... it is guarenteed that he must be paid more than the highest paid fighter at any given time(or words to that effect)i think you can say that ken vs tito 1 was relevant at the time.... he was coming off that fight with frye and that dominating performance over fujita even tho he had heart problems in that fight he looked really good... but def 2 and 3 were not
