 I doubt he left with 5k honestly. Melvin Manhoef "reportedly" made 5k in his fight with Robbie Lawler, while Lawler made 100K. Unless I hear other from Vinny I doubt this is the whole truth.

Well it is sad. Years off your life for $5000. Unless love of the sport is an acceptable payment method...

 Like I said..."attempting." The current economic climate definitely isn't helping their efforts, but as long as those three continue to win(and if Frankie can continue to finish), I can see there being an upwards trend in the amount of buys they get. And Anderson is assuredly a star in South America, and I think can be considered one in NA as well. The Rio show buys were definitely affected by a huge portion of the East Coast losing power that weekend, along with many bars not ordering it due to the weather conditions.

It's ok, Jason is a close personal friend and I took no offense to it.  We like to argue all the time.  I  made my post to stir him up some.  He just forgot that some people might not know that we are friends and will look at it as bashing me.  It's ok, next time I'm at his house, I will leave him an upper decker.

 Frankie just headlined and sold 175k PPVs.  They've got a long way to go on him.  Cain has a long way to go also.  Jones is the closest thing they've got and he moved what 400k against Page?  Anderson is probably a star at this point, but the Rio show didn't move a ton of PPV's either.  2011 has been a terrible PPV year for the UFC.  I believe they've cracked 500k buys TWICE - Silva/Belfort and Shields/GSP..  That's way off of 2010.

Anderson. And they're attempting it with Frankie and JBJ and Cain.
