Hello All on the Forum:
All I can say is "Don't believe everything you read, especially at CelebrityNetWorth.com"
As Michael's manager I will tell you I make sure he is handsomely paid for all he does but if he made $5 Million for every night he stepped into the ring, then he should be listed on the Forbes Billionaire list by now... As far as me, I am taken of very well by my beloved UFC but only my accountant and them know for sure.
See you from the Octagon on May 27th!
