 Sure, if  by "went out of business" you mean that the owner sold it for millions of dollars AND continues to run the promotion and put on fights.

Probably true haha. I was wondering how they could pay so much when they don't bring in that much money, guess that explains it haha

Zwicker got 3K for his "FeatheredZombie" routine Tax free though Hopefully after that performance, he puts a few wins together and starts cashing in...

Good for Cormier. Only 10 fights into his MMA career and he's already making $50K + $50K, and that's only going to go up.

in my opinion those numbers are shit. Strikefore or not i'm thinking the 2 guys in the main event, the final of the heavyweight grand prix make a little bit more while the lower card fighters get a decent raise. I fimly believe some of the lower ranked fighters could actually be much better given a little more $$$ to work with. Would be able to breathe easier knowing if you did have an injury you wouldn't have to worry about your rent/mortgage as well. Just my thoughts.
