Just give him a cut of the PPV with only a small guarantee. If Royce is so confident he's still a star, he should have no problem with that deal as big PPV #'s would end up lining his pockets with more than a million.

blueheron20816 - So let me get this straight; he petitions to get on the card, then demands a higher purse than any other fighter, and this is after getting destroyed in his last UFC showing....hmmmm, think hes just making noise at this point, theres no chance lol


agreed 100%. He got dominated against hughes so besides the fact that he was in the UFC since the beginning, he does not bring anything to the table worth 1 million dollars...and as far as generating PPV's...I'm not sure how marketable he is since most people outside of hardcore fans don't really know who he is all that well.

It's not the the fact that it's a million dollars, it's the fact that 95% of the other fighters who actually compete regularly don't make anywhere near that money.

thats g - i dont think he really wants to fight, so he makes a ludacris demand to make it seem like he does, but he knows dana wont give him that kind of dough.
the ufc doesnt need royce to fill the seats for the first brazil show in forever.

tdotguy - Brock Lesnar's purse is 500k, thats all you need to know. 

 Not only is that hilariously wrong, but Royce made more than a million to fight Matt Hughes over five years ago
Brock is the highest paid mma fighter ever Phone Post

Haywood Jablowme -  Pat Miletich said Royce made around 1.5 for the Hughes fight and Hughes checked in a bit over a million.
Those numbers are correct.... although Royce's was a little higher.

i saw this on another interview a year or so back, he has a contract for life, and the contract must always put him a certain % higher than the next highest paid fighter... so even if he never fights, as soon as someone earns big, Royce's fight purse automatically goes up.... a legal contract is a legal contract... no matter how silly it looks now, someone must have thought it was a good deal at some point? maybe they regret that now?? but then again, they dont have to let him fight if they dont want to honour it do they lol

if he would of beaten hughes, he would of deserved million dollar pay day. but, he was practically begging to be in ufc 134 in brazil, why is he asking for so much now. ego, i guess.

Royce didn't invent anything. Rorion started the UFC. Rickson was supposed to fight in it. Royce replaced him after some background drama. MMA/Vale Tudo existed in Brazil for years. Royce is a stud for fighting in the first few UFCs and reaping his brand but he didn't invent anything. Phone Post

Not interested! I think it would actually make the card boring to see Gracie fight! I'd rather them give Tony the million so I can see him get worked again lol Phone Post

Probably trying to save face

He went on public saying he wanted to fight and after being aware he wont be asked he comes up with stuff like this.

He is not a draw in the modern day. Most casual fans will not care about Royce Gracie fighting on a card. Phone Post

 The more I thought about it, 1.8 and 1.2 are sticking out.

The guy deserves all the respect in the world but 7 figures? That seems a bit excessive. Phone Post
