the one good thing that will come of Floyd Mayweather Jr, the greatest pound for pound pugilist ever to put on gloves retiring... not hearing his purses cited in debates between retards about mma/ boxing incomes. did these retards ever take a fucking elemtary course in mathematics for christs sake? you cant compare the MAX of one data set, to the MIN or even MEAN of another. Never mind the fact that the aforementioned MAX is an extreme outlier relative to the mean, median, or even the 2nd largest of the set.

CRMartin11 - this is ridiculous. but I'm pretty sure Benson was making or still is making 35/35. A lightweight champ should be making at least 75 k to show!

it said Ben made 200,000.

100 to show, 100 for win.

smoogy - <blockquote>Anderson's BBC in my Goku - Didn't he renegotiate right before the bendo fight? No wonder Nate dumped Cesar. <img src="/images/phone/apple.png" alt="Phone Post 3.0" border="0" style="vertical-align:middle;"/></blockquote><br />

That doesn't make any sense. Cesar was the one who negotiated the contract extension that paid him 3x as much base purse to fight Benson just one fight ago.

Here's a practical theory on what happened. One that doesn't involve typos or UFC paying everyone mystical back room bonuses until they're all satisfied.

-Gracie negotiates new extension for Diaz in Summer 2012 with a $50k base purse in anticipation of Benson title fight
-Diaz loses every round of the title fight
-UFC, as they are wont to do at times, shreds the freshly-signed extension and makes a new "adjusted offer" that puts Nate back down to TUF Winner pay rate.
-Gracie balks at the contract restructuring/massive pay cut and refuses to sign off
-Nate left with 2 options: Sign for less (with a new manager) or go fight somewhere else.

Does any of that sound implausible?

this has to be one of the dumbest ASSUMPTIONs i have ever seen.

Nate Diaz coming off a title fight, (regardless of being dominated or not), With all his of the night bonuses, also probably at least 15 ufc fights (id have to check). Lots of fans, etc. Goes back to his starting salary. Are you retarded?

and to answer your question, YES, it all sounds implausible.

Williambonney - I was shocked by a LOT of the salaries listed there must be some pissed off fighters after seeing this, Melendez making almost twice what the Champ does (and almost 3 times Cormier his Strikeforce HW counter-part coming over who is being hyped big time) seems ridiculous and Mir Making close to 4 times Cormier and twice the LW Champ also seems way too much for someone that is basically a gatekeeper

 

Some of these people you are talking about are still being paid on their Strikeforce contract.

And do you even know the numbers? Mir and Ben made the same amount.
