"You weren't able to work and missed out on potentally hundreds of thousands of dollars, because you were injured through the negligence of somebody else? Well... you went back to work a month later, so you didn't actually lose anything"
There’s no way you’re this dense. I’ll try to break it down for you slower yet I’m sure you’ll still be confused.
No bus incident: Chiesa shows up and gets his ass beat by Pettis. Makes $35k to show
Bus incident: Chiesa still makes his $35k to show. Fights Pettis 4 weeks later and makes another $35k to show while getting his ass beat by Pettis.
No incident: Chiesa makes $35k
Incident: Chiesa makes $70k in 4 weeks.
Quit being retarded
Who are you to say he wouldn't have gotten his show/win money, got two performance bonuses, then fought again a month later? You are not the person to determine that. Not even to mention he likely missed out on a title shot. Why can you not comprehend this? What he did for money a month later, is 100% irrelevant, and has absolutely nothing to do with his loss of potental earning, on that day. Not to mention the emotional toll of going through an entire training camp for the biggest fight of his career, then getting pulled 2 days out, in the middle of a brutal weight cut. I really can't tell if you're trolling or actually being serious.
LOL yes he was better than Pettis that day but way worse than him 4 weeks later.
You guys are fn retarded.
Funny how being pulled 2 days out, and the brutal weight cut, and the emotional toll didn’t completely destroy Pettis’ world like it did for Chiesa.
What the guy above you said is reasonable and a completely sensible conclusion to draw. Your argument is based on these assumptions:
-Chiesa has zero percent chance of winning that night
-Chiesa has no chance of winning a bonus
-Chiesa and Pettis are somehow psychologically the same person and handle distress the same exact way
-Chiesa (had he won) wouldn’t have been higher ranked, in a better spot to challenge the champion, or been in a more advantageous position in terms of negotiations (if his contract was up after that one)
The fact that you make all of these assumptions to make your case means it’s too flawed. It’s the POSSIBILITY of those things that makes his case possible. As likely or unlikely as they are, it doesn’t matter. This is the law we are talking about, and the law couldn’t give a fuck less about what Chiesa’s ranking is, or how he matches up with Pettis.
If I’m a salesman and I get paid by hour plus bonus for each sale, and somebody T Bones me running a red light, im coming after them. Even if my boss was nice enough to pay me for the day, I missed out on potential sales. That could have led to more money, which could have led to more opportunity.
