A lot of the financial deals, I talk about, as there are a lot of methods for cheating fighters in MMA.
You sold one to me, let me ask you do MMA guys have somebody that oversees the biz side of things? This local promoter I know here told me he was writing checks for $100, $200 I couldn't believe it. If anybody wants to know what boxing was like in the good old bad days. The trick here is to have amateur MMA matches on where the promoter keeps it all. Chuck Lidell was going to make $500,000 if he won a match which he lost his purse I believe was 200,000. It was a PPV, in a major venue. The promoter made about 5 million.
