Most elite guys have an attorney and manager who know what they are doing
and are not going to back down. I saw an article once where Lidell was getting 200,000 and if he won he would have gotten 500,000. Meanwhile the UFC pocketed around 3-4 million. That just isn't fair Lidell bet the house, and came out on the short end of the stick, not only losing but really just about finished him, that my friend isnt right.
