"There are all sorts of holes and misleading statements in his argument, but it is worth hearing. The most laughable points are where he lies about paying 50% in taxes, as if he doesn't have typical high end deductions, and when he claims Dana White made 20+ million last year because he's a 10% owner. His breakdown on PPV revenues is also misleading.

I think Tito has a strong point, I don't see the need to lie about numbers like he does. Fighters obviously deserve to get more, the amount that was utterly wasted this year buying Pride and on the failed international expansion could have made many fighters very rich men. "

the above is a quote from Michael Rome at bloodyelbow.com. i have to agree with him on this issue as Tito actually does have a point,, but he dilutes it with unnecessary false facts. i think Tito should at this point shut up and focus on Machida; God knows he has to. i think Tito is just using this fight as more time in the spot light to get his points across, i just hope he comes out in good shape for the fight and proves me wrong. i miss the Tito of old and am getting extremely tired of his antics. my advice to Tito: shut up and fight.

I heard Randy in a radio show talking about how all the PPV payouts combined for 2007 was $17 MIL and a top boxer makes more than that for one fight.

Again, he likely only used the lowest number given to the commission and didn't include bonuses or UFNs, but it's still pretty low when you compare the two.
