I like Tito and i like Dana, so i am in the middle here.
Tito definitely see himself as a god witch is funny because if he is a god what Chuck Liddell is ?? the father of God !! lol
Dana is right about how Tito is, i mean Tito is never happy with anything, no matter how you promote him, how you help him to comeback, he is always complaining.
Funny that Tito forget that he have signed a contract and agreed about a salary when he said that he should be paid like a god !!
If Tito lose against Machida he will go somewhere else when he can beat low level competition but i am sure that he will never get paid as much as he would like and he will complain like always no matter witch president is his boss !!
The reporter is totally wrong about CC, the guy did not leave , it is the UFC who used a clause in his contract to drop his salary, and CC decided to go rebuilt his confidence elsewhere against low level fighters before eventually coming back to redeem himself in the octogon .
I would love to see how much Tito will indeed make in another organization ??
Because last time i checked, no matter how many associate you are to do an event, the revenue are always coming for the PPV ( if they are on PPV ) and the live gate ( Elite/XC was having a huge 6000 peoples live gate to see Kimbo ) !!
Some sponsors can help but only the UFC have big sponsoring ( Harley Davidson )
So, if you agree to pay you fighters more than the UFC ( nothing sure here ) but you have only 1/3 of the gate that the UFC have and let's say 30% of the PPV buy that the UFC have , how can you think that you are able to compete against the UFC without having to burn you own cash to avoid the deficit ?? !!
