I would have to think Hunt is in the 30k - 40k range

No and he has never fought in a place that releases them. Someone from some site posted the $6K thing for his first UFC fight, and now its dragged over every time and its not true.

This is the most irritated I've been with Dana in a long, long time. Jon Fitch being too expensive included.

prozac, you need to read previous posts. Hunt said on Twitter that he doesn't turn fights down.

When asked if Hunt was keen for the fight he said he was 'born down'. Maybe he was talking about down syndrome

I have to think that if Hunt indeed did turn it down that it was about the money being offered. He was pretty damn adamant about wanting the fight yesterday, but I'm sure he feels like he deserves to be paid headliner money if he's going to headline. There's a good chance that this is just Dana BSing though.



is Hunt still getting paid $6k to show, $6k to win. if so, i could see why he would want more money



Nope



My sources say yes.... Do you have a source?

My LINK



Did you actually read your source?



My bad - I read the numbers, not the writing. I apologise however you have ignored my question, you seem 100% confident and have not posted a source
