huh? they pay CC like 300,000 some dollars for one fight and they pay other people(given they are not as good as CC) 3,000 dollars to fight. That being said tho nobody knows how much is actually given to the fighters, since their sponsers pitch in.

wow i didnt know Jason Macdonald was geting so much. 14k to show is quite the bit for a third fight.
And i see Hughes still has his awesome contract even without the belt.
Gotta love how Randy made more money that Tim even if he had lost though.
Randy gets 250k to show. I love it.

Yeah Pride is ****** because they pay their fighters fairly, and not because of organized crime or any of the other uncontrollable factors currently raping them

I don't know if your right. I think Randy get's a guarentted show fee + PPV revenue. At least that was his deal against Chuck for their 3rd fight . I guess it could be different this time, but I don't see why he would do them a favor and come back for less money.
