Here’s a lawsuit that could get ugly. One mixed martial arts fighter (whose litigiousness earned him his nickname) is dragging another into court.

Matt “The Law” Lindland, an MMA fighter who made an unsuccessful run for the Oregon Legislature, is suing Gerald “Hurricane” Harris for alleged unpaid management fees.

I cant believe harris was getting 13k a fight?? What org was paying that? And 20 percent seems like a big portion of his purse. Is that a standard amount?

If you can't click the link, you can either temporarily change the font size, usually by holding ctrl and scrolling your mouse wheel or you can refresh the page to make a different advertisement appear in the post, changing the placement of the link.

Even if the poster changes it, the add changing can put it right back under his badges.

20% does seem like a lot, I wonder if it is so high because he was training at Team Quest for free the whole time. Crazy to see though. He hasnt fought for a while, might be strapped for cash.

Most likely the case.
