I bet that was the hardest $23,000 that Hamill will ever make.

Can you believe 7K for Howard, and $15K for Hallman? (salary)

And what's with the no win bonus for Kimbo?

Good management got him $25G bout agreement (all others got about $8G...$16G to win) lots of fighters who get big money dont get win bonuses in Japan, UFC usually doesn't do things that way....but whatever.

I think Kimbo said it best himself...."That's how a ****** eat!"

All of a sudden Kimbo looks VERY smart for passing on that fight on TUF. He got paid more than both finalists combined!!

Who knew Kimbo had the most business savvy in the group? Or maybe youtube made Kimbo an offer that Dana had to top...
