Visibly angry with the decision — Who cares what I think? I'm only the ******' promoter! — White retreats with his entourage to his private dressing room, where he is joined by two financial officers from Zuffa. Along with Lorenzo Fertitta, White decides who should win the bonus money for best submission and the rest. Bonus checks for all the fighters are written out by hand. When they get to Shogun's check, White orders the accountants to "pay the taxes." Meaning, essentially, that he wants Shogun's previously contracted payday to be doubled.

*p.s. that was pretty cool of Dana to do..i know Shogun must of felt like sh*t after gettin robbed..but that still doesn't make up for the belt...

I don't know money in the bank might be higher on my list then a strap.

See, for as much crap as I give Dana I know he does things like this. I really respect things like this but tomorrow he's going to ban chewing bubble gum.

I knock Dana at times for his negative behavior but this is absolutely outstanding. It's a little theatrical but who cares, it is great for the fighter.

yeah i'm like the next guy to me..i hate Dana..yea i know what he did for MMA(UFC)..but man his attitude gotta go..i don't see any other promoter doin the kinda sh*t he does..sometimes i feel like he thinks he's a Gang Leader serious..think he can do whatever he wants..cause he took MMA to where it is right now..but he forgets..Pride also had something to do with it too..since Pride was around the same time UFC was..i think it started a lil after UFC began..but to be honest..i think if i had the chance..i would knock Dana out..i think he needs a reality check..cause as of lately..he's been doin things for money wise..and not givin a sh*t bout fans..but he always talks bout puttin on the best fights for the fans..b.s..point in being..Dana seriously needs a reality check..i know it's not cool to fighter bash..but are we allowed to do it to promoters?..lol...

since when are fighters so well paid? I know he make more then most but he isn't going to be doing this for the rest of his life. These guys need to strike it rich while they can cause when the lights are off there won't be anymore pay days.

edit
He only made 155,000 on that fight. If something were to happen is he going to live off that for the rest of his life?

gym memberships can keep him going.the only way a shogun is going to go broke is if he goes blind deaf and dumb all at the same time.if he gets hurt whats to say he cant coach or still be at his gym??
