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



May be money in the bank wud be better for me and for you mate but am sure shogun has all ready got plenty of cash so he probs wud of give it all back for the belt.



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?



I thought he made $250k as the taxes were paid ?

He may have as for the gym thing did you read the atricle on Rich Franklins post fighting days Gyms don't make all that much money. Their not Freddi Roach training the Pac man for 50 million dollar fights.

true.

but all that means is that he has to tone down his lifestyle to fit how much money he makes

I like Dana, always have and always will. Everyones always chirpin him but this is a classy move. Sure he can come off as a prick sometime but he's the ****** man IMO. I'd say he's a really good representative for the UFC, he gets you fools talking doesn't he haha
