So the real question is...How much did the DJ get paid? and How much of it does he have to give back for being the biggest shithead I have ever heard?

Ya the Purses are a litte messed up. But its the names like Lesnar and Gracie and pulled in the fans, thats how they marketed the event. If being paid for their fighting skills then yes Sakuraba would've been robbed. Unfortunately as a business, thats not how it would work out. Especially when you have someone like Brock Lesnar who has been making so much in the WWE. Any of the MMA Contenders know he would draw a large amount of fans but in reality if someone is willing to pay that much, why wouldn't he fight there right?
IMO Lesnar made more than he should have, but who knows.. maybe he'll live up to the hype and be worth the money in the long run for K-1

i hate it how just because brock is popular he gets paid that much money to beat a scrub for his first fight...i mean really talented guys make maybe 3000 after a fight if they are lucky....BS that is how i look at how fighters are paid today in MMA

Heard on Tagg radio earlier this week that the salaries that were released were inflated... the tagg hosts were speculating that it would make them look like a better place to fight. Im looking for a link, Ill edit one in when I find it.
