Makes sense.
Fight pass. Non tv. Gotta be losing sponsorship money.

Yes CB Runaway will lose money with this fight. He already knows he isn't getting his "WIN" money. Lost before he even steps in the cage.

$30K is more than enough from the UFC, his sponsors throwing another $20K makes $50K...how does this not cover the costs? Luxury hotels and private aircraft could cause that dent but a week at the Holiday Inn and 1st class tickets to Germany during a non high traffic time period having bought the tickets a month or two ago shouldn't have done it.

He said USUALLY he brings in $20,000 but this time it will be a great deal less because sponsors prefer to be on TV/PPV. Not to mention he said it will cost him out of pocket to bring more coaches and sparring partners because the UFC only pays for two extra tickets.

This is horrible. Hope CB smashes Carmont!

Carmont was top 10 and CB just ran right through him with basis ease. I think he gets another big fight next, maybe top 5 guy and a restructure of his contract so that he gets paid. Hey, 4 fight win streak with some impressive names, he deserves it, finally.
