Before I get a mountain of abuse im not saying he should have won the fight or any crap like that.
I've just seen the Salary pay outs for the event and to say I was shocked is an understatement.
DC was making $80,000 for that fight no matter what top that off with another $80,000 for a finishing bonus and he took away a cool $160,000
Now I know this was cummins first fight in the UFC, he wasn't really a big name and he works part time in a coffee shop yada yada.
But they only paid him $8000. Now there's probably a lot of guys who would willingly take a beating for that kind of money. I'm from the UK so the change is currency can change things a bit but when I converted how much he got in to pounds I couldn't believe it, it was less than what I paid for my first car.
Somebody help me out if I'm wrong but $8000 doesn't seem like a lot to me when you factor in possible costs he has or could have after the fight?
