    wow cung and shamrock got paid well. shamrock, i'm sure, got paid more after he cashed in on betting on himself to lose and then taking the dive. i feel bad for everybody else on the card that only make a couple Gs… especially jesse gillespie since $1200 (before tax) would pretty much cover hospital costs, plane tickets, gym fees, and paying his trainer.

    It's interesting that there were no win bonuses for Shamrock or Le. I think that and "fight of the night" bonuses are good. More motivation to go at it, rather than dance out a victory.

    well if i were fighting $300K for 10 minutes of fight, i wouldn't complain. that's already more than what anderson silva is making per fight.
