Right, :thumbsup: this guy doesn't stick to :nono: choreographed fights like Macho Man & those guys do. He goes off on you:madman: "free style".:smilewinkgrin:

:confused: Don't know if he can ride a bike, but he can "gap yer head open" :eekster: w/his elbow.

I know it.

I have a young PanAm and Olimpics caliber martial artist working with me at a Bike Shop in Alaska.

They have to live somewhere.

BTW, your buddy is a monster. Tell him I would NOT want to meet him in a dark alley, and I am 6'4, 235lb.

The contract awarded to the winners of each show, is $120,000 over 3 years. If they happen to win every fight over that 3 year period, they can receive a maximum of $250,000 total.
It is a little deceiving when Dana says you win the "six figure contract".
Hardly a million dollars. The UFC pays their fighters chump change.

As a fighter you know what your gettin' into up front. :) 6 figger's or not, at least you get paid when you perform. You can't :nono: just show up & collect th' geetus. I fought for 10 yrs in martial arts for trophys & 0, nada, zilch in money. I did have a blast :thumbsup: & learned a lot & taught a lot. Personally, I could live on 120K over 3 yrs. but thats just me. 120 K would buy a :ciappa: killer dbl wide trailer.:cool: NOMSANE !
