Hold That said:
Pretty much ended this thread with this post..
Like I said in my previous post, Dana White is raping the sh*t out of his f!ghters, and nobody says nothing and nobody cares.. nobody gives a fu*k about Dana White nor do the fans pay to see him f!ght, some how his f!ghters don't even sniff 50% of the PPV buys..
And Oscar De La Hoya made 1mil for his first f!ght directly out of the Olympics.. Floyd Made 50k for his first f!ght.. With any boxer the more you win, your pay scale increases with each match.. There's people in the UFC who are 15-20 f!ghts in and not even sniffing 150k per f!ght which is insane considering how much revenue the sport brings in..
Like I said, majority of these UFC f!ghters will have nothing to show for their life long dedication.. Being paid only 150k maximum and most only f!ght twice a year???? Thats not enough to set you up for the rest of your life, especially in a sport that has a short shelf life.
The problem is the promoters agreed to give out too much money in the first place. That's why I am saying that Dana is doing the right thing by not letting these f!ghters demand so much money. It's the promoters fault that they gave Mayweather that much money to f!ght. He got 50k coming out of the Olympics. If you bump him up (at the end of his career) to 1 million per f!ght then who is he to cry about that if there isn't a precedent set before that says Boxers deserve more? You see what I am saying now? Nobody would have given Mayweather 40 million for a f!ght had some promoter done it.
Now, arguing what someone is worth is going to be different for everyone. I just think that Dana is doing the right thing by not allowing the f!ghters in his organization to ask for so much money. They know he'll say no, and anyone is replaceable. Mayweather is a HUGE draw, but after he's gone, there will be another f!ghter that will draw PPVs for boxing. It's similar to Chuck Liddell being a huge draw for the UFC, then Anderson Silva came out of nowhere.
Again, we'll argue this forever, but you seem think that Mayweather is worth 40 million for one night. I completely disagree. If whatever promoter who gave Mayweather anything over 5 million for one f!ght hadn't done that, then Mayweather wouldn't have had the balls to ask for 40 million for a f!ght. It's the PROMOTERS fault for giving that much money out when they could have kept it for themselves (as Dana is doing).
