Re: Mayweather KO of Ortiz
Also forgot to mention, the UFC has bonuses (win bonus, fight of the night, knock out/submission of the night) that help. The very top guys also get a % of PPV buys. I know Lesnar, Silver, GSP get this, I'm not real sure of any others. Pretty much if the PPV buys are greater than X amount, then each buy after that, the fighter gets x% of that buy.
It's difficult to get a certain number amount as alot of it is unknown (sponsors, etc.). I read an article that said Lesnar made $3 million for his fight @ UFC 100.
