how is it that ridiculous?

Its ridiculous if it took that much more for Kimbo to fight Seth. I believe he made $250k for the fight CBS show and I read that they had to pay him more to take the 2nd fight on short notice.

So an additional $200k-$250k to take a fight on short notice with a guy you outweigh by 30lbs when you will fight "anyone, anywhere, anyhow" is ridiculous.

I did not know that was his slogan. IF, and thats a huge IF since we dont know if he made more on day of negotiations, i still dont see a huge deal, he had exc by their short curlies and he got paid.

I agree. I don't care how much they paid him. Good for him for have marginal skills and getting the same payday as Arlovski.

You can only blame elite for staking 1/3 of their eggs in the Kimbo basket. It's just going to be awesome to see the other 2 cash cows lose in their next fights.

LOL Thank god the feminists aren't into MMA they'd be screaming of the inequality of pay.... but seriously, why so little for her? I'd expect more, then again it is the EliteXC.

theres not really a huge demand for female fighters mebbie? :dunno:

sure she has tits, but that can only take you so far. its probobly worth it to her to keep her name out there so she gets more shit like american gladiators and that vidio game.

That's true. I would have thought since they keep telling her in interviews she's the face of Women s MMA, she'd get a bit more of a nod. I wasn't that impressed with her fight to be honest, she seemed bored out there or something. I expect more out of her and I guess that's my problem and not hers.

Where else is she going to fight on national TV? UFC doesn't want anything to do with Female MMA and neither do most other orgs.
