    Nick Diaz complains about everything, including money, yet all he did was take a beating for 25 minutes and got paid 1/5 of a Mil?

    Well these aren't the obvious salaries for these guys. GSP got at least 5 million for that fight, and if Codemaster is right on Dana's projections it should have been around 10. Hopefully nick got at least 3 or 4.

    With the ticket sales announced, and the buyrates trending high, the total for the fighters should have been around 15+ million. That's about 50 million from PPV, 5+ million from tickets. Mulitple big pay sponsorship deals, plus distribution money from Europe, Australia, Brazil, and other countries over seas. Take away 25 for cable companies, and half for the arena (although that is being generous) then your left with roughly 30 million for Zuffa. In theory the fighters should be getting at least 20 of that, but 15 should be ideal with them getting 50% of the profits.
