Why the hell are they paying Rampage $150,000????
Let's get a reality check here. Rampage used to be good & gave exciting fights every now & again, but the fact remains that he beat Arona cos the ref didn't do his job & check if Jackson was out when Arona stopped kicking the back of his head. He recovered & got that great KO slam on one of Prides best fighters. His performances since that has been pretty poor (the Silva 2 fight was only good from a Silva fan point of view).
Other then that he's been riding on the coat-tails of his win over Chuck Liddle.
It's like paying prime streak prices for a hamburger.
As for $200k for Rutten?!?!?.........for an exhibition fight????
(I don't care what anyone says & I'm not taking anything away from Warpath, but come on, who put money on an upset here?)
OK, let's be honest & say without these 2 fighters there would be next to zero interest from a lot of mma fans, but for an organization that is trying to be more fighter friendly paying this amout for run-of-the-mill fights is gonna take you under in less than 6 minths. I can't imagine Bill Goldberg came cheap as an announcer either.
Oh & another thing, if that was all Rampage could do against Lindland, WFA please don't give him more money for a rematch.
