You think Strikeforce can afford a million plus a fight.
Strikeforce or Elite can't afford Tito.
His only option is M-1.
Without the type of ppvs UFC bring in, Strikeforce an Elite is pretty much out. Because Tito gets 220-240 per fight, thats not winning thats just to fight. Now add in his PPV cut thats damn close to a million if not more.
Lets say Tito fights 3 times a year for this other promotion. At over a million plus a fight, you actually think these companies can shell out 3 plus million to make Tito happy.
Not to mention after seeing how much Kimbo and Tank got, Tito has to have seen that an will be wanting so much more.
Dana said Chuck an Tito each walked away with a few million in their rematch.
if anyone actually thinks Tito is going to go to a lesser promotion an fight for less money, then they are smoking that good crack.
If Tito beats Machida he stays with the UFC. He can run his mouth all he wants but he stays, specially if he finishes Machida.
You don't think Dana or Zuffa would resign Tito to what he wants if he beats an or finishes a top 10 fighter, not to mention with a finish it would get Titos draw way back up their.
People seem to forget Tito is very smart an this is marketing for him.
