    "That 1.3 mil was for K1 and Gracie, so Gracie didnt get all that money."

    Well the 1.3 million was Gracie's purse, K-1 just gets a percentage of it. Wasn't like they had to pay K-1 this much and Gracie this much. They do the pay out, K-1 since they represent Gracie handles what money goes where.

    I'll have the official numbers by the end of next week most likely. The rumored number for Royce was 1.3-1.5 million dollars. That figure has been floating around since the fight was first signed. We've actually already talked about that on here a good bit I think.

    I may have to say that one pro wrestler would have a chance... Kurt Angle... the only reason being is he is an Olympic Gold Medalist... but other than that, never, and i doubt even Kurt... in Pride perhaps it would, but not UFC

    Gracie 1.3 Mil for fight??

    If its true Dana spent 1.3 mill for Gracie I think he would have been better served getting a Brock Lesnar to fight for a fraction that cost. If the thought was PPV buys Brock is much more marketable to the WWF crowd and he probably could have got a big crossover WWF fan base.

    If not Brock, maybe someone along those lines, I think you know where I am going with this, any opinions???
