    These contracts generally have a finite amount set.
    Im willing to bet he will be locked in for a number of years/ufc fights/dollars.

    Hence my one worded first post on this thread.... FOREVER.

    As long as the 50% doesn't get into sponsership money it's really not that bad of a deal Johnny had a life getting here much better than most I would assume.
    I agree with that.

    If Johny tries to renegotiate simply because he's champion, he's a punkass. Assuming his goal was always to be champion, this is a huge part of what got him there. Minimally, I'd expect him to honor the contract as champion for as long as they supported him when he was still working to achieve that goal--not that I anticipate Hendricks being champion for anything close to seven years.

    If he's champ next year, they should definitely revisit that contract. Big If, but then again he may have other things going for him outside of fighting. Who knows? Or maybe he's content with what he makes? It's hard for fighters to get to his position on their own. for an up in coming fighter it's a good deal. But now it may be time to "pay the piper".

    sure it does, now hes making championship money. Everything changes when someone is taking 50% of championship money. Like riv said - by this time next year if hes still champion id bet hes under new management

    When they showed Johnny leaving his house in the promotional video it looked like a nice home in a good neighborhood.

    This is pretty interesting. I think it is great that they offer fighters financial security. It's a big risk for both parties to sign off on this type of deal, I'd love to hear what other fighters think of it.

    If he's still champion by this time next year [and my over/under on that is way under] I bet he wants to be done with them.

    Probably gonna get some down low money from Dana, much like the down low man love Dana gives while swinging from his sack.

    I think he was in talks with them when transitioning from wrestling to MMA but I don't think he was brought into MMA by Team Takedown. I could be wrong though.
