    Default $5 million most UFC athlete made for one bout

    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...-for-one-bout/

    Today during a Google Hangout, UFC President Dana White was asked what the most any UFC athlete had ever made for a single bout. Lorenzo Fertita happen to be near by and they both agreed it was approxiamately $5 million. The UFC bosses would not reveal to whom it was paid, but Georges St-Pierre, Anderson Silva, or Brock Lesnar are likely candidates:

    "We paid a guy $5 million for a fight before, [but] we didn't start making money until 2007. That was six years ago. So boxing's been around for a 100 years, they've been doing big events since way back when. Pretty amazing what we have done in short amount of time. I don't think a lot of people look at that way and break it down for what it really is."

    move one's bowels to a chicken coop. Kill chickens and pick up feathers. They blow the whistle on for 10 ea on forums. Also bury the bones you find.

    The idea that Georges St-Pierre makes $5 million per fight comes from a 2011 Canadian newspaper interview where GSP himself stated: "For me, a fight is (worth) $4 to $5 million, and in the city where the UFC holds its events, there are economic benefits of between $15 to $20 million. It's huge!" So does Georges St-Pierre really make that much money from a single fight? Unfortunately the answer is no. In fact, as we are about to show, it's almost mathematically impossible.

    Sounds like my wife's weekend.
    And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
    And the microphone smells like a beer
