    Joe Rogan: Ex-UFC champ Georges St. Pierre was making $5 million per fight

    That's according to UFC color commentator Joe Rogan, who talked about the kind of bread "Rush" was baking as the promotion's reigning welterweight champion and uncrowned "king" of pay-per-view (PPV) buys before hanging up his gloves late last year.

    "When you look at pay, there's a pay that's listed as far as the purse you get after the fight. That doesn't take into account a lot of factors. There's a lot of things they want to remain private. You're not just getting paid that amount. Some people are. But when a guy is selling tickets, a big name fighter, there's a lot of factors in there. Incentives, pieces of pay per view. Georges St. Pierre was making $5 million a fight. He's making a lot of fucking money. He's got sponsors, Gatorade, all this other stuff. Other revenue coming in. Georges St. Pierre made a fuck load of money fighting."

    I wonder how much the UFC made from GSP. The UFC isn't being nice or charitable because they paid him a lot. He proved his value to the company as a top star. He made them money, and they made him money. It's a business relationship, not a hand out. Sometimes I defend the UFC when people treat fighters like a victim, even though they agreed to the pay, but not this time. I hate when Dana and the boys act like they are a dad giving an allowance, or as Dana puts it "I've been good to him".
    USA! USA! USA!

    Stealing is wrong!
