First off I gotta apologize: I’m way behind on news so you’re gonna be seeing some ‘last week’ stuff here. But it’s not like I’m the one cranking out exclusives or anything. You shouldn’t be coming here for cutting edge news, because we’re more like blunt trauma news. Anyways, the Ultimate Fight Night 11 pay figures have been released
, and here’s my pithy observations:
- Luke Cummo drinks his own urine, fights in the dark matches, and *still* makes 10 thousand dollars more than Kenny Florian, who headlined the show.
- Din Thomas was the highest paid loser on the show, making 16 grand. No word yet on how much it’ll cost to put his knee back together.
- Nate Diaz made 30k in his win over Junior Assuncao, proving yet again that TUF’s ‘six figure contract’ sounds better than it really is.
- Kuniyoshi Hironaka has a 10k to fight / 10k to win contract, proving that while no one cares about these random japanese fighters, they’re still getting paid more than random noth american fighters like Leonard Garcia and Jonathan Goulet who only make 6k / 6k.
