I cant believe Bas got that much. Thats almost as bad as what Royce got paid for being smashed by Matt Hughes

His coming out of retirement was kind of hyped as the main event...











until Kimo got caught with the winny...for his joints ::) >:( :-X
ANYBODY who knows ANYTHING about gear recognized that as the biggest bunch of BS in MMA history!!!

I'm sorry, what were we talking about?  Oh yeah, Bas and his $.  Honestly, he was the main reason I paid for it vs waiting to see Rampage and Lindland Sun morning on Youtube

That's not even counting the win bonuses, I don't think Bas should get a win bonus, his opponent was his win bonus.

wfa looks interesting though, they have a lot to work on when it comes to overal production etc but if they can put the money on the table they can get some interesting fighters over from japan. opportunity right now has never been better with the japanase being in financial trouble

That might actually be happening if Cro-Cop doesn't win the OWGP.

Me too, UFC 62 is the shittiest card I have ever seen.  I am actually considering breaking my seven year streak I have going. (ordering every UFC and Pride PPV event for the last seven years)  Log of shit > Dana White.

Agreed.  I don't plan on buying 62; it'll be the first one in a couple of years that I haven't gotten...
