    Damn, so according to this Daniel Cormier would have only made 50k had he lost while BigFoot would have got 150k, and he was the replacement.

  2. Joegun says:

    They’re all waaayyy underpaid.Pacquaio just got $23 million fighting vs. Mosley even the top fighters wont see 15% of that in their entire career.
