    But it was priceless for us fight fans that wanted to see Kimbo get owned.

    I hope he enjoyed it while it lasted, I doubt he gets anymore paydays like this again

    Pretty sure he invested a little more than 14 seconds into preparing/promoting that fight. Perhaps I'm wrong. Either way, with the millions upon millions of viewrs that he brought to see him compete, CBS and Elite XC got a bargain. Kudos to the big man from the south east. I would hope that he continues to develop his game and comes back with a vengeance.
    Lets go Brent!

    I am assuming that he got paid to promote the club with the afterparty.

    Well said, Mr. Oliverbush. However, that doesn't say much for the nominal amounts paid by UFC for several of the fighters on their cards does it?

    That being said, here's a quote regarding Petruzelli's $50,000 purse from a sherdog article you might find of interest:
    "Monday, he said he was paid in the “six-figure range,” though it is common for fighters to be paid additional compensation that is not reported through athletic commissions."

    Perhaps, similar to what has been claimed by UFC proponents, a sack of money delivered to his hotel room accounts for the additional amount to reach six figures?
