Thread: UFC 76: Knockout

    Overall, one of the best cards in awhile (or at least best set of fights). Taveras/Griffin was supposed to be wild and it was, Machida looked alot more aggresive than in past performances, Fitch was solid, and then the two big upsets.

    UFC 77 will have tough act to follow...

    Shogun was effin gassed. Griffin's submission, was self admittedly, a poor attempt. But to quote Forrest Griffin, "Fatigue is a real b*tch".
    I wish I could kick Matt Dragon in the balls. In his Dragonballz.

    That Was Funny That Forrest Won. I Was Kinda Pissed Cause I Lost Money,but It Was Bittersweet Cause I Love An Upset. Forrest Really Looked Good In His Stand Up

    Fighter Payouts from UFC 76----always interesting seeing these. Taveres/Griffin both got an extra 40,000 for Fight of the Night, and F. Griffin got 40,000 for submission of the night.

    Keith Jardine ($14,000) def. Chuck Liddell ($500,000)
    Forrest Griffin ($44,000) def. Mauricio “Shogun” Rua ($150,000)
    Jon Fitch ($44,000) def. Diego Sanchez ($22,000)
    Lyoto Machida ($50,000) def. Kazuhiro Nakamura ($20,000)
    Tyson Griffin ($24,000) def. Thiago Tavares ($9,000)
    Rich Clementi ($24,000) def. Anthony Johnson ($5,000)
    Jeremy Stephens ($6,000) def. Diego Saraiva ($3,000)
    Christian Wellisch ($14,000) def. Scott Junk ($4,000)
    Matt Wiman ($16,000) def. Michihiro Omigawa ($5,000)

    Nice to see Tavares pick up a little extra coin for what was a great fight. Whats that, three fights this year for Tyson Griffin, three fights of the night?

    The payouts always make me feel a little ill. Seeing that some guys have trained for months and months for $3,000, or that Jardine made that much less than Liddell, who he beat, just doesn't feel right.

    Yah how does Matt Wiman make more than Jardine. I think they should pay based on where you fall on the fight card with a 150,000 minimum for a main event fight and a no more that a 150,000 dollar difference than your opponent and then down from there with a minimum of 10,000 per fighter no matter where you are on the card for PPV. On spike I couldnt tell you.

    I'm sure Jardine has an old contract. They try to sign the fighters to long-term contracts, so I'm sure when he was signed Jardine wasn't thought to be close to a contender. He is in for a huge raise whenever it runs out. Not that I think about it, he probably has a few more fights left on his contract. Dana will not put a fighter into a fight in which it could make him a top contender, if he's in the last fight of his contract. This is why Arlovski has gone for so long w/o fighting, he has 1 fight left and they haven't been able to renegotiate.
    Stiil it's ridiculous that he is the main event of a PPV, wins and gets paid 14k. I know he gets more for sponsors and stuff but still......

    But as crazy as it is for Jardine, think about Diego Saraiva. He trained for months for $3K, and he likely doesn't have the sponsors that Jardine has. After taxes, that's maybe 2K for a few months work? If he's working out 30 hours a week, for three months, that's around $8.33 an hour, before taxes. He'd make much more working for UPS, plus he'd have health care!
