    Well then, the deal is much worse than I originally thought.

    So if we ever see a "legends" fight between Hughes & KOS, or if one of them fights Tibau. Or Tito comes back and fights Frank Mir. Other than that, not many guys getting 20k Those are all the guys with 25+ fights. Unless it counts DURING your 25th fight, in which case Bisping and Couture are in there too.

    I believe Thomson said he would lose over 50,000 per fight because of the Reebok deal......that's not chump change.

    That's a huge chunk of change especially for guys who are in the down stages of there careers and may only have a couple Fights left, i wouldn't be shocked to see all the Fighters over 30 looking at Bellator if they aren't in the top 15 and aren't looking and being there any time soon

    For sure , that's retirement money for a lot of these guys, not just being able to get any sponsor you want but no sponsor tax either.

    If Josh Thomson gets 50,000 or so what does someone like Tito Ortiz or Josh Koscheck get?
