Show me da money!!!

Some of you are probably wondering how much the fighters made in UFC 71. Here is the complete breakdown provided by mmaweekly.com :

Title Match & Main Event Fighters:

-Chuck Liddell: $500,000 (18th fight in UFC; lost to Rampage)
-Rampage: $225,000 (2nd fight in UFC; defeated Chuck Liddell)

***Chuck could have won an extra 500K, totalling 1Million dollars if he would have won.  Rampage still didn’t even get half of what Chuck made for losing.  Rampage has been wanting that chedda for a while now, so he’s getting a big paycheck IF he beats his next opponent.  But he’s fighting Dan Henderson, so ummmm ::eyes are rolling::   Let’s continue with the next few payouts…
