How much do fighters in PRIDE and K-1 get paid?
I read a few months back that Antonio Rodrigo Nogueria was making between $300,000-$400,000 per fight in PRIDE. But then I read that his contract expired and that K-1 offered him $750,000 to fight on their New Years Eve show, but then Nogueria obviously ended up resigning with PRIDE. So does anyone know what he's making now?
I've read that Royce Gracie is getting paid $1 million (or maybe a little more) to fight Akebono at the K-1 New Years Eve show. I assume that Akebono is getting about the same, correct?
I read that Rulon Gardner signed a 3 fight contract with PRIDE for $600,000, so that comes out to $200,000 per fight. Does anyone know if that is all that he'll be making win, lose, or draw, or is that just his appearance fee and does he get a bonus if he wins, and if so, how much?
I read that that Egyptian Olympic wrestler, Karim Gaber Ibriham (or whatever his name is) signed a $1.2 million deal with K-1. Is this just for one fight or is this for multiple fights? Also, does he get win bonuses?
How much do the following figheters make?
Mirko "CroCop" Filipovic
How much do the top K-1 guys make these days (Bojasky, Hoost, LeBanner, etc..)? What's the grand prize for winning the K-1 World Grand Prix up to now? I read a few years ago that the K-1 World Grand Prix Finals grand prize purse was $500,000.
How much does Kazuyuki Fujita make per fight? How about Bob Sapp?
