Does anyone here know how much Rickson Gracie got paid for winning the Shooto Vale Tudo Japan '94 & '95 tournaments? Did Rickson recieve appearance fees in addition to his winner's purse and if so does anybody know how much he got? Did he get paid for advancing in each round and does anybody know how much that was?
Rickson has fought that much and one of the primary reasons is that he asks for too much money, so I'm just wondering how much it took to get him to fight in those events. I'm thinking that his winner's purse for those two events was only like $50,000 but that seems to cheap for Rickson.
Didn't Rickson get like $1 million for each of his fights against Takada in PRIDE? I seem to recall hearing that figure for those fights.
