iirc AA got 1.5 million for fighting fedor, when randy was beefing with UFC how much was the check dana showed at the press conference?
With all the ppv cuts and backroom bonuses, no one really has any idea what these guys are making.

i know, but i was trying to find the randy check specifically.
The problem is, the fighters pay, especially for big time fighters, are not disclosed to the public.
StillNoTop10wins - i'd assume Chuck vs Tito.
i dunno brock v mir might be close. all depends on what % of ppv each gets/got.
I'd say Arlo had the highest "show" purse that I've ever heard of. Obviously other fighters may make more after ppv cuts and locker room bonuses.
I would imagine that it was either Yoshida, Akebono, Sapp or Ogawa for one of their headlining events in Japan--maybe Ogawa vs. Yoshida or Akebono vs. Sapp
In the UFC's counter presser I think they showed that Randy made over $1.5 million for his fight with Big Tim and over $1.2 million for the Gonzaga fight or something like that.
Chuck has supposedly gotten the bigges total paydays though.
