  1. frank made a killing and nick got butned, i can see frank making more than him but how did gilbert and scott make more than him when he is headlining?

  2. *got burned

  3. Franks the Chuck Liddell of Strikeforce. Win or lose he brings in the crowed (San Jose).

    Strikeforce has a sweet deal in San Jose, Put Shamrock or Cung Le on the card and its an instant sellout

    Diaz proved at the EliteXC in Stockton, he just can't draw in the locals (Probably flipped off half of them).

  4. yeah, i have no problem with what frank made he deserves it but nick should have gotten more than that.

  5. wow nick got cheated out of money. frank deserves to make that much. so does cung le.

  6. Hitomi Akano got robbed! No wonder she didn't want to fight at first when cyborg didn't make weight.

  7. I think Cyborg draws in a good amount of fans. I'm surprised they only pay her so much. If thats the way it's going to be, I could see women not wanting to even fight.

Speak Your Mind


+ 7 = sixteen
