UFC 71 Payouts

Hello there kids... if you want to get paid, quit school and become an MMA fighter.

This is the best advice that I could ever give you. School is overrated anyway and you can't make money there. Instead, learn one disciplie of mixed martial arts... oh.... wrestling for instance, get knocked the fuck out and (hopefully) walk away with some real bank like the three grand Salmon and Stevens got.

Of course, the real cheddar comes in the form of the pay-per-view net percentage that is not ever disclosed and not offered to any undercard fighter much less, the bottom half of the fighters in the televised fights. This winfall belongs to the Main Event fighters who roll in Ferrarri's and Hummer's instead of the poor losers who drive Ford Focus's and Hyundai's.

(If you are a bona fide dumbass and take exception to my message about quitting school then please go back to school and learn something about sarcasm and reverse psychology)
