Plus, you can always get drunk and go to a bar and tell everyone- "I'm a UFC fighter!!!", and terrorize some women..."Coffee is for Closers" GlenGarry Glenross

I've lost to Rob Kimmons many times...and never made one red cent for it.And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

So here's a question I've always wondered about... does Zuffa pay for accommodations for the fighter and/or his cornermen?
Because if not, that's a huge chunk of a fighter's purse.
