Highest paid in UFC
It seems Dan Henderson is at odds with Dana White over contract negotiations....
At Thursday's UFC 104 pre-event press conference, UFC president Dana White said that Henderson's financial demands are simply unrealistic.
"We're at a stalemate right now," White said. "The money that [Henderson] is asking for would make him by far the highest-paid guy in the UFC."
"You know what's [expletive] hilarious?" White asked. "I went to dinner last night, and [Henderson's] lawyer and (Strikeforce CEO) Scott Coker are sitting at dinner together last night. I said, 'What are the [expletive] odds that out of every restaurant in L.A., the one that I go to, these guys are here?'"
It would be interesting to know what sort of money Hendo's asking for, per fight/signing bonus plus win purse....
Lesnar is the UFC's highest paid, around $400,000 per fight....And that says it all...
Its rumoured that Chuck Liddell used to get around $500,000 per fight during his prime and Randy Couture was around $250,000...
I seriously doubt what Dana says is true.
It's he said/he said at this point, but Dana's a fucking liar.
Dana cant help himself, its almost like he needs to go public with any matter regarding the company. Look at how he handled the whole Randy thing...Or the Tito thing.....Or the Chuck thing.....Or the Rampage thing....
