    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Ever wonder how much a training camp costs?

    Gabe Ruediger breaks down how much his 2.5 week fight camp has cost him thus far.

    So this 2.5 week camp has cost roughly over $5000...ugggh, now that hurt. You know what though? Its worth it.

    and $2200 of that is because he flew up some more of his buds / mates and had to find places to stay for them.

    5000 is a lot of money, but let`s not forget how much they can earn in a good tournament:

    Not to mention all the misc. **** he's probably leaving out. And this is USD. Not AUS, so that's like $45000 over there.

    Yeah, but this is a short notice fight. 2.5 weeks of training is not that much time. Imagine if it compounded for most fighters who have like 3-4 months of prep time?

    I suppose the ideal situation would be to have your sponser pick up all/part of the tab. That's pretty steep consider the paltry nature of most undercard purses.
