      Yeah, I saw that a few weeks back. 100% backed on the humor.

      What pisses me off is that Royler feels justified in asking for such an insane amount. WTF. The laborer that built your house started off at $8/hr, and he doesn't have the luxury of complaining or negotiating.

        Does he have to pay Ashida Kim a royalty for using that excuse?

          Gracie isn't going to Abu Dhabi to build a house though.

          I think the sum he is asking is high, but I see his point.

            I'm not sure that I get what you're saying, but the point is that he's not contributing anything to the "world" (so to speak) that's worth $75,000. I'm not sure one 10-minute grappling match is really worth anything at all, except for the fact that it would be a huge attraction. Still not $75,000.

            Pro athletes, in general, get paid too much to play a game.

              Meh, elite people in their field will try to negotiate for as much as they can, particularly if their job is one that puts them in harm's way. It's worth it if there's enough fans and sponsors willing to pay to see it (and this is coming from someone who's not a sportsfan). If people are willing to buy millions of albums from a musician, even if they're not "contributing anything to the world", then they earned the money. The world is more than just structures and things you can see.

                Gracie is not in the same situation as a laborer building houses for $8 an hour.

                There just aren't enough people who care enough to pay or advertise to make this event commercially profitable if there's a $75,000 price tag.

                I don't see 5,000 people paying $20 or so each for this. That what I'd guess would make a small profit, considering the cost of the Gracie purse, plus setting up a web broadcast, advertising, getting the provider fee covered, and a small purse for Bravo.

                  They should make it a $75,000 purse to the winner and guarantee him nothing.

                    Fixed, because it seems like Bravo hasn't been asking for anything in all this.

                      And that's why I respect him that much more. The fans are just as culpable as the competitors for letting the stakes rise so high, but it doesn't mean the problem isn't there.

                      We can agree to disagree, I'm perfectly ok with that.

                        Royler has the right to demand as much as he feels he is worth, everyone else has the right to mock him for it. I like Cobrinha's attitude towards the submission only match with Mendes. "Let's do it!" He was offered 10 grand and leapt at it. I wish Royler would do the same.

                            There's almost as much faggotry in this re-match as there is in a Sirc gong sau thread.
