    Thats a pretty expensive payout actually. Roy probably either lost money or broke even at best.

    I watched it. Boring lay and pray. He fought a much smaller dude and didn't inflict a lot of damage. He's not Brock Lesnar but his size and athleticism will carry him for a while.

    For starters, you never see entire payouts for boxing PPV's. I've been asking for them forever, and it's nice to finally see one.

    It also is an example of, once you get past the elite, boxers and MMA fighters aren't really paid all that different.

    I watched the fight the next morning on Dailymotion.com just out of curiosity. Lashley won, but he was far from impressive. He obviously has a lot of strength and a solid wrestling background, but he's still clueless when it comes to MMA. His strikes were horrible, he had no submission attempts, and he came real close to getting subbed himself in an armbar.

    If Guida wasn't so much smaller than Lashley, he probably would've beaten him. If we're using Brock Lesnar as a measuring stick for Lashley, he has a long, long way to go.

    As for the PPV itself, I didn't order it, and I can't imagine why anybody would. On the boxing side you have a washed up 'has-been' facing a washed up 'never-was', and on the MMA side you had two average at best heavyweights, and one of them being Jeff Monson, who is ALWAYS in the most boring fight of the night. Wasn't exactly a can't miss night of fights.

    This Particular Card ISN'T a Good Example to Compare MMA Cards to...It was a NON-HBO, NON-Showtime PPV...What'd it Cost, $29.95???...

    REED Knows U HATE to Admit it, but Boxing Still PAYS Better on the Whole....Shit, Compare the Main Eventers Pay from This PPV w/that of the Rampage-Jardine PPV...Did Jardine Get as Much as Sheika???...

    Low budget event in general. Nothing interesting about those numbers. When a guy like Brian Minto can head over to Germany and make hundreds of thousands of dollars, the MMA and boxing payscales are nowhere near "similiar".

    I can´t believe Roy paid these out of shape MMA journeymen Nelson and Monson that much money. Some UFC guys must be mad now. :):)

    Nobody gives a damn about the undercard fighters and they get paid accordingly. The main event fighters who are drawing the crowds ratings/ppv buys will get paid a fair cut of the money generated. They usually get paid more then all UFC fighters for a whole card combined or in De la Hoyas case a whole year :)

    Well, this is the only boxing PPV I can find numbers on, so it's all I have to compare.

    This was a part MMA event, and just a low budget show as others have attested. Not a good example.

    And the boxers still earned more, so yeah :kidcool:

    It's a very difficult pill for you to swallow I know, but boxers earn more than MMA fighters, elite, national level, bum level, whatever.

    AGAIN, Sheika Got $50,000 for LOSING to Roy Jones on PPV...How Much did Keith Jardine Get for LOSING to Rampage on PPV???:dunno:...& Bear N Mind, the UFC PPV was Probably TWICE as Expensive as the Roy Jones PPV...REED would Bet that the UFC PPV Generated SIGINIFICANTLY MORE Buys as Well...

    Find some boxing PPV pay outs and then we can compare. Boxing doesn't publish it's numbers like MMA. You can't compare what you can't find!

    Find it and then we talk.
