Check out the following excerpt from an article featured in The Canadian Press:
White maintains Couture was well compensated with a UFC contract second only to Chuck Liddell.
“Randy Couture is a multimillionaire, don’t ever feel sorry for a multimillionaire, OK?” White told a news conference prior to UFC 77. “A lot of these guys are multimillionaires, they make millions and millions of dollars.”
Asked about Keith Jardine, who made just US$14,000 for beating Liddell at UFC 76, White said his fighters weren’t complaining – noting former champion Rich Franklin may only make $28,000 plus a $28,000 bonus if he beats title-holder Anderson Silva in Saturday night’s main event.
