...sorry but thats something that Evan Tanner and Helio Gracie bought maybe once or twice...but something tapout provided consistantly for years.
They owe a great amount of personal monies due to Mask, that is why they are mourning more...he wasnt a feature...he was a finanical supporter
Sort of, his family created it and all, they did make the first few events lol
It was their idea, etc...
I understand why they thought to do more, they care about money.
I just didn't feel like he deserved more than Helio or Evan, and I still don't.
